About Tapas and Oysters

ABout Us

Welcome to Tapas and Oysters Knysna

Tapas and Oysters is a vibrant, waterside restaurant situated on Thesen Island in the idyllic town of Knysna. Perfectly located with views over the Knysna Lagoon towards the iconic Knysna Heads. We are well known for our great food, friendly service and vibey atmosphere.

With a wide selection of Spanish, Mediterranean and South African Tapas you are bound to find something that tickles your taste buds. In additional to our Tapas menu we also offer oysters (fresh from our oyster tanks), fresh seafood dishes, homemade dips and olives, crunchy salads and desserts. All Tapas dishes are served with our freshly baked rocket salt baguettes. Don’t forget about our legendary Steak, Egg and Chips best served with an ice cold Mitchell’s beer available on tap.

Not in the mood for Tapas, why not try some of our sushi dishes. All sushi dishes and Sushi platters are prepared to order in our Sushi Bar. Some of our customer favourites include our crispy fried California rolls, crispy fashion sandwiches and the all time winner, the shrimp tempura roll.

Feeling daring, try our “Tapas Favourite” Pickled Jalapeno Poppers with a side order of our specially aged chilli Tequila. Not for the faint hearted! Chilli Tequila is used as the base for our “Chiquila” Oyster dish which recently awarded us as the Best Casual Dining Restaurant at the 2013 Knysna Oyster Festival. Give it a try!

We have big screen Tv’s for you to watch sporting events, boat parking at our own moorings and a kiddies play park for the young ones to enjoy. Bring the family and come experience our quality tapas, freshly prepared sushi, local oysters and all round fiesta spirit. With everything we have to offer at Tapas and Oyster you will soon be absorbed by the surroundings of this special place.

Your Hosts: Yeshodah Booysen ( General Manager), Dale Widlake, Siya Melento, Candice Conradie, Cole Lubbe (Chef) and Owen October
