Where To Eat
There are an ever growing number of places to have a meal out when in Knysna with all tastes catered for - from Traditional African to delicious freshly caught sea food prepared in European style.

As you can see from the pictures here, the Knysna Holidays Team have sampled one or two of these - well, actually probably most of them by now.


The price of a family dining out in Knysna works out to be very cheap for the excellent quality of both food and service that you will receive.

We have included here a list of our favourites to date and give them our own personal star ratings.

Knysna - 5 Star Restaurants 5 stars means the restaurant merits a special trip. The food, wine, decor and service will be exceptional but you should expect to pay.
Knysna - 4 Star Restaurants 4 stars means the restaurant merits a special trip. The food, wine, and service will be very good.
Knysna - 3 Star Restaurant 3 stars means the restaurant is good. The food and wine will be good.
Knysna - 3 Star Hilidays 2 stars indicates the restaurant still deserves a look. Everything will be eatable, if not perfect, and you should not expect it to be to expensive.
Knysna - 1 Star Restaurant 1 star means that if its on your way, you should stop. For the kind of restaurant it is, a one star establishment should still serve reasonable food in a decent environment.

Some of our restaurants have not been reviewed to date and as such have not been given a Knysna-Holidays star rating.

The restaurants reviewed range from typical family based to the more 'Haute Cuisine' - but all offer a great meal and in some cases, great entertainment.
