Lunch & Evening Dinner

In season we serve lunch daily from 1pm – 4pm and evening dinner daily from 6pm – 9pm. Our private chef is composing a daily a’la Carte menu where you can choose to have one, two or three courses. So stay with us for lunch and dinner and enjoy the best view in Knysna. To reserve a table for dinner call or email us, alternatively on arrival just inform one of our helpful staff of your request.
