Description: The Café Gannet Restaurant is Mossel Bay's seafood House. Acclaimed for local seafood specialties, ingeniously prepared. Coastal oysters, black mussels and Mossel Bay Sole are delivered daily from the harbour to make a delectable and varied a la carte menu, which includes pizza, salads, meat dishes, light lunches and Rainbow Cuisine. For a relaxing afternoon, come and enjoy a cocktail overlooking the Indian Ocean... The Cafe Gannet is a great treat, which will please the most discerning palate - very trendy, so bookings are recommended.

Lovely food - too long ago to remember exact details now, but thoroughly enjoyed it. It is situated in a weird area of Mossel Bay, but then it is probably just Mossel Bay that is weird. A very strange town to stay in.

Excellent choice! A quiet place with a great view. My 9 year old played in the courtyard with some local kids that were eating there too. The had a blast while we had a quiet meal. Great wine list as well.

I absolutely love this restaurant. The food is amazing, the service is fantastic and the staff makes you feel welcome.

I would definately like to spend another romantic evening at Cafe Gannets.

We stopped here for lunch recently, and found the service poor and the food very ordinary.

There was a large party for whom a buffet spread was laid, which in all fairness looked fabulous, but we were not allowed to have the buffet.

When we questioned why we had to wait for so long, we were given the excuse that the cook had messed up my pasta dish and was cooking it again - penne with salmon ???? We found the staff very patronising too!
