We loved the atmosphere and food of Cafe Gannet, absolutely superb!! Couldn't believe the sophisticated menu and the complex tastes. Once we tasted the food at Gannet, we went back several times during our stay in Mossel bay.

Excellent choice! A quiet place with a great view. My 9 year old played in the courtyard with some local kids that were eating there too. The had a blast while we had a quiet meal. Great wine list as well.
