“Amazing meal”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

We had spent three weeks travelling around South Africa and the Cafe Gannet was definitely our best experience. The staff could not do enough for us and went out of their way to ensure that our meal was perfect. The food was absolutely delicious and the service superb. Thank you all at the Cafe Gannet for making our holiday so perfect and especially to Neal for attempting to get the rugby on but despite all his efforts was defeated by the weather!!!!
We would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

“The place to be!”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

On holiday in SA from Australia, we ate at many restaurants across the country. This place for me really stood out. From the outside we thought we were walking into a small cafe. This place is massive with 2 bars, private areas, beautiful sea views!! We tried the burgers for lunch and they were really outstanding, the beef was tender and cooked to perfection. The next day we dropped in for lunch again enjoying some very creative cocktails and gourmet pizza. Everything about this place was right. The service was also very friendly and professional. If you are in the area this place is a MUST to visit!

Cafe Gannet proved to have everything right! The owners have thought of everything. The service is outstanding. Food excellent, atmosphere even better! The blue cheese with caramelised onions is highly recommended.
