I'm a little puzzled to have read the review from the guy a week ago who seemingly was just having a bad day/life and took it out on The Blue Goose. I am a volunteer at International Marine Volunteers and we all came for dinner...More

Situated in a 100 year old limestone fisherman's cottage, the owner and staff welcomes guests into a warm and cosy environment, serving freshly prepared dishes, using fresh, local and sustainable produce. It's like having dinner with friends, the way it's done in the Strandveld.
