“A little gem in Gansbaai”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

At the Blue Goose we found good food, well-presented, and accompanied by wines from the area. Great service and a cozy fire-place on a cold, rainy evening made it an evening to remember.

“Blown away!!wow!!”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

It was a wonderful experience from the moment we stepped into this little gem of old and new combined till it was time to say good-bye!! The service was excellent, the fireplace brings that extra bit of ambiance and then the food!!!! The burgers are made by the chef and are by far the bestest, juiciest, delicious patty I have ever tasted melting away in my mouth. But then the most fabulous caramel cheese cake made it to our table and it was the perfect amount of sweet, just the right with a cup of Peacock coffee to seal the deal. Magnificent!!!

Excellent menu. All our food choices were great. Service was brilliant although only one waitress who served all the tables. Good interaction with fellow diners. Cosy.

“Top 5 meals from 3 weeks in South Africa”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

This place is an old stone fishing cottage that has been redone into a restaurant. Pick the room with the fire place for the most ambiance.

The food was spectacular. The calamari, chicken liver peri peri, line fish, and the desserts were all extremely delicious and very well presented. Why this is number 4 is beyond me as this is an amazing place that is very reasonably priced.

Do yourself a favor and head over to the Blue Goose if you're in Gansbaai.
