Guys don't miss visit this place while u r in knysna. Honestly, they make a good steak I tried both Ribeye and fillet and they were really delicious. I am glad that am staying here for 2 more nights so I can come here again. Btw, even other dishes are delicious salad and oyster.

My first time as a local visiting Café Z and I am impressed! What a sumptuous lunch, friendly service and beautiful environment you offer. Our table was even greeted by the head chef which made me feel a little like royalty. Thank you for making my ordinary day, extraordinary. I will definitely be visiting more.

Found this through a trip advisor review and boy, am I glad I went. The views of Knysna and the lagoon from uphere are spectacular! The restaurant's atmosphere is great, soft music in the background, fire crackling, friendly staff...... The food was awesome, I really had a great meal. When I'm in the area again I'll definitely choose Cafe Z

Excellent wine, terrible service and food! Expected so much more, highly disappointed. Waitresses constantly avoiding to serve our table, the fire was only lit when another couple requested it, 2 hours after us!
