Went for lunch with the family. We all had the Fish-O-Mari Combo (Hake and Calamari). Decent helping and very tasty. Perfectly done fish. Good value for money. The tables were a little sticky though...

I ate there twice over the weekend and it was just fantastic. The food, the service the whole ambiance. Of all the excellent restaurants in Mossel Bay this one came out tops!

A real quirky place down by the beach. We wanted a quick lunch and both had fried fish in a basket. The fish was fine but the chips very disappointing, undercooked, uncoloured and very soggy. You can leave your 'mark' with a marker pen as have many others which is a quirky touch. Shame that the chips prevented 5 stars... More

Excellent views, great (fresh) food and a relaxing atmosphere makes this place one of our favorites in Mossel Bay and certainly close to the best, if not the best seafood restaurant in Mossel Bay.

Great informal atmosphere welcomes you on entering. Here you come to relax and enjoy yourself with good food and no pretences. Oyster are kept alive by hanging them in the sea wich keep them alive and fresh the natural way and not keeping them in a holding cabinet drizzling seawater over them. Friendly staff also a bunus

Description
The Sea Gypsy Cafe is one of the most unique places that you will ever visit. We are situated on the water our oysters are hanging from a pole alive in the sea. We offer a warm friendly and welcoming experience. Great food good value. We offer not only seafood but also meats, chicken, vegetarian meals as well as burgers, toasties and pastas. Takeaways can be placed over the phone and delivered by delivery extreme. A shuttle service is also available if required at no extra cost to and from the shop.

Come and join us we are people that care. Hope to see you soon.

Kind regards Colin and Team.
