We had lunch here.  It was quite busy with two tour groups but the sushi was delicious.  I had the rainbow roll which was very fresh and tasty.  There is also outdoor seating overlooking the bay.

Like the Portuguese sailors of old we stopped in Mossel Bay for food and drink. Cafe Gannet may not have been open for them but, as a chance find for us, it made for a lovely lunch stop with splendid views over the bay. Food...More
