Great quality food, but overpriced. The portion size though of starters can increase in size for what you pay. The wine selection definitely needs attention, can improve selection that will accompany food. We might be on holiday & have understanding that it is silly season,...More

Good food and excellent service.We just stopped over for a light lunch on our way to Knysna and were lucky to get a table. Besides the tourist there were a lot of locals, always a good sign.

If I hadn't found Cafe Gannet I would have starved. The food in the rest of the place is awful: greasy, full of starch but seems to please a lot of people. Cafe Gannet has outstanding food and wine. Highly recommendable.

We had a little waiting time during our stay, but really enjoyed it! You have to try the casserole or some prawns. Really good and fresh fish. Pizza is okay but not awesome... Jared was really friendly and explained us a lot about the food...More

This is a great spot if you're looking for a nice dinner out. Our food was delicious! Waiters are friendly and efficient, and the restaurant has a beautiful outside seating area. We loved the menu and would definitely return if we were in the area...More

Excellent seafood in great location. Busy so service was a little slow at times. Linked to bar on cliffside wehere prices high but views magnificant. Link rather odd though as you have to settle your bar bill before moving into the dining area.
