Everything about De Vette Mossel is lovely, the decor, view, owners, food. Such great value for money! A five course meal with mussels, divine fresh brread, seafood pot, koeksisters.

Located on the side of the Klein Rivier Vlei, the restaurant offers extremely casual buffet dining with beautiful views. Tables and benches are set up in a marquee on the beach and the meals are prepared on an open fire. The eat-as-much-as-you-like menu offers a...selection of seafood dishes, a meat dish and traditional South African dessert. The starter, comprising two mussel dishes served with warm potbrood, was delicious and I was hard pressed not to eat too much of the starter. The mussel starter was followed by snoek, and then two potjiekos dishes - one seafood pot made with fish, calamari and prawns, and the other meat dish made with beef and venison (Kudu). For dessert, fresh watermelon and koeksisters was served with coffee. Because dishes are served sequentially, one does need to allow a significant amount of time to sample each dish. If, like my wife, you are not a seafood lover, you might not enjoy this experience. The meat potjie was only served more than a hour after the starter had been served and by then my wife was extremely hungry. The restaurant might consider serving the meat dish together with the snoek in order to cater for those guests that are not seafood lovers.More

No airs or graces. What you see is what you get and believe me when I say it is the best of the best. The venue is rustic which adds to the whole experience of indoor/outdoor dining. The hosts and the staff were ever so...helpful and managed to put a smile on everyone's faces. As for value for money, you would not get what is on offer here, anywhere else. Beste see kos in die Overberg.More

It was our second time - and once again it was fantastic! Food is great - will never be able to braai a snoek like that! Love the laid-back atmosphere and down to earth feel. Everything’s topped by the owners sense of humour. Highly recommended!!

Great Atmosphere and location. Snoek was very nice prepared and great host. Rest of the food average. Prawns was not cleaned and not the best dish for sure.
