Island Café

The Island Café at the Turbine Boutique Hotel and Spa is a 90-seater establishment, overlooking the stunning Thesen Island canals and serving up extraordinary dishes from a diverse a la carte menu.

Inside, tables are nestled between the original turbines, which have been lovingly restored to create a retro feel. Majestic glass sliding doors pervade, creating an airy feel, while warm open fireplaces are strategically placed for those chilly winter months. Outside, the tables overlook either the canal, or the beautiful pool deck.

The 90-seater Island Café serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, and rivals the restaurants Knysna has to offer with a wide choice of carefully prepared dishes for all occasions. The lovely terrace is perfect for al fresco dining, while the airy interior with its colourful chairs will keep you cosy on cooler days.

The dinner menu changes often, and includes healthy eating options, classics with an imaginative new twist and decadent desserts.

Best Food in Knysna

Eaten here twice in the last week. Brilliant food and service. Recommend beetroot salad and fillet steak. Our waiter Yves was very attentive. Really pleasant surroundings and friendly staff. Our favourite place amongst the history of the turbine!
