As it is an oyster bar, we had to start with oyster. Really very fresh and nicely opened for us. Afterwa4ds a fish combo which was also fresh and prepared the way it should be. The ambience is nice and the view was perfect.

Food was great in the past but sadly so the standards have dropped substantially. Sushi salad arrived without salmon and other listed ingredients and was sent back. Pale and unripe tomatoes were used for the salad. Calamari was tasteless and rubbery, vegetable stir-fry not good,...fried hake was just about OK, Hopefully you can get your act together, until such time we will rather go elsewhereMore

Friends and I attended the MossJazz Festival toward the end of November. We were famished and ended up at the Oyster Bar for lunch as the venue appeared inviting. We were not disappointed. The ambience is amazing and the food and service excellent. I was...surprised at the large portion size of the line fish. Best I've had during my stay and the sushi was great too. The waitron (sadly forgot her name) was extremely knowledgeable, provided excellent service and had an excellent sense of humour when I engaged her in sarky customer banter.More

We live in Mossel Bay, and it is one of our favourite spots. Took friends from out of town late yesterday afternoon, early evening. Worst service we’ve ever had there. Only 2 waiters, unfortunately the new waitress really struggled with the drinks orders. Waited a...long time for the overcooked fish, and the usual tender tempura prawns were overcooked and tough. Huge dissapointment. We love this place. Please get your act together. Holiday season almost upon us. Nelis le Roux 082 414 4109More

To our huge disappointment tonights visit was not up to their normal standard. The incorrect drinks order was brought, the main order was mixed up, we had to ask for a basket for prawn tails, hand wipes, salt and pepper. My calamari was totally overdone...and my husbands salad looked like a prep from nursery school. The manager was not interested in anything at all. Her smoking seemed more important as she was across at Kaai 4. You will need to sharpen up!!! The Season is upon you! Mozambik seems a better option......More

We were there on a beautiful day, it's a great location right on the waterfront overlooking the bay. Nicely decorated and good tableware and friendly efficient service. However we both chose fish of the day, mine with added calamari at R139 and R189 respectivley. (if...my memory is correct). The fish of the day was Gurnard and they were tiny. In Cape Town we can buy 3 or probably 4 of these size for about R50 (R50/kg). I thought they should have served up 2 fish each instead of the 1 each which were probably below the legal minimum size We were still hungry after a bill of R800 which included btw 6 delicious oysters and a bottle of decent wine.More

I certainly do not see why not. There is plenty of space and when we visited there were no small children there because of the type of cuisine on offer. My answer would be a definite yes.
