This casual restaurant is right on the water on Mosselbai. The food was fresh and the view was spectacular. We were disappointed that we were there too late for the oysters right from the sea, but my daughter loved them anyway.

Beautifully fresh fish cooked to perfection in this rustic restaurant on the sea front of Mossel Bay. Eat in or out. Take advantage of the courtesy transport provided to get you back to your accommodation.

I almost always visit Sea Gypsy when I'm in Mosselbay. This is my go-to place if I'm craving fried seafood. Don't expect anything fancy. This is a chilled restaurant where you can sit back and relax with friends and family.
