view web site ›'s insider take:

Established in 1949, this no-frills tavern offers garlicky mussels, snoek pâté, fish and chips, and, as the name implies, a great selection of oysters. Both cultivated and wild local oysters on the half shell are available for takeout or to savor at a beachfront table. Make a reservation if you're visiting during the South African summer or during the Knysna Oyster Festival, held annually in June or July. Tours of the adjacent oyster-processing facility are available for a small admission fee and include a tasting of the bivalves matched with sparkling wine.
