We were welcomed by this Italian manager who really helped us with our choices. I wanted a local beer and he suggested forester, a beer made in Knysna. The food was superb. There are lots of choices for vegetarians and that made my day. My pasta was good and my kid loved his chicken mayo sandwich. Beautifully located and a restaurant with a good vibe. Please do go and spend a lazy day eating at this place at the Knysna waterfront

Genaro really knows his stuff. Superb pizzas and pasta and so much more. Make a booking if possible as they are constantly busy with both tourists and locals alike. Prices are very reasonable given they are situated right in the waterfront area.

Cafe Mario is well worth a visit if you are in Knysna. Pastas are superb as are the meat dishes! Didn't get around to having dessert but have heard the tiramisu is outstanding. Service was friendly & efficient. Will definitely be going back the next time we are in the area.

Caffe Mario is the most popular restaurant in Knysna Quays on the waterfront. When we visited them last evening, the restaurant was packed with residents and tourists. Our friendly server got us a table soon.
The restaurant is small, but vibrant and lovely. The seating is comfortable, the restaurant has a cosy vibe. We ordered our drinks and two kinds of pizza and pasta and everything was excellent. The food, the ambience and the service is fantastic. Caffe Mario is a must-visit Italian restaurant and bar in Knysna.
