Someone who spends a lot of time in Mossel Bay told us about this place, which we hadn't found in any of the guidebooks. Having gone in winter, the town seemed pretty quiet and we weren't expecting much. But when we opened the door and went in we found a very comfortable, well-appointed restaurant with an excellent menu, including Mossel Bay sole. The service was excellent.

This place was recommended by the people we were staying with

What a great place

Food and service was. Impeccable , and the view worth the visit

Only down side was some of the rooms were being renovated, so a bit noisy and dusty, but ignoring that well worth a visit

A while ago I organized my mother's 50th birthday party at The Cafe Gannet, and it was absolutely perfect! I asked for some savory and sweet treats, and I was not disappointed! We had the most delicious sandwiches, choc chip scones with cream, chocolate dipped strawberries and decadent chocolate brownies! A must try for everybody!

The tables were plain, but beautiful and we were served coffee and tea regularly by the friendly staff. I would recommend Cafe Gannet without hesitation to anybody who needs a place to hold a function, you will NOT be disappointed!

Thank you so much to Janine from Cafe Gannet for her help and kindness. You made the party unforgettable!
