“Little pricey but good food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago

One of the things that has struck me is that service on the whole is much worse than it was when I was here 11 yeats ago. Cafe Gannet bucks that trend and we got our food quicky without feeling rushed.The menu is a mix of seafood, meat and a separate sushi menu. My Indian fishcake starter an deconstructed apple crumble were very good, my burger was OK at best. The patty looked bought in and was overcooked. My wife's kingklip parcels main was excellent and huge.By UK standards it was good value but 10-20% more expensive than other SA restaurants

“Great eating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Well located very close to Museum. Had lunch outside on a beautiful sunny day. Food was really nice. I only wanted a small amount so ordered a sushi appetizer. It was really tasty. A friend had the Calamari and that was also delicious. Lovely relaxing lunch.

“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!
