Stil delivering awesome experience!

I visited every year since 2009 and the service, quality of food and value for money has not changed! What a littel gem of a affordable restuarant with a great view of sunsets over the sea and mountains. Sit and relax while enjoying fresh seafood and ice cold beers or wine.

We tried the sea gypsy cafe for dinner. Firstly there were people smoking all over us, after we ask for a "non-smoking" area. Secondly, the waiter recommended a T-bone steak to my husband and when he ate the first bite the steak was sour. The manager confirm and offer another steak. I don't think this was very professional at all.... More

Most of the eggs had slimy whites and the toast could not even be called toast. We have been in Mossel Bay for 7 years now and used to go there frequently but... More

We went there for a quick lunch. Be prepared to wait a while for food. And the establishment is not that child friendly. On a windy day in Mossel Bay I would not recommend to go there, as the best seats are outside on picnic benches. Food is very good overall.

I love the Sea Gypsy so very much. The food never ever disappoints and it is just such a pleasure to be surrounded with such amazing character! People writing with sharpies everywhere, the view of the water, the smells, it truly is a unique spot filled with friendly staff.

It's best to go when the weather is good so that you can sit outside and enjoy the view from right on the edge of the quay. Light meals and breakfasts are not expensive.

The Sea Gypsy is situated on Mossel Bay harbour. Their furniture does not meet 5 star rating. But their food & service are +5 star quality. Therefore my daughter from Cape Town insists every time that she pay a visit to us, that we go there for a treatment. Feel free to try them! Regards, Dawid
