We normally do not enjoy restaurants at a hotel but from the moment we made our reservation until we left we were impressed. The service was good for a full restaurant .the staff friendly and the food great. The portion are big but well presented and tasty. The wine list covered a wide range and could enjoy a good wine...

Had two meals at Cafe Gannett, Dinner and Breakfast . Dinner was fine and service very GOOD, the only complaint we both had was we had bones in our Hake Fillet! It was good but don't like fish bones. The breakfast was buffet style and help yourself with different options price wise. Typical buffet breakfast nothing too exciting.

We had a butternut soup as a starter with my wife having the duck and I had the cajun kingklip. The service was excellent with the waiter paying attention to all our needs. The food was presented with flair and the taste was amazing.

We called in for lunch. The day we went pizzas were on offer only 70 ZA for any pizza from the menu - worth asking! The seafood pizza was fab (normally 130 ZAR) piled with fish n seafood delicious. Very relaxing venue but don't go if you are in a rush. Pizzas took over 40 mins to arrive. Will return.

We visited here as part of our Garden Route tour and we're provided with a set menu, which I was very impressed with. I started with a Chef's Seasonal Salad that was fresh and tasty, followed by a 250g fillet steak and chips with a lovely butter and cheese sauce. The steak was a little overcooked, but was very tender... More

Tried ostrich at this restaurant. It was extremely tasty. The service was excellent and we waited so long for a cab the waiter took us home in his car.

Attractive decor, friendly and efficient staff, an interesting menu. Our sole was perfectly cooked, falling off the bone. It was served with stir fried julienne of vegetables in a sauce which complimented the delicate fish. The wine list was varied and the prices reasonable.
