Describing themselves as indefinable, not a deli, plain restaurant or just a bar, we like to think of 34 South as an ‘experience’. I can tell you personally that I never go through Knysna without stopping by. 34 South has got it ALL – a sushi bar; delicious hot gourmet meals for cold days and refreshing, beautiful salads for warm days; cocktails; beautiful wines; the best seafood; deli foods; a full gift store and an enviable location in the Knysna Waterfront.
Open from morning until late, the menu is vast. Take a seat and peer out at the yachts and people milling about, while you drink in the beautiful aromas wafting about the restaurant. There are many delicious treats to choose from the deli counter, to make up your own salad or sandwich. Yummy delights such as pickled calamari heads, pate, herrings, dolmades, a variety of olives, artichokes, dips and oysters. A dedicated revolving sushi bar delivers fresh California rolls and fresh fish as you wait. The main menu beckons with lip-smacking rib-sticking fare such as the red Thai mussel pot, seafood bisque, seafood jambalaya, linefish espetada, paella, crab curry, queen and king prawns and crayfish. Remember to order a bottle of crisp white wine with your seafood or a cocktail if you’re feeling adventurous on your holiday!
34 South continues to impress with offerings such as kassler chops, Cajun ostrich fillet and curries, all served in generous portions, so always come hungry.
Finish off your 34 South ‘experience’ with one of the many impressive looking cakes, desserts or pastries - the baklava, or a slice of good old South African milk tart sound good to us.
