The layout if the restaurant allows for grouping of guests. Smaller children together etc. The porkbelly is excellent. The steak was average and the vegetables need some attention. All in all a good experience.

Very good food from an interesting and creative menu. Service was not up to the standard of the restaurant, possible derailed by boisterous table of 8+ seated near-by but who arrived well after we did.

Route 57 Restaurant, is a Louis Oosthuizen, the 2010 Open Champion themed Restaurant in Mossel Bay. In 2000, Louis played his lowest round of golf at Mossel Bay Golf Club - a 57 gross (15 under par) - You can see his score card in the lounge area. In life we are always on the road to somewhere and so Route 57 was born. This would not have been possible without the support and input of our family and friends. We want to thank them all for making this possible. The hand of our Heavenly Father is behind us to protect us, below us to carry us, in front of us to lead us and most of all in us to create Route57. We thank Him for what He has blessed us with and bless you for what you are about to enjoy at Route 57.
