As Knysna’s primary destination marketing organisation, Knysna & Partners continually strives to showcase and thus promote the diverse offerings of our town: the natural world, adventure pursuits, art, music, accommodation – we have it all covered.
Now, for 10 days in October, we are going to place the spotlight on our town’s culinary hotspots during the Knysna Restaurant Week 2016. Designed along similar lines to the extremely popular New York City Restaurant Week, our aim is to share the local passion for food and to garner as much support as possible for Knysna’s diverse restaurants. There are many from which to choose, each offering an eclectic mix of flavours to suit all taste buds.
“We organised a Knysna Restaurant Week back in 2012, which proved very successful,” said Glendyrr Fick of Knysna & Partners. “We had 35 restaurants participating that year, and a survey done after the promotion saw an increase of 30% in sales for those restaurants involved, and we hope to see even better results this year.”
Knysna Restaurant Week is open free of charge to all members of Knysna & Partners, and for just a nominal administration fee of R150 for all nonmembers. Each participating restaurant will be required to have one fixed-price brunch, lunch and dinner meal on offer:
Participating restaurants are required to feature a fixed-price menu item, which should slot in one or more of the following price categories: brunch for R60; and/or lunch for R90; and/or two dinner options of a two-course meal for R120 and/or three-course for R150. Leading up the Knysna Restaurant Week, all participating restaurants will be actively marketed across all of Knysna & Partners’ social media platforms, including the weekly newsletter, which boasts an incredibly large database. In addition to this, we will be printing a pamphlet with the information of all the participating restaurants, which will be handed out to all visitors that make enquiries at the Tourism Offices in Knysna and Sedgefield.
Taking place during the October holidays makes it the perfect time for restaurants in the greater Knysna area to promote their offerings. Sign up now!
