Description: From farm to fork, the Mussel Monger & Oyster Bar’s ethos is to work directly with our sustainable sources, based within the rich waters of the Saldanha Bay. We offer two of the worlds most sustainable seafoods and most importantly, we handle them correctly by housing our produce within our custom built sea water tanks flushed with water from Saldanha. We honestly believe that we serve the best Oysters & Mussels in South Africa and we're aiming on becoming the number 1 supplier of this incredible product to the retail market.

I ate at the Mussel Monger inside Mojo Market. The oysters were huge and delicious. The offered several wine options to be taken with the oysters, which was convenient so I didnt need to go to the general bar inside the market. Great value!

It is more than a kiosk where you get the largest and most tasteful shucked oysters at a very reasonable price. You can eat it at the counter or at any of the other tables shared by other kiosks.Once you have enjoyed the oysters with a class of Champagne do go ahead and order the mussel pot. It is well prepared and served with two small "vetkoekies to dip in the lovely sauce.. VERY nice.

Smacks of the sea! Oysters are fresh out of the seawater tanks next to you, not much more needs saying other than you only need the large not the giant ones.
Had the west coast ( Saldana Bay) mussels in a leek, onions, garlic celery and cold pressed olive oil, white wine and reduced cream. My wife who loves mussels said this was the best. Mussel dish she ever had... along with a glass of bubbly and or the Haute Cabriere Chardonnay/Pinot Noir was just fantastic. Get there early and you can sit at their counter top and eat and watch them shuck the oysters. Good friendly service too!
