My boyfriend and myself came down to Knysna for my (surprise) Birthday week. He asked what I'd like to do for my Birthday Dinner and we (randomly) found Sirocco. The photos and review we came across we absolutely wonderful and so we headed through to celebrate. I have to point out some highlights of the evening. 1) the Staff we... More

We booked out the upstairs section of Sirocco for an important birthday party, and could not have chosen a better spot. The venue itself is fantastic - the views are unbelievable, with both inside and outside areas in case of inclement weather so all bases covered. The food was fabulous, but the most kudos must go to the staff. I... More

Pleasant surrounding. Good service. Food OK, personally I liked dessert best. Take a stroll after dinner, it is really beautiful place.

We had dinner at Sirocco twice, but came back for lunch several times to enjoy the great sushi. Definitely one of the best! Compliments to the great staff, especially Tasha whom we recommend for best service provider ever!

We had a wonderful experience at Sirocco, a couple of cocktails and sushi snacks were the order of the day. Our waitress was lovely and made the experience even better. We had a whole deck to ourselves with a stunning view of the canals and the bird life, if we didn't have to drive we'd have stayed there all afternoon!... More

Went there last night for a romantic dinner. Place looks very nice and by reading good reviews we decided to try the restuarant. We ordered 2 burgers, I ordered the Gourmet burger and my boyfriend had the beef burger and we were horribly dissapointed. The gourmet burger consists of mozzarella, chorizo, guacamole and onions. We waited over an hour for... More

Very nice location . Our waitress Yanela was very friendly. The fish and chips was nice and fresh however it was overcooked and 2 out of 4 was cold.

We went for lunch at Sirocco and both ordered a fillet of hake. We really fancied some calamari rings as a side. The waitress made a really strange face and laughed at us when we asked for the calamari just on it's own with no chips or salad, as well as the hake, then she said she'd have to check... More
