Just visited this cute bar at the back of the Mojo Market. Very reasonable prices (USD) and even better - fabulous food and rosé! Let me preface this review by saying I’m pretty particular with my oysters - or any seafood (a bad batch can ruin your vacay!). The large oysters were fresh, firm, and briney. The cooked mussels - perfectly plump, served with a light, doughy fried accoutrement to dip in the delicious sauce of onion with a touch of cream. Highly recommend the oysters and mussels - I’d say the mussels slightly edge out over the oysters. I’d come back again, which is a rarity on these types of trips. So tasty and a must visit in the Market!!!

These guys serve only 2 things, but they are both excellent! We stopped only for a taste but ended up ordering extra oysters. We’ll visit them as often as possible till the end of our trip.

I have become such a addict to the Mussel monger and support them weekly for my fix. Best mussels served with vetkoek and great oyster prizes. Every time I am blown away. Renovations look great. Capetown_girl will see you next week

I tried the mussels and they were outstanding. Cooked to perfection with Garlic and Lemon and lots of butter. They are served with a traditional South African bread that is deep fried, although very fattening, it was amazing.

Tatenda prepared some wonderful mussels for us which absolutely hit the spot!

The mussels were fresh, well prepared and presented but Tatenda was the real star of the show - so cheerful and helpful!

Good eating options in this good market but I strongly recommend this one.
