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!

Hi, we have dinner booked to celebrate a friend's birthday but just found out she's not a huge fan of seafood unfortunately. Is there alternatives on the menu? I can't find the menu online. Thanks
