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.

“OK for a light snack”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

So the location is pretty good, but the choice and price of food/drinks were a little steep. My husband and I visited many years previously without a little one and it was ok. Its not somewhere I would bring children, as there is no where for them to play, and the seating arrangement outside is too cramped. There are also no changing facilities for those with little ones.

“Will not go back any time soon”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

Absolute disaster. Use to be a lovely place to visit with delicious hake and chips. Not the same. Waiter forgot my husbands order. By the time his meal eventually came it looked like left overs and the whole family already finished their meal. Not recommended

“Can't get fresher”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

We've driven past a couple of times and it always seemed lively. No wonder! Fantastic fresh fish, which I doubt can be beaten... We had some Soul and some calamari. Hmmmmm lekkerrrr
