Excellent service, Miles was our very attentive waiter, and the fresh catch was kingklip - so tasty! I would recommend this place for a bite to eat and an excellent view of the Knysna bay at the Quay.

We were walk in customers during the Oyster Festival. We didn't make any reservations beforehand and the restaurant we planned to go eat at was fully booked (as expected of course). We felt like pasta as we wanted to carbo-load for the marathon the next day. When we walked in we asked if they had pasta on the menu. They said no but they were willing to make us something. With our luck a table opened (it was full at the time) and I want to say thank you for going the extra mile for us. The pasta was delicious!! The steak that was added was top class and the waiter was excellent and friendly!! I will definitely come visit again when I come back to Knysna.

Food took a while and music was quite slow and dreary. Hence the 4 stars. Friendly staff and good food.

After dinner all you need is that something sweet so we decided to come here for some dessert. The service is great all so friendly greeting with a smile and seeing that you're satisfied. We had the creme caramel which I found was amazing! And then we had a chocolate mousse - I found it had a bit too much of a strong cocoa taste but other than that it was really good. Need to make it a point to come here for dinner and see what they have to offer

Was on our way to another restaurant and then stopped to look at the menu board outside this restaurant. It looked nice inside too so we decided to go there instead. Sure glad we did. I was in the mood for fish and so they has several line fish specials on, I took the Gurnard. My girlfriend took the grilled calamari. Both dishes were prepared well and the lemon butter sauce they served with it was wonderful too. The waiter was polite and attentive, even the owner came by and recommended the fish. All in all a great experience out!

Friendliest staff that run around non stop for everything. Food was amazing and great spot to watch the sun set. Miles really took care of us and my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our mains and our dessert. Will be back when we next in knysna.

What a surprise! Great settingat the waterfront. Unfortunately missed by patrons as they are one level up.

Service was friendly and good.

The food was well prepared and very tasty. They really have interesting dishes.

Well worth the visit.

Situated at the Knysna Waterfront, this Portuguese restaurant has lovely views of the lagoon. The food was lovely, nothing spectacular but wholesome Peri-Peri chicken and prawns. One of the best restaurants in the area 😄

A pleasant restaurant next to the knysna waterfront. Had a sirloin with a Madagascar pepper sauce and fresh veggies. Was present although the meat was well over done although I asked for rare. I loved the sauce and the wine basting sauce on the steak. Overall a great Portuguese meal.

DELICIOUS FOOD! We stumbled across this restaurant when the one I had looked for was closed down. I am so glad we did! Friendly polite staff who were attentive. The food was delicious! Some of the best prawns and sardines we've ever had!

I was in that area for a week, eating at different places every day. On a few occasions I ordered a steak and requested it to be done medium. The last steak of the week was at O Pescador and unlike every other restaurant I ate at, it was actually cooked to perfection. The service was great and super friendly. My hyper 18 month old daughter was a bit of a challenge so my wife and I had to take turns taking her to run outside the restaurant. Their staff interacted with her as well making my overall experience at this restaurant one of the best for this week. Keep up the great work team!

What a charming restaurant with a great location and menu. We hadn’t booked, but they went out of their way to make us feel welcome, and even readily agreed to find us an indoor table when they noticed that we were getting cold outside. The food was delicious, and served with the minimum of delay. Slightly pricey, but then cheap is seldom good, and good is not cheap. We will be back there next time we are in Knysna

Lovely food. Great service. If you are by the coast you must have seafood because it just taste different from the city. Our waitress was very friendly. Food is so fresh. I recommend this place.

An absolutely gorgeous meal. We both had fish - sardines to start. The sardines were beautifully moist and not overpowered by the peppers. The kingklip was brilliantly cooked - you could really taste the flavour of the fish. The cob was moist with a lovely flaky texture and crispy crust. The desserts were delicious. The chocolate brownie was decadently rich, the cheesecake was light and creamy. The staff were attentive and the owner/manager was extremely welcoming. The reason for the 4* for service was that our waiter didn't go through the cooking process of the fish or discuss the specials. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant for a lovely meal with a warm ambience.

I had the prawn curry and my friend had chicken curry... we enjoyed the flavours and the freshness of the food,the view, the atmosphere In general. If you want real flavour and good food,this is the place. You won't regret it. Try them and go back again.

Great food, and atmosphere. The Chokka was amazing, as was the Salmon salad. Crayfish small for the price, but overall excellent quality

We had a superb dinner. The Mussels and Trinchado were sublime. My family and I love typical Portuguese food and O Pescador did not disappoint us. It’s a beautifully run family restaurant. Claudette made us feel at home and she accommodated all our needs. If you are looking for a sublime food experience please visit O Pescador in Knysna.

This was my first time at O Pescador. The place was pretty much empty at 3:30 pm. The restaurant is large, with indoor and outdoor seating areas. I ordered sardines as a starter and they were absolutely perfect and delicious. For the main, I ordered the grilled Kinglip, which was Aldo delicious. The service was good and I will definitely return.
