Chicken livers

An acquired taste, chicken livers certainly have those who love them and those who turn their faces away.

I challenge anyone in Knysna to turn a nose up at the most delectable chicken liver starter ever tasted.

Food is not just about the eating, it is about the look and the smell, the way it is placed in front of you and of course about the taste. The attractive and delicate presentation of these sherry marinated livers on a bed of superbly prepared pastry is a mouth-watering sight, and the experience of the tasting, well you just have to try it.

I must say I have never had an unpleasant meal, cup of coffee or service at Cruise Cafe.

Luciano Pavarotti was right when he said “One of the very nicest things about life, is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating”.

We just love stunning, hidden gems like Bistro Celeiro. The venue and views from the ‘stoep’ is spectacular and the food – delicious home cooked meals prepared by friendly owners with care for details and exquisite tastes, and great value for money. Bring your own wine and you’ll have an unforgetable time with friends, family or just yourself…

This is a lovely ‘hidden gem’. Homemade food with local and organic ingredients. The setting is beautiful, with stunning mountain views. Susan and Julio are the perfect hosts, friendly and personable. We love it!
