We had the mixed platter with kudu, ostrich and springbok. The kudu was by far the most tasty and tender. The ostrich and springbok was a bit dry unfortunately, so we were a bit dissapointed. The hawaii chicken was good though.

The food is average and reasonably priced. Wine list is limited but better than most in Mossel Bay. As long as you do not expect the fine dining that you are used to in your bigger towns and cities, you will enjoy this restaurant.

Route 57 Restaurant, is a Louis Oosthuizen, the 2010 Open Champion themed Restaurant in Mossel Bay. In 2000, Louis played his lowest round of golf at Mossel Bay Golf Club - a 57 gross (15 under par) - You can see his score card in the lounge area. In life we are always on the road to somewhere and so Route 57 was born. This would not have been possible without the support and input of our family and friends. We want to thank them all for making this possible. The hand of our Heavenly Father is behind us to protect us, below us to carry us, in front of us to lead us and most of all in us to create Route57. We thank Him for what He has blessed us with and bless you for what you are about to enjoy at Route 57.
