In December 2004, owner Niel du Bois followed his heart, gave his creative spirit free reins, took the plunge and did what many people only dream about – opening an open air restaurant literally on a beach. Where the best seafood is prepared and enjoyed in Spartan surroundings – just like on the West Coast. The first De Vette Mossel Beach Seafood Restaurant was born. On an isolated and pristine beach at Groot Brak River near Mossel Bay. Thanks to the continuous support by our newly found Mossel friends, De Vette Mossel grew and grew. At De Vette Mossel your hosts are local Hermanus residents, Gustave and Charne du Bois. They grew up with De Vette Mossel and love the sea and all it has to offer, as well as hosting guests.

    To be honest we were looking forward very much to De Vette Mossel and unfortunately we were quite disappointed with the experience. The food was very average in comparison to what you would expect from a seafood restaurant in general. We were constantly reminded that we could eat as much as we like, however we never had the desire to have more than one helping of every meal. Whilst it is marketed as a 7-course meal in reality there are just two seafood dishes, namely the snoek and patats, and the seafood “potjie”. The remaining five “dishes” include the bread for a starter, the mussels, a mussel sauce, one meat “potjie”, the koeksisters and fresh fruit for dessert. It was not pleasant not having cutlery available, not all meals are easy to eat with your hands or with mussel shells. In our experience we did not think that we received value for our money.

    Due to the rain the ramp up to the toilets was slippery as well as the tiles in the toilets. A bit dangerous specially for older people Otherwise a great experience
