I visited Cafe Gannet again for a business lunch and was so impressed with the sushi. This is not my first visit and they NEVER disappoint. I would recommend a visit any time of the year. Cant wait for my next trip to Mossel Bay.

The person who cooked my grilled kingclip tonight should be immediately sacked, or better don´t sack the cook, sack the chef! The fish was totally dry and overcooked. It had been in the pan waiting for far to long. And what should have been a lemon butter sauce was melted butter with a dash of lemon. The only thing good... More

The Cafe Gannet does not look exciting from the inside but the staff is superfriendly and we had the best sushi since ages. Freshly made and very tasty we would have loved to order a second round but our tummies were too full. We can recommend this place fully for Sushilovers.

The restaurant was recommended by the lady running our accommodation and we decided to have a look at the place and menu whilst we were in Mossel Bay. The menu was suitably varied to cover for most tastes and in particular the fish options were why we booked a table. I choose options of the Sushi menu whilst my partner... More

If I make a reservation two days in advance and offered the table next to the door despite of the fact that the restaurant is almost empty I do not feel as a welcomed customer. The quality of the food was... More

Cafe Gannet is always a pleasure to visit and maintain high standards throughout...from food, service to venue and quality. Professional with bookings and all arrangements for any special occasion. Their variety and quality of dishes never disappoint and is most certainly a place the whole family can enjoy. Thank you Cafe Gannet for bringing class and quality to Mossel Bay!... More

We had seafood at this restaurant and it was very good. The casserole was a big positive surprice and the seafood platter was great. The only negative was that the service was a bit slow after a while and it was a bit noisy.
