Good Food, Staff is friendly, partially improved in Service. We had been sometimes in the bar, but the Service was nötig good, we Must waiting Long, the Tables and chairs outside were dirty. Here you notice that the Personal Management needs to improve, the two employees at the bar overwhelmed.

We can not comment on the food because after waiting for more then an hour and a half all we got was a salad. So we left without receiving the main courses. So there was actually no service!!! They did not even try to offer some sort of compensation for this "nice" experiance.

We were surprised how quickly this restaurant filled up after 7pm and were pleased we had reserved a table. Our mains of prawns and yellowtail were really fresh and tasty and the service was prompt and friendly. Good value.

We went there as it was suggested tonus by the airbnb we stayed and also because it is one of the best place rated on trip. This place is a huge "cantine" overcrowded. We had a bottle of wine, a focaccia and two fish dish for mains. Mine was huge and tasteless, enough food for two people at least. Really... More

I visited Cafe Gannet again for a business lunch and was so impressed with the sushi. This is not my first visit and they NEVER disappoint. I would recommend a visit any time of the year. Cant wait for my next trip to Mossel Bay.

If you feel like seafood tonight, I would recommend Cafe Gannet in Mossel Bay. Lovely ambience, professional waiters and excellent food.

The person who cooked my grilled kingclip tonight should be immediately sacked, or better don´t sack the cook, sack the chef! The fish was totally dry and overcooked. It had been in the pan waiting for far to long. And what should have been a lemon butter sauce was melted butter with a dash of lemon. The only thing good... More

The Cafe Gannet does not look exciting from the inside but the staff is superfriendly and we had the best sushi since ages. Freshly made and very tasty we would have loved to order a second round but our tummies were too full. We can recommend this place fully for Sushilovers.
