Before visiting Knysna I read all the reviews of East Head Café and wanted to see what the fuss is all about. The service from entering the Café until departing eas simply world class. Authentic friendliness and warm smiles like I have not exprienced any where else in the world. We sat outside right at the end with unspoiled views of the Heads and boats on the lagoon. I think, however, views are just as great inside as it was a little chilly outside - which is why you will find blankets at all the tables.
Then there is the food which is simply so fresh, well prepared and reasonably priced. Having said all this, the management is doing an amazing attentive job. If I could, I would give this restaurant 6 stars.
A special shout out to Juanita. You are an excellent ambassador to East Head Cafe.

The East Head Cafe was walking distance from our accommodation. The view from the restaurant is unbelievable! And the food was delicious; I would definitely recommend the fish and chips. Service is very efficient and the staff were super friendly. Highly recommended.

We went for lunch here and the view was breathtaking! We didn't wait long for a table, and the mussel pot was outstanding! The service was fantastic and I could have sat there all day long basking in the sun and the view of The Heads! Highly recommend this to anyone and everyone!
