The food was really good but the service was not excellent. Our waitress seemed to forget our orders and we had to remind her a couple of times.. aside from that I loved the food and the selection they had: quite fancy!

As promised we made a return visit to this absolutely exquisite restaurant. We both had the duck breast with Cranbury sauce. It was absolutely devine. We have had duck in numerous places even in Paris & our meal can hold it's own without a shadow of a doubt. The millionaires chocolate cake was AWESOME. The wine list is still extensive... More

Food we had there was very good, service was ok. They tried but it was a bit hit and miss. I'd definitely go there again, though. Book in advance (ask in your lodge if they can do it for you).

Being Valentine's Evening, the restaurant was fully booked and the atmosphere was relaxed and romantic with candle-lit tables and a chocolate gift. The cob was grilled to perfection, and the duck breast with cranberry sauce very tasty. Hundred percent for presentation. We will gladly recommend this delightful little Goose

We had the lamb shank and a seafood espetada - they were tasty and well-cooked...really delicious and highly recommended. The waiter was friendly, fun and efficient and we had a good time. Thanks for a lovely evening! The venue is beautiful and really great to have lots of space between the tables. The front room/enclosed deck area was a lovely... More

We were recommended this restaurant and we were happy we went. We had a warm welcome and our waiter Adam could not do enough for us. The food was excellent and the local wine he recommended was fantastic. We ended up going to the Strandvelt winery and did a wine tasting. Ordered a few boxes of wine, which can be... More

I have to say from the outside it looked like any ordinary small town eatery. But this restaurant makes up for it with the food it serves inside. I eat out many times back home through my job, lamb is my favourite. Tonight was the best I have had in any other place. My partner was of the same opinion... More

My husband and I had been cycling and decided to stop for lunch in Gansbaai and looked up tripadvisor recommendations. We found the Blue Goose and dressed in Lycra were warmly welcomed! The immediate attention of our waiter was good. Drinks brought very quickly. We saw the recommendation for the Mozambique prawns and so took the plunge. Wow they were... More

A lovely restaurant with some beautiful seafood. I had the Mozambique prawns and talked about them for weeks after they were so good! - Highly recommend.
