“A good set menu ”
Reviewed 17 March 2017 via mobile

We visited here as part of our Garden Route tour and we're provided with a set menu, which I was very impressed with. I started with a Chef's Seasonal Salad that was fresh and tasty, followed by a 250g fillet steak and chips with a lovely butter and cheese sauce. The steak was a little overcooked, but was very tender and the cheese sauce was superb. My dessert was an apple and caramel crumble with ice cream, that again was very nice. I would go here again.

“An oasis in a foodie desert!”
Reviewed 13 March 2017

Attractive decor, friendly and efficient staff, an interesting menu.
Our sole was perfectly cooked, falling off the bone. It was served with stir fried julienne of vegetables in a sauce which complimented the delicate fish.
The wine list was varied and the prices reasonable.

“The Cafe Gannet”
Reviewed 10 March 2017

We were all very impressed with the Restaurant and surprised when we asked the Waiter if we could share a curry (my husband and I) and he said he would ask. Normally you get a outright NO, but we were presented with 1/2 portions each, which we very much enjoyed. The gentleman who served us was also very helpful and very nice. We will definitely visit again when we are next in Mossel Bay. Thanks for a very nice lunch. We will definitely recommend your Restaurant.
