What a lovely place to eat at when in Knysna. My husband and I visited them twice while honeymooning. Romantic, amazing, friendly and service, and probably the best sushi we have ever had (we have had sushi in every place we visit). Thank you Drydock! We will most definitely be back someday.

We didn't wait long considering we didn't book. The food was divine. From seafood to steak as we eat different types. Our waiter took good care of us. We had dessert which was awesome. Brownie in a cup. We will be in Knysna in March, we sure gonna dine there again.

Went there for Mom’s 60th birthday. They treated her like royalty. Lennox is a fantastic waiter, he organized the entire staff to sing happy birthday to our mother. Best calamari ever and great steaks �

My husband and I had an absolutely amazing experience at Drydock. The food is lovely, staff is friendly and cocktails are to die for. The views are stunning, was the perfect honeymoon dinner date location for us.

We had the best waiter in the entire restaurant, and he was a trainee!!! Superb service from him, thank you! The food was great, but the sushi wasn’t the best. Constructive criticism here, less rice, more fish 😊
The Patagonian Squid was superb, so was the fish and chips, half baby chicken peri peri was succulent and tasty! We will be back to try the sushi again and other items on your menu before we head back to Joburg!

Out with a group of friends scouting for a restaurant able to accommodate us during load-shedding. Drydock was there for us, and nothing on the menu was restricted as a result. Regardless, their food was very good, and perfect portions. Staff very friendly even with a large group. Will definitely recommend to others who are visiting the area.

Patagonian Squid Tubes - an amazing dish that I ordered (flavour profile was amazing). Combine that with the great view, gives you a very relaxed and enjoyable lunch experience.

Stopped off for dessert and coffee. Apple crumble tasty and well presented. Friendly staff who were not intrusive. Enjoyable and out of miserable weather with radiant heaters making up for some drafts coming through the canvas walls

This restaurant has just about everything you would expect from a 6-star establishment. From the moment you enter the restaurant until you finished your meal, you are sure to be treated like their VIP guest. Keep up the amayonaising work.

We took a chance and popped in around 9.30 ish on New Year’s Eve. They found a table for 2 upstairs and we were so glad they did!

Our waiter was friendly and fun and efficient. We started with cocktails and the strawberry daiquiri was fabulous, full of fresh strawberries.

We tried a selection of sushi and I can recommend the Tiger Platter as well as the tempura prawns.

Lovely food, fab service and a lively vibe made it a hit for us.

They had a great oyster and beer special, loved that. Food was average, calamari’s were a bit over spiced. The value for money was on the lower end. Service was good. View is great! Overall not bad restaurant. If you are counting pennies go to ocean basket instead

Had a very pleasant dinner here. Biggest plus is the setting. Fantastic views over the lagoon from the top deck. Calamari was crispy fried and juicy. Great atmosphere and friendly staff.

What a romantic little spot!
We enjoyed dinner overlooking the dock by candlelight whilst the cosy fire burned away in the back ground.
Of course being by the coast we only had 1 thing in mind- seafood! And it didn't disappoint.
We began with the oysters, they were fresh and prepared really well, I personally don't love it when oysters are really wet and still full of water when they come out, these guys had it spot on.
Big juicy mussels in a white wine sauce to start followed by what might be the most tender hake I've ever had, it literally fell apart and was seasoned beautifully!
Then dessert we had the kaluha chocolate mousse.
Oh em gee! What an indulgence, but a good one.
Neither of us could manage more than half but we enjoyed every bit of it!

Great view, great wine, delicious oysters. A bit on the pricey side, but I suppose that is what they can charge tourists who want to see the water and eat oysters.

The Drydock surprised us!

They do not have a lot of vegetarian options but the roulade was great and even enough for two to share.

The chocolate springrolls were also quite good.

The food was well prepared and nicely presented and the service was above average.

Nothing really to complain about here. 😄😄

Came for the half price sushi special as the other items on the menu are far too overpriced! Sushi was good but the pieces were abit on the small side. For dessert we ordered the vanilla creme brule and a apple strudel type thing. Very tasty but unfortunately very expensive.
