Benguela Brasserie - Best Waterfront Restaurant near Knysna

Knysna is one of the most beautiful towns in the Western Cape. With its special lagoon, stunning scenery and peaceful way of life, it has steadily grown to be a favourite place to both live and holiday in South Africa.

And, best of all, this Garden Route gem offers some great activities, travel experiences and excellent restaurants. The restaurants are particularly unique, as many of them overlook either the Knysna Waterfront, Lagoon or famous Heads.

With this in mind, here is one of the best Knysna restaurants on the water:

Although it is situated closer to Sedgefield than Knysna, this beautiful restaurant is one you definitely cannot miss if you’re in the Garden Route…

Serving up delicious, filling meals, prepared by talented Chef Yolisa Keyizana, guests can enjoy a classy and superb meal at this delightful restaurant, found at Lakeside Lodge (itself a stunner!).

Benguela Brasserie is perfect for fresh breakfasts, lovely lunches and stylish wine tastings. 

Note: All wines are sourced from their sister estate, Benguela Cove, near Hermanus.
