The Sea Gypsy Cafe is one of the most unique places that you will ever visit. We are situated on the water our oysters are hanging from a pole alive in the sea. We offer a warm friendly and welcoming experience. Great food good value. We offer not only seafood but also meats, chicken, vegetarian meals as well as burgers, toasties and pastas. Takeaways can be placed over the phone and delivered by delivery extreme. A shuttle service is also available if required at no extra cost to and from the shop. Come and join us we are people that care. Hope to see you soon. Kind regards Colin and Team.

Relaxing !

The baskets are very good value for money. This is the best place for a quick bite or to relax with friends.

We had a good meal of Butterfish with lovely local wine and good draught beer. It was evening and dark when we went making for a lovely atmosphere as it's lit primarily with candles and oil lamps. It's a large version of an old fisherman shack complete with graffiti'd tables, benches, woodwork, netting draped around, open kitchen, and, for the... More

The Sea Gypsy is ideally located on the harbour and has a beautiful view. The Cafe has an informal, local vibe and offers nice seafood. It is a pity that they were a bit under staffed on a Friday night and we had to wait 90 minutes for our food, as we were a group of family. Service was a... More

The decor is very rustic but the fish is delicious and the shellfish is kept alive in nets in the sea so ultra fresh

There’s a gravel courtyard covered with a marquis for those that like to sit outside with the seagulls, or inside on wooden benches where the air may be a little fresher. The food is well priced, far from fancy and fills the hole. The usual fried and grilled seafoods populate the menu alongside steaks and a handful of burgers. For... More

We always make a point to go for brunch at least once whenever we are in Mossel Bay - the setting alone and the ambience always makes it worthwhile, the food is an added bonus as it is always good especially the baskets which are more suited for two than for one - must be the only restaurant in the...

We went there for breakfast, as we were staying in the Santos Express nearby, and it was very poor. Basic sandwiches on toast bread, poor filter coffee and on top of it poor service, who messed up our order and forgot about some requests.
