Me and my boyfriend went there while we were quite hungry. The food was okay and we finished most of it. It was a bit too oily for our taste and the prawns tasted a bit old.

The owners of this restaurant should be ashamed for the quality food that they serve. This restaurant should not even be listed on Tripadvisor. Do not waste your time or money to visit this “so called” horror restaurant. It is a shame that you rip...people off with the food that you are serving. The restaurant is extremely dirty and the waiters aren’t that much cleaner. Hygiene are definitely their last priority. They serve food that you won’t even serve to your dog. The crumbed mushroom is something between a wet nicker ball and a bottle of overused vegetable oil, served on cabbage. No prawn or calamari deserved to die for the tastelessness that this restaurant is serving. Personally I feel that you should close your doors, go for training and serve food that is on standard. I am definitely calling the health inspector.More

We had a light lunch here. The meals including cooked vegetable were not so good. However their grilled hake was very delicious. The staff was friendly. Covid-19 site access protocols were adhered to. Lastly, the location is good.

A great restaurant with friendly staff, delicious food and a beautiful view of the bay at Santos beach. There is a good variety of food and the meals are excellent. We went back for a second night and were as happy with our food. I...definitely recommend this harbour café.More

Sea Gypsy is an authentic, unfussy restaurant serving simple but excellent fish. Venue chosen for the wake for a family member. Management were great hosts. Staff helpful and kind. Favourite venue whenever in Mossel Bay
