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.

“Best restaurant in Mossel Bay”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

Visited on a number of occasions whilst recently on holiday - great food, reasonably priced, lovely ambiance and brilliant service - my definitive first choice when visiting Mossel Bay. Puts the other chains (especially the likes of SPUR) to shame!

“Cafe Gannet Rocks.........”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

What is there not to like about the Cafe Gannet, from supper friendly staff to gorgeous food. From a soft tender steak, to a hearty bugger and don’t get me started on the Sushi.There is nothing better than too, sit on the deck at the Blue Oster bar and watch an African sunset.

We had the great pleasure to have our wedding at the café gannet, and I can not put in words how awesome everyone has been to help create our special day. It will for ever be one of the best days of my life, and all thanks to Janine and Gareth that made it all happen.

“Beautiful restaurant.Beautiful food. Beautiful views”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

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.
