Where To Eat In Knysna
Knysna is a true feast for the eyes in every sense, and we all know that a wonderful holiday focuses heavily on delicious dishes that leave you wanting more. So If you are making your way to our seaside town with the intention of treating your tastebuds to the best cuisine we have to offer, then we have some suggestions to share with you!
Deciding on where to go for lunch, breakfast, or dinner, largely depends on what type of dining experience you are interested in. Luckily, whether you are a casual bistro lover or a fine dining fanatic, there are multiple spots to eat that will be perfect for you.
There’s no denying that breakfast is the important meal of the day, so why not treat yourself to a wholesome meal at Oak Leaf? The stunning garden and courtyard setting is the ideal spot for families with children, as well as cyclists looking to fuel their bodies with a nutritious breakfast during their break. Oak Leaf is where the beauty of tranquillity and background chitter chatter meet over delicious meals and steaming cups of freshly ground coffee.
Speaking of coffee, if you happen to be a coffee connoisseur, Trinity is a must-visit as well! Il de Pain is another excellent choice for a great cup of coffee, breakfast, and lunch with its freshly baked bread and pastry options that could even put a Parisian bakery to shame. It only takes one visit to make Il de Pain a favourite that you will return to each time you visit Knysna.
If heading out late in the afternoon to witness the beautiful sunset and emergence of the starlit sky, then Knysna is about to impress you with dining and tapas options. Butterfly Blu not only boasts incredible views of the ocean, but also offers delicious cocktails, an extensive menu, takeaway pizza options, and an extensive wine list. This restaurant gives patrons an inviting atmosphere, without trying too hard. For another casual setting with an upbeat sense of fun, 34°South is an excellent choice! This restaurant offers fresh local seafood dishes including delectable sushi, a dim sum selection, as well as a mouth-watering beef espetada. Tapas & Oysters and O Pescador are right up your alley if you’ve been dying to get your hands on freshly caught seafood.
If you are looking for a dining experience that closely resembles fine dining, Alkira Lodge is bound to impress you. We offer a 4- Course daily set menu shopped for by chef, Robyn Steyn. Alkira usually services in-house guests but occasionally there is space for an outside table, where guests can marvel at the incredible sunset terrace views with a glass of complimentary bubbles, followed by dinner. Be sure to call or WhatsApp with date options.
