Local cuisine, African, Barbecue
Two huge wooden beams welcome you to the beginning of a great experience with delicious dishes made on an open fire inside this incredible seaside venue. Kaai 4 Braai Restaurant is an informal place where all can enjoy great South African meat-dishes in great company around our huge fire place. Whether you are young or old, Kaai 4 Braai Restaurant has a dish for every tastebud. Spitbraas, braaivleis, various potjiekos dishes, freshly baked breads daily, whole fish on the grid, there is something for everyone to enjoy! So come and relax on our very own little “peninsula”, grab a drink, let your toes play in the sand and listen to the relaxing sound of the waves crashing against the harbour wall.

It’s just something we wanted to experience though being tourists. The braai is based on the seafront so we ordered a bbqed fish dish and a chicken based one. They came with a flatbread and was delicious and flavoursome. Accompanied by a beer it was...a nod to the braai and an enjoyable experience.More

As a beautifully situated restaurant, the expectation was high. The ‘feet in the sand’ experience was great, but one of the members in the group suffers from Parkinsons as struggles to walk. If the restaurant then has no menus going to the tables….the old guy...had to get up and walk to the menu board at the entrance….the distance becoming a problem. Then an elderly lady needed the loo….that was in a tow away toilet at the other side of the parking lot….with a step so high she could not get in. I was expecting a great fish menu….only one of the 22 items on the menu was a fish dish?????More

This is a nice lay back braai/barbeque, good fun time with good food, friends and family. The food is good and the people are very friendly and social. Very nice informal atmosphere and just nice all over to visit.

Nope,nope ,nope ! Someone tried to clean it up and in the process destroyed it's soal. Sean and Santi always made us feel like we came home. Even the food tasted bland. Just not the same and more. Will give it a pass next time.

For a casual visit with your feet in the sand and roosterkoek that is prepared on open fire outside, with a view of the harbour and the ocean all in one spot.

Great place to visit and you have to go there but avoid the mosselpot. It has a sour taste and i dont know why they will do this. Ordered this pot because of all the grear reviews it got but it was terrible! Taste differs...and mine does not like sour mossels! Rest of the place is very cool!! Will go again but eat something else.More

The setting is really nice. I had a mossel pot. Somehow the sauce tasted like béchamel and not the creamy white wine sauce I expected. Maybe the other dishes are better

When we drove into Mosselbay yesterday afternoon, we both said how awesome would it be to have a braai and we never thought we would experience a braai in Mosselbay. We decided to take a detour on our way back to the Hotel and ended...up on the harbor side and discovered a hole new scene in Mosselbay and to our surprise saw Kaai 4 Braai.... the braai we so wanted. We walked in and were met by the owner and beach sand, so not what we expected. The casual chat and introduction by the the owner about the ordering and the menu next to the big open fire with the blue sea as the backdrop to the scene was so surreal. The food arrived at our table in enamel plates and bowls, simple and yet so effective, but the perfect vesel for the tasteful, cooked with love and passion from the heart meal. What a pleasant surprise. Excellent.More
