The Bell

Known as the smallest pub in Knysna, The Bell Tavern has classic charm and elegance. A particular quirk of this spot is an old-world cellar that can be seen through a window in the floor.

Bloo Bistro World Cafe

Bloo Bistro is a bohemian wonderland in the heart of Knysna. The menu consists of a unique blend of Mediterranean and South African cuisine. As well as great food, the bistro also has live music, comedy nights and other entertaining dinner shows. This is often dubbed the place for a slightly older crowd who fancy a fun night out.
