Very relaxing. We always enjoy good food at this venue. The children can play on the grass next to the marque. The view is good. Company is good. Food is good. The Kingklip parcel that my wife had looks and taste divine. Can really recommend this venue!!!!

The Restaurant was less than half full when we visited (on a Sunday). Thus the service was prompt and nice. The fish dish was great, the salmon pasta however had way to much cream for our taste. Overall still a very nice experience (plus it has decent WiFi).

This is an upmarket, stylish restaurant. I enjoyed the setting and would not describe our experience as negative at all. We had a lovely evening. I have to mention though that the calamari my husband ordered tasted of old cooking oil. The fish was beautifully done and well-presented, but it also had a slight taste of old cooking oil. Our...

We had a very good meal here, great service and good value. We sat inside as it was cool but the terrace looked good for al fresco dining.

What a great restaurant. Whats better than enjoying a glass of wine with an ocean view. The service was fantastic and the food delicious. We had the seafood pizza and kingklip parcel, both meals were top class. This is an absolute must if you are in the area and want to treat yourself to a good meal.

Dear007dd007 Thanks for taking your time to review us on tripadvisor. We are glad you enjoyed the service at our beautiful restuarant. Would have been nice to let us know which curry you did not enjoy, seafood, lamb or vegetable curry. We hope to see you again. The Cafe Gannet Restuarant More

Maybe we caught them on a bad night but service was very slow even though when we arrived the restaurant was less than half full. Long waits for drinks and nearly 40 minutes between starters and mains. However, the food was excellent, and of course the location is great.

Never had a bad meal here - and I have been going to this place for a few years. The sushi menu is extensive, and the fish is always fresh. Well done!

Ate at Cafe Gannet two nights on the trot and both meals where outstanding. Different. Extremely flavoursome. Would recommend anyone in Mossel Bay to go there. Brilliant. Lovely venue.
