The Café Gannet Restaurant is Mossel Bay's seafood House. Acclaimed for local seafood specialties, ingeniously prepared. Coastal oysters, black mussels and Mossel Bay Sole are delivered daily from the harbour to make a delectable and varied a la carte menu, which includes pizza, salads, meat dishes, light lunches and Rainbow Cuisine.

For a relaxing afternoon, come and enjoy a cocktail overlooking the Indian Ocean...

The Cafe Gannet is a great treat, which will please the most discerning palate - very trendy, so bookings are recommended.
