We had the pleasure to have lunch at Fynbos Gourmet restaurant during our stay in Mossel bay. I thoroughly enjoyed the high-quality homeware on display throughout the restaurant. We bought a bottle of wine at the liquor store next door and we paid a ZAR15.00...corkage fee. We had a Greek salad to share as a starter. It was fresh and delicious. My son and I had the Bobotie. It was the best bobotie we ever had. The yellow rice it was served with was also excellent. My husband had the Tomato stew with rice and vegetables. He also declared his meal as excellent. Our waitress, Junay was very friendly and professional. The Chef’s passion and talent was evident is every blissful bite. Expect honest food made with love and care at Fynbos Gourmet restaurant.More

We went to Fynbos for carrot cake take-aways and waited over 30 minutes. Nobody assisted us and we had to ask multiple times for a card machine. The cake was defnitely not worth the wait. We’ll never be going there again.

Worth a visit, the gift shop is an added bonus! Not a wide variety on the menu but something for every taste. Originally went for breakfast but decided to have something sweet rather after seeing the cake display. 😁 Due to the nature of the...gift shop, no children under 10 allowedMore

Visited for coffee & carrot cake, and to our surprise discovered in addition to an attractive eatery the place also had an absolutely perfectly peaceful little outside sundeck under the shade of a massive old tree to relax. The carrot cake was deliciously moist and...tasty & tasted home made. Seems we finally found our new favourite place to enjoy confectioneries, we'll definitely be back.More

Ranters gripe children under 10 aren’t “welcomed” / accommodated. It’s the very reason why I enjoy my time and experience @ Fynbos - its whining (& noisy) children free. Parents are notified up front, not once they’re seated about the “ruling”. If parents (generally) parented...correctly with consideration towards “others”, Oupa wouldn’t be typing this. At family eateries, Oupa knows up front it’s rowdy. And Oupa enjoy that too. Oh, and my ongoing pleasant culinary experiences lure me back time and again.More

Fynbos is open from 08:00 until 15:00. Limited menu but food well prepared. No children allowed. Lovely venue for peace and quiet experience. Large area with household goods and trinkets on display.

To escape the rain we called in for coffee and cake. We were greeted and taken to a table and ordered coffee which was delicious and l had lemon meringue which was the best l have ever tasted. My husbands scone and cream was equally...good and once finished we looked around the lovely quirky gift shop. All in all a good place to visit.More
