What a great location for fish and chips. The building looks a bit tatty and run down but that adds to its charm and the setting is perfect. The food was wonderful, great portion sizes and so fresh. The service was very efficient and there were many locals using the restaurant when we were there which was nice. The location... More

This place has a real laid back feel to go with it's position on the sea front but don't be fooled, the food is surprisingly good. This was the first time I have eaten peri peri chicken livers and they were delicious. Good service, good food, good drinks and good fun!

Going for a small breakfast we found this restaurant in the harbour as we wanted to watch over the bay, so not a view to miss out on!! Much bigger inside than appearance from outside. We ordered the basic breakfast which was fine. The rest of the menu looked impressive as well as checking the other patrons meals which they... More

Some very lovely seafood, fresh, generously served and perfectly cooked calamari and fish. The creamy mussels is also a must for a starter!

We were looking for something informal with a good view in Mosselbay. The Sea Gypsy is located in the harbour with breath taking views of the ocean. Seafood selection is great and worth the money.

Description
The Sea Gypsy Cafe is one of the most unique places that you will ever visit. We are situated on the water our oysters are hanging from a pole alive in the sea. We offer a warm friendly and welcoming experience. Great food good value. We offer not only seafood but also meats, chicken, vegetarian meals as well as burgers, toasties and pastas. Takeaways can be placed over the phone and delivered by delivery extreme. A shuttle service is also available if required at no extra cost to and from the shop.

Come and join us we are people that care. Hope to see you soon.

Kind regards Colin and Team.
