Visited for an evening meal, we waited an hour and a half for our main courses. 2 main meals were then wrong and had to be corrected. One of the corrected meals was inedible. Wouldn’t return and can’t recommend, spoilt our evening.

I went to JJ with my parents, I had been already 3 years ago and decided to go again - we had scallops - a bit overcooked but still delicious, cocodrilo kebab also very nice and as a main the duo fish (hake and a local fish) which was amazing! Highly recommendable! Also the manager was super nice and attentive!

We called in here on the spur and got a table for 2 as it was wuite busy. Menu looked interesting my wife had a Steak I had the vension burger both were well cooked and tasty the steak just melted in the mouth. Portions were of a good size though neither of us could finish them. The only problem was service was very slow

We went as a group for an evening meal and had a set menu, which was very tasty and served promptly. The service was excellent and friendly

Lovely restaurant. Staff really friendly. Was shown to our table overlooking the lagoon. Justin the owner was in attendance this evening and came and introduced himself to us. We felt we had gone to a friends house for dinner. Justin came and sat with us a couple of times to chat. The food was amazing - light, fresh and very tasty. The evening was concluded with some lovely singing from the staff and a lovely, complimentary, glass of local sherry shared with Justin. Would definitely recommend and would definitely love to go back.
Thank you for finishing our visit to Knysna in style.
