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.

I agree with many other reviewers that the menu and food is pretty average, the setting a bit ramshackle but cute if you like that sort of thing. The views are quite nice on a good weather day. Service was good - we didn't enjoy one of the fish dishes we ordered and they immediately brought an alternative without charging us. So very nice of them to do that. This would be a good place for a family outing where the ambiance would be fun and different for the kids. Maybe not so much for a romantic outing. Lots of fried food here.

Coming from Europe we are not used to smoking in restaurants, though we found that in SA people generally also do not. Imaging our surprise that in this restaurant non-smokers are obliged to sit in a cold marquee outside.

The interior is ramshackle rope and planking with graffiti all over the tables, although this might be a deliberate attempt to have it feel like a hipster/surfer hangout.

The food was average so-so (plastic cups with sauces on your plate), though the fresh sole itself was good.

Sit out side and watch the sea and the seagulls while you snog on their great calamari and chips - or the other great seafood.

Invited here for lunch with family. Service average and food uninspiring. Quite disappointing considering the spectacular views and setting of the restaurant.

One of the best settings in town. On waters edge next to the harbour wall. Rustic atmosphere. The Pirates Breakfast and the Combo baskets come highly recommended. Good value for money.
