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.

Fantastic food and a wonderful waiter who could not do enough for us. Would definitely recommend it and we will be back on our next visit. Wonderful views of the beach and harbour and a great hotel. I had seafood and it was superbly cooked and my husband had kingklip which was mouth watering.

The food was excellent with good service. It is a quite large restaurant but we arrived early before it got too busy. Great views over the harbour.

It doesn't look much from outside but inside there is an impressive restaurant. We had to sit near the front so missed out on the atmosphere but our waiter Carl was great, really friendly and attentive to our needs. It was the best food we have had in SA so far my husband had the Tuna Steak and said it was excellent. I had grilled sole which was very good. At the end we were a little rushed but all in all an enjoyable experience however it was double the price of anywhere else we have eaten

Great food. Try the ostrich
Food was amazing. We had it recommended from Linkside2 and Petra was right…. What a place.
We had fish and ostrich and loved it. The Don Pedro was the best I have ever had in South Africa. Parking is easy in front of the restaurant. Friendly staff.

Awesome freshly prepared food and service with a smile, clean and neat - well worthwhile ! I first stayed in the adjoining hotel as a business guest and later returned for more with friends and family - ample parking is a definite plus.
