Had a delicious dinner with our family of four. The sushi was amazing & well presented & tasted good. Cajun Calamari was very tender. Ostrich carpaccio had too many pickles. Service was friendly & attentive

Me and my family had an amazing time at Cafe Gannet. The food was out of this world and our waiter, Jared, was very friendly. We would definitely visit the restaurant again!

Give credit when its due, oh and they do deserve it, from the best cocktails and sushi on the deck to an amazing dinner with a beautiful wine with great service and a chef that knows and loves what he's doing - you can taste, sense and feel the passion. We just cant get enough of this place

Buffet breakfast is a treat and everyone is catered for, including Champagne breakfast every day if you like. Every plate coming out of the kitchen is beautifully presented and very tasty. I spent a week at the Protea Hotel and ate most of my meals at Cafe Gannet - I was not disappointed once. Well done Chef !

One of the things that has struck me is that service on the whole is much worse than it was when I was here 11 yeats ago. Cafe Gannet bucks that trend and we got our food quicky without feeling rushed. The menu is a mix of seafood, meat and a separate sushi menu. My Indian fishcake starter an deconstructed... More

Well located very close to Museum. Had lunch outside on a beautiful sunny day. Food was really nice. I only wanted a small amount so ordered a sushi appetizer. It was really tasty. A friend had the Calamari and that was also delicious. Lovely relaxing lunch.

Thank maureend105
