Fantastic sea food on a rustic ambience. Be ready to put your feet on a sand floor. Unfortunately doesn't have an alcohol license (take your wine from home)

If you are going to Knysna, do not miss this restaurant! The seafood is excellent - prawns, calamari, tuna, everything. The setting is fantastic too - you would never guess there is a restaurant hiding in the dockyard before you turn the corner. An unforgettable experience.

The food was outstanding good. We had crab cake, oysters, soup and a seafood platter. It's hard to define our favourite. Everything was awesome! BYOW - Bring your own wine (here it's allowed to bring your own alcoholic drinks, because the restaurant doesn't sell) The restaurant is highly recommended

This place is very informal and enjoyable for that. Our grilled yellowtail was superbly cooked and tasty but some of our other dishes weren't great - scallops were very disappointing and the chips not the best. However it is BYO and very reasonably priced

We dropped in one lunchtime after reading good reviews on TA. We weren't disappointed....a quirky eatery, a bit rough and ready compared to many other restaurants but what a find. The fish was beautifully fresh and cooked well. Would definitely return.

We were taken to this amazing eatery by a local resident for supper one evening. What an amazing experience, what with the ambiance being set by the overhead canvas awning and the sea sand under ones feet, the feeling is of eating on the beach. The menu is extensive to say the least and the variety on offer is unsurpassed... More
