Description: The Café Gannet Restaurant is Mossel Bay's seafood House. Acclaimed for local seafood specialties, ingeniously prepared. Coastal oysters, black mussels and Mossel Bay Sole are delivered daily from the harbour to make a delectable and varied a la carte menu, which includes pizza, salads, meat dishes, light lunches and Rainbow Cuisine. For a relaxing afternoon, come and enjoy a cocktail overlooking the Indian Ocean... The Cafe Gannet is a great treat, which will please the most discerning palate - very trendy, so bookings are recommended.

“Burnt Food”
Reviewed 13 April 2017 via mobile

I am very disappointed, my Sole was burnt which I do not expect from a restaurant rated 2de best in the entire Mosselbay!!!!

We were 4 adults and 4 kids and our final bill was about R1900.....

I do not mind spending money on good food, which is way I chose to go to the Gannet, but feel cheated when spending that amount of money and not receiving the same quality in food!

The rest of my family ordered hake a calamari, but the calamari was not much to speak of, such a small portion!!!

If this restaurant wants to maintain its high rating, I would suggest you pull up your socks!!!

Form a traveller that has been visiting Mosselbay for 17 years and this is the first time I have felt compelled to write a review!

“Overpriced and underwhelming”
Reviewed 12 April 2017 via mobile

Smart and well-located, with some interesting appetisers that the main course failed to maintain. Not too bad but nothing special either, but high prices given the pub-style food.

A great spot for a romantic night out. Good food...pricey...but worth trying. Especially if you love good seafood

“Always the best in the western Cape”
Reviewed 12 April 2017

Every thing, from their cocktails to their sushi are beyond delicious. The snail cigars starter is a must, they can make it a main meal! It's definitely the place to be
