Dinner for 2 at Cafe Gannet did not disappoint. Our friendly Watson, Jarryd, was attentive but not intrusive. We both had the seafood casserole. Oh my word, delicious!!! Paired with a beautiful bottle of perfectly chilled Boschkloof sauvignon blanc, a truly memorable eating experience.

Booked for 7.30pm but ladies not ready so had to postpone to 8.00pm by which time the Kingklip and home made tagliatelle had all gone. Having said that we really did enjoy our meals and have booked again for tonight and pre-ordered three dishes.
