Die Gieter, Deli & Restaurant is one of those places that, once you’ve visited it, you’ll make a mental note to return as soon as possible! Whether it’s brunch with your spouse, lunch with the family, sundowners on the deck or an amazing dinner with friends, we aim to give you a fantastic experience.
The view over the Knysna Estuary is panoramic, the food scrumptious and stylishly prepared with comfortable seating inside or out, providing an inviting atmosphere in beautiful surroundings, no matter what the weather. Hannes and Daléne Botha’s transformation, of what used to be Madiba’s Tide, has succeeded in bringing a distinct personal touch to the estate, radiating an atmosphere of sincere hospitality that makes visitors feel as if they are in fact visiting long lost friends!
Die Gieter is conveniently situated on the ever so popular exercise route, Phantom Pass Road, which makes it an ideal turn-off for cyclists or joggers looking to re-fuel, whether it be on a hearty breakfast or something more healthy before going further. The property also boasts a 25 hectare private nature reserve with walking trails, which is open to the public, so put on your wellies and explore the various bird and plant species it has to offer. For those who are not so adventurous, visit the deli and browse their produce and the Biggie Best line of home interior products.
Whilst trying to keep close to their South African roots with dishes like bobotie, samoosas, ‘skilpadjies’ and ‘sago’ (tapioca pudding), there is something for everyone; from deep fried fish and chips to mouthwatering fillet steak at prices that would suit any budget.
Die Gieter, which also has a bar, is open Mondays to Saturdays from 08:00 to 22:00 and on Sundays, from 08:00 to 16:00.

- 5 Phantom Pass Road – visible from the N2, with a big board close to the turn-in. It’s just before the bridge, the left turn, as you’re approaching Knysna from Cape Town, a few kilometres after the Rheenendal turn-off. Alternatively, as you leave Knysna from P.E.’s side, turn right after the bridge across the Knysna Estuary.
