Restaurant served heartwarming homely food. Menu was amazing. Waiters were on point and attentive. Establishment was clean. Great for families and solos. The best was the great food accompanied by soothing tunes in the background. Perfect combination on a cold winters night.

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.

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.
