Eating Out

 

Knysna’s vast range of western, eastern and African-style restaurants capture South Africa’s wide diversity of cultures, delivering for all tastes – from contemporary to traditional as well as experimental ones.

 

Of course Knysna’s oysters are well-known and always a favourite with visitors.  However, meat, game, fish, seafood and vegetarian dishes are also popular.

 

WINE:

South Africa has two main wine growing areas, namely the Northern Cape and the Western Cape.  The grapes cultivated in these areas are cabernet sauvignon, pinot noir, chenin blanc and Riesling.  The two varieties that originated in South Africa are the Cape Riesling and pinotage.

Go for wine tasting at the Bramon Wine Estate to experience some South African wines and combine this with cheese tasting, fresh oysters, garden salads and homemade breads.
