Description: Not exactly a restaurant... Not exactly a bar... Definitely not a deli... Well, not exactly a deli... It's an eating place, a drinking place and definitely a meeting place. And it's a gift shop, a clothing emporium, a food store, a fish monger and a bakery, too. And the finest wine shop this side of the grape curtain. And it's always on one, single line of latitude - the 34th parallel (but only on the Waterfront at the Knysna Quays).

We ate here on our 2nd night in Knysna & it was recommended by our hotel the Log-inn. We shared 6 grilled oysters in garlic butter & blue cheese (86 rand) to start-scrumptious : we'll definitely return for these!
For mains, I had the baked line fish topped with a creamy lemon, bacon & tomato sauce, fresh parsley & parmesan with green stir fry veg (160 rand) & an extra portion of savoury rice @15 rand. Delicious, sauce on fish was rich & filling. The other half had the prawn & line fish combo (5 queen prawns & grilled fresh fish in olive oil & special 34 South spices) : 245 rand. He loved the fresh line fish!
To finish, the other half had an Americano (22 rand) & Malva pudding (45 rand) which disappeared in no time.
We shared a bottle of very drinkable Bonnievale Merlot at 130 rand & 1L Water at 30 rand. Our waitress Eileen did a great job! Overall, best meal in south Africa for us both in our 8 night stay so far! We plan to return for our last night in Knysna also! Well done to the chefs!!

The seafood is awesome, and the sushi has a nice local twist. The service is also good. In season the restaurant is very busy so might want to call ahead to book.

Had a lovely breakfast here. The poached eggs were cooked and presented very beautifully. Sardines were excellent.
