We always seem to arrive in Mossel Bay at lunchtime and like to visit Cafe Gannet. It is always quite breezy there but still lovely to sit outside. We both had calamari, mine plain, my husband's spicy and both dishes were freshly prepared and very tasty. The iced coffee shake is particularly good so I can recommend that. Service this... More

They really offer a large selection of dishes. The food is quite good. This is a great place for lunch or dinner and the locals seem to appreciate it.

We loved the food - sushi for starters, and the seared salmon & tuna main was fantastic. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu, and the ambience of the restaurant was relaxed and low-key. Tables set well apart, creating a sense of privacy

We went to Cafe Gannet for dinner on our second night in Mossel Bay. We made a reservation for four, just to be sure we get a table. The portions are big and the food is amazing! The service was also really great. Make sure to leave a place for dessert... you won't regret!!

My wife and I had a fabulous meal, sea food and fish dishes were absolutely excellent, would not have bothered with puddings in hindsight. Good wine list and service was polite and efficient. Slightly on the expensive side but very good quality.
