We used Trip Advisor to find a place for lunch on our trip along the Garden Route. Not much choce in Mossel Bay, but we found the Blue Oyster (tucked away behind the Cafe Gannet and it was excellent. We had the Suchi which was...fresh and delicious. Lovely to be able to look out over the bay too.More

We had the pleasure to have Cocktails at the Blue Oyster bar during our stay at the Marriot Protea hotel on four occasions. The Blue Oyster bar boasted an inside seating area as well as a lovely deck outside with beautiful views of the ocean,...Santos beach and the harbour. The ambience is relaxing, intimate and sophisticated. Our waiters, Litha and Simba were very friendly and professional. The cocktails and mocktails were among the best we ever had. We had a Focaccia, a Burger, Salmon sashimi, 4x4 Sushi, lite Hake, Red dragon Sushi, grilled Chicken salad and a Lemon cheesecake. Each dish was a feast for the eye and sent our taste buds into a passionate Tango. (The food was ordered at the bar from The Gannet Café and Restaurant across the Blue Oyster bar). We thoroughly enjoyed the stunning sunsets from the deck.More

Me and my partner come here a lot because we love the service, atmosphere and food. We have never been let down yet! The cocktails are amazing and the bar tenders are always happy and smiley. The view of the ocean is beautiful and even...mid week the bar can get fairly busy. Would definealty recommend this as a place to come if you are in Mossel bay, whether you just come for pre dinner drinks or for a bite to eat as well this is one place you wont want to miss!More

This place has great location, what a view over the harbour & the bay. Cocktail menu a bit limited but still good.

The views are really beautiful. This bar is at the back of the Gannet restaurant and Protea Hotel. We sat at one of the outdoor tables. A menu was brought to the table but nobody came to take our order. We ended up moving to...the Gannet.More

Dear reginafug Thank you so much for your visit. We apologize for the service confusion. The bar is a much more casual and relaxed setting than the restaurant. As part of this, orders for food and drinks get placed with the staff at the bar...More

I went for the “Blue Oyster Bar” and it’s cocktails at about 6pm. I had three very nice Margaritas and a bar snack. I was able to sit outside and enjoy these. Although they don’t do table service outside (this is a problem when your...on your own) the staff went out of their way to ensure I had somewhere to sit and enjoy my drinks and snack.More

If you're looking for a bar to hydrate and get away from the sandy beaches, then the Blue Oyster Bar is a good spot. As part of the Protea Hotel, it overlooks the ocean, but is a good over-18 hangout for those needing a reprieve...from the holiday crowds.More

The garter, bouquet, guests helped...themselves to outfits. We cut the cake! We had cocktails! EVERYBODY JUST LOVED IT!!! There is no better place to have a party in the whole of South Africa!
