Restaurants in Gansbaai

List View | Map View

South African hospitality goes hand in hand with our passion for cooking and eating. In Gansbaai we aim to please with our delectable traditional cuisine and invite you to explore the world of mouth-watering tastes and smells. Let’s go grab a bite.

As you enter the town you can smell delicious smells of the kitchens hard at work. None more so than that of our selection of coffee shops to cater for the scores of day visitors. Scattered all over town you can choose to have a sea view or enjoy a cup of tea in a lush garden. The mostly small and cosy shops have menus that cover all types of hot and cold drinks and light meals . . . and not to forget home-baked treats for those with a taste for sweet things.

If you have a taste for something fresh and salty, try some of our local restaurants around town. Enjoy a delicious meal in the centre of town or close to the harbour with a grand view of the harbour and Walker Bay that lies beyond. Choose from a full menu of prime meats, creamy pastas, saucy burgers and freshly caught fish. Just ask for the Catch of the Day and you’ll taste the bounty of this natural wonderland. Each restaurant has its own speciality whether it is pizza, meats or savoury dishes and you’re welcome to try them all. 

The family orientated restaurants make you feel at home, rather than at a stranger’s place. They prefer to keep things fresh and only use home-made recipes passed down from the previous generations. Where some are more intimate and classy, others prefer a homier feel with big open plan areas and gardens for the kids to play. Some restaurants even have an open kitchen that allows you to watch the chef cooking up a storm.

Taking a scenic drive along the coast will bring you to the highest ranked restaurants in Gansbaai. These classy and intimately set venues deliver quality food with quality service. The hosts are pleasant and always available for a chat or a quick question. The food is served hot and best followed by something sweet to end off a perfect evening. The ambience is bound to get you coming back for more.

For those in the fast lane, you can order a meal to go or try our own South African version of the All-American diner. Your trusted and new favourite meals can be enjoyed inside the restaurant with its comfy chairs or on the way to your next exciting adventure. The staff is always friendly and happy to explain the latest specials on offer

Just before you head down to Kleinbaai to embark on one of the scariest and thrilling experiences of your life, remember to grab a bite to eat. The spacious interiors and rustic feel will truly welcome you to Africa and get you in the mood to take on the deep blue unknown.

Guests are always pleasantly impressed by our perfected mixture of sweet, savoury and spicy here in our town of Gansbaai. Freshly caught fish from our bountiful oceans and truly traditional South African dishes are brought right to your table. And accompanied by great service, heart-warming smiling faces and spectacular surroundings, you cannot ask for more.
