I went here with my family on Christmas Day 2015 while staying in Knysna. This was part of my trip along the Garden Route. We had a lovely meal here with good wine, and even had the privilege of hearing some African singers!

The restaurant is having a nice, unique decor. The owner is all the time checking if everybody are all right. Food is very good. Steak and sea food delicious. A bit pricey. No AC inside, funs are working, but is still hot and no breeze.

Family of 9 fitted in at short notice on Xmas Eve. So obliging and had a lovely window table. Food was excellent as was the service and wine and not overpriced and too fancy.

We are several times in this restaurant full of atmosphere and good food too! It's to be found upstairs at the marina, owners are full of fun and you get serenaded nightly by the staff

A great end to our holiday. Trio of fish was perfect as was my wife's fillet. Only downside was the lack of air conditioning on the hottest day of the year.

There was heaps of bottles, some quite old. I suspect it is likely to still be there.
