Description: 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.

One of the only places in Mosselbay where you feel part of the scenery. Great, fresh seafood at affordable price. Mosselbay brewed lager Glenhoff Draught on tap ! Friendly waiters. What more can you ask for.

We were lucky to get a table with great view. Service was good as well as the food. Lovely hake and chips.

“excellent”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

very casual, a bit dingy looking at first, but the best calamari I've ever had, anywhere. Not being from South Africa, I've never tried Hake before, but Gypsy Cafe has the best I've had so far. My husband and I have eaten here twice and would definitely eat here all the time if we didn't live on another continent.

“Very disappointed”
Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

We have been eating at the Sea Gypsy for nearly ten years...our last experienced on 23rd January 2013 was not good. When our plated food arrived the feta cheese looked like it had been through a food blender. How can they plate up a dish like that and send it out...they must wake up!...

“relaxed atmosphere by the water”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Sea Gypsy was recommended as the place to go for oysters in Mossel Bay. They were right! Reasonably priced, fresh oysters, right by the water. It is a very simple place, with friendly and efficient staff. I ordered a ham&cheese sarnie to go, which included tomatoes and chips and this was just as good. You must try the local beer
