This was a great experience. Toes in the sand, picnic tables galore and the smell of grilled seafood in the air. The food was exceptional. Very fresh, in abundance. The price of R250 p.p. is well worth it. Word of caution, do not indulge in...More

Not worth a visit. Price is too high for the below average food. Food supply was not sufficient. (Not fully booked). No service by waiters. Promised more of the snoek and nothing showed up.

De Vette Mossel (The Fat Mussel) offers much more than perfectly prepared seafood – this is an experience – in unusual and informal surroundings with traditional Cape fishing culture – in true West Coast Style.
