I have eaten here many times over the years and the delicious food has always been interesting and well prepared. The menu changes frequently and staff are well trained, attentive and friendly.
This was an absolutely incredible meal from start to finish. Making the reservation for dinner was effortless and the restaurant was very accommodating given they were already full. Walking in to a crackling fire on a rainy Friday evening was just perfection and when the chalk boards with the options for starters and mains were presented we knew it was going to be a memorable meal. 3 of the 4 diners at our table chose the salad buffet, which was filled with exciting options from red quinoa salad to a great interpretation of a Waldorf, everything we tried was delicious. And the cauliflower and blue cheese soup was incredible. Mains were just as impressive, pulled lamb bobetie and duck confit served with veg for the table, which included corn fritatas and baby marrow ragout. When the dessert board came out, regardless of how much had already been consumed we couldn't help but give in and thank goodness we did as the bread and butter pudding with salted caramel ice cream is something to travel for, incredible. Overall from food, ambience and service nothing was lacking, definitely coming back on our next trip to Knysna!

Amazing restaurant with a great atmosphere. You need to book far in advance during December. Run by a lovely husband and wife team. She manages front of house and he cooks with only one other person in the kitchen. The food is always good.
One of the best restaurants in the Knysna area.
Everything is good about it. ..ambience, food and service.
If you are in the area it is definitely worth a visit.
I don't think there is much else as good in the area for classic food. I have found the food in Knysna apart from this restaurant to be below average.
If i am in the area i love to go there for Sunday lunch.
