“Very good food in pleasant surroundings”
Reviewed February 29, 2012

We got there too late to enjoy the sunset from the garden, but are assured that this is worthwhile. Because it was a cool evening, we ate inside at a pleasant table well separated from its neighbours. The menu is mostly locally caught seafood and is very good. The seafood casserole and the sole were tasty and well presented, although the portions were over-large. The wine list is not too extensive but is adequate, and the wines are very reasonably priced. Our sauvignon blanc was really delicious at R130. The service was efficient and pleasant. Overall, the restaurant represents very good value for money.

“pure excellence”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

Our group of friends used the private lounge at Cafe Gannet for a slide show. We decided on having sushi for dinner and was not dissapointed. It was the best sushi I ever had- including one of the best sushi restaurants in Soho. Furthermore, the service was prompt and the staff friendly. We had a wonderful evening- thanks Cafe Gannet!
