Eat Out Guide 2013

The emphasis is on comfort style food that delivers the maximum in flavour. Start with crispy calamari with Creole mayo; tiger prawns with chilli and garlic butter; or chicken wings with blue cheese sauce. For mains, consider one of the generous burgers, build-your-own-salad, or the signature smoked sticky BBQ back ribs, which are deliciously messy. Finish off with excellent key lime pie or rocky road ice cream.

A few people at our table ordered ribs. It was accompanied with a massive plastic apron, not a bib, an apron! Hilarious!! Suppose this encourages you to eat it with your hands, after which it’ll look like you need a bath!

Knife has a cool cocktail bar and is unashamedly a steak house, but one with a difference. We sat with the winemaker, DP Burger, and his wife and we had lots and lots to chat about with this charming couple, whose farm is in Franschhoek.


Knife on the Main Ingredient

From healthy choices to belly-buster breakfast options like Bubble and Squeak to Corned beef hash brown with a fried egg or smoked BBQ baby back ribs or bagels. For the needy – the best Bloody Mary in town – in jugs if preferred. Plenty of undercover parking. Knife waitron will stamp your parking ticket. WE SAY: Well-presented, no-frills.
