“Burnt Food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago 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”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago 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”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

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
