Our dinner this evening was absolutely magnificent. The kingklip fillet is the best fish I've eaten in 5 years - crispy on the outside and beautifully soft an juicy on the inside. We also had a baby peri peri chicken and that too was magnificent. The service was the best we've experienced in Knysna (Thando was our waiter), we met the delightful owners, and then topped it off with creme caramel of the ilk that only true Portuguese people know how to make. What a delightful evening and dinner! Thanks O Pescador!

The food was very bland. Service below average. Expensive for what you get. Well located but that it.

I have rudely forgotten their names but we had a lovely male waiter and female assistant. Waiter was hugely knowledgeable told us all about the food and the area where he grew up.

I had my first and last oyster (they are vile - but my husband assures me they were actually amazing if you like slimy cold fish )

Great local beers and wines.

I had a great steak dish called Esca... Something! Husband enjoyed the fish platter.

The oysters were so fresh, "alive two minutes ago" according to our amazing host. I had the seafood combo for one and everything was perfectly cooked and tasted really fresh.

The view from the terrace over Knysna Quay is great as well, and the service was exemplary. Really can't fault O Pescador at all.
