If you like to surround yourself with beautiful things - then Cafe Gannet is a must. The food was not only beautiful to look at, but tasted even better. F.y.i - the Kinglip Fillet wrapped in Salmon and Phyllo pastry was well worth the drive from Cape Town to Mosselbay.

We had the seafood curry and oxtail. The food was just too delicious. The best we ever had.

Service was also superb!

A great place to have a good cappuccino after a day at the office. If you're staying at the Protea its just a few steps from the rooms so very convenient! Peace n quiet plus great vibe.

To cut a long story short, I noticed on the menu they had a new desert. It was labelled popcorn Sunday. To be honest I was sceptical popcorn and Ice Cream come on ? But I do like Ice Cream and I am always pop to give something a try within reason.

The listing on the menu is deceptive, this desert is something that needs to be on your bucket list if you like Ice Cream. It is a mixture of HOME MADE peanut butter ice-cream and vanilla ice-cream mixed with think chocolate sauce and caramelised popcorn. It is amazing, without a doubt a must for anyone who likes something sweet every now and then.

What makes this so special is that Café Gannet make their own Ice Cream, they really have a winning recipe. I have been so impressed with this desert, nothing else can come close to it. Words can not express this, if you reading this and close to the restaurant you need to go and give it a try. This is so special it is even worth getting in your car and travelling to Mossel Bay just to try this desert.

A local recommended this restaurant as one of the best in Mossel Bay - we weren't disappointed! The stuffed chicken breast was good and the fillet steak was also a hit! The coffee icecream was also very nice.
