Sirocco staff, great service and superb sushi are all very good reasons to visit this restaurant with wonderful views of the Knysna lagoon and Knysna Heads. This Knysna local is a big fan because the staff and management know that locals are as important as...More

We had a superb family meal here. The waiting staff were happy and attentive. The food was excellent and the setting on Thesen Island was beautiful. Highly recommended.

Excellent evening with delicious food. Calamari was very tender, best we have had this vacation. Tempura prawns off the sushi menu were great too. Devine pizza, steaks, Dom pedros and a pea an chocolate “brownie” could feed the whole family on its own. Professional waitress...More

Sirocco is a classical place to have a lazy diner. The service is perfect, fast and polite. The sitting is spacy. The sushi is reat. The fish is fresh. And the wines are right. Still, no personal touch. This is "a" restaurant. Not "THE" one.

Atmosphere was lovely, good music, great service, very friendly waiter Bereline that made us feel right at home. The food was very tasty and absolutely loved the Cheese cake and Apple crumble, best in town!

Disappointing experience. Visited Sirocco and few years back and truly enjoyed it - today not at all. Four out of five main meals disappointed. Sushi was ok.

Too dreadful for words. Bad idea to eat Sushi, but that's all we really felt like. The rice wasn't cooked. The service was shocking. The Ernie Els red wine tasted like a box wine. Avoid at all costs if you enjoy good food and wine.
