About Island Cafe and Tapas Bar

The Island Café and Tapas Bar are contemporary venues at the Turbine Boutique Hotel on Thesen Island in Knysna. The industrial, modern ambience of this unique venue is juxtaposed by quirky furnishings and unusual art, which warms the atmosphere and creates a vibrant hub.

The menu is small, but fabulously inclusive. It includes unusual options like butternut and goats’ cheese ravioli with pine nuts and sage butter, or a calamari and chorizo salad with mustard dressing. Even something as simple as their Karoo lamb burger is worth writing home about. The restaurant seats 90 patrons, and boasts stunning views of the canals and the pool deck. Plenty of glass has been utilised to ensure that the venue is light, spacious, and takes advantage of the views.

The Tapas Bar is the perfect place for after-work drinks, pre-dinner cocktails or a cold beer on a hot summer’s evening.
