Description: The Sea Gypsy Cafe is one of the most unique places that you will ever visit. We are situated on the water our oysters are hanging from a pole alive in the sea. We offer a warm friendly and welcoming experience. Great food good value. We offer not only seafood but also meats, chicken, vegetarian meals as well as burgers, toasties and pastas. Takeaways can be placed over the phone and delivered by delivery extreme. A shuttle service is also available if required at no extra cost to and from the shop. Come and join us we are people that care. Hope to see you soon. Kind regards Colin and Team.

Friday the 5th of October took our Gauteng visitors to our beloved Sea Gypsy of many years!! What a disappointment! Our guest ordered 4 prawn with her fish.....they were brown and disgusting! Manager had new ones delivered...took 15 minutes but was perfect! Then our meat baskets arrived..... brown, double baked, dry and should never have been served! Again,....manager took price of 1 basket off but we left feeling it was not worth the effort. The quality of food served did nothing for their reputation! I would advise anyone going there to immediately send food of that quality back and not even try and eat it as our hungry kids did!!

We came to Sea Gypsy on friends recommendation and they were spot on. We loved our time there. Firstly, its located next to the harbour and right up against the bay. Secondly, the food was amazing (we had the hake and the calamari burger). Thirdly, the staff were friendly and helpful.

Sea gypsy has a great local vibe and great food to back as well

This was a very nice restaurant with a very beautiful view on the sea. They have a smokers and non smokers side where you can eat and you can eat outside. The food is okay. I didn't really like the malva cake dessert i ordered. The icecream tasted a bit weird. Other than that it's a good restaurant where you can order all kinds of food.

On our only night spent in Mossel Bay we decided to have dinner at Sea Gypsy! What a great idea! Dinner was delicious, the Combo plate was awesome, we couldn"t wish for more. Maybe some more lights inside cause we needed the phone lights to read the menu and some heat. Other than that it was a good night!
