De Vette Mossel

August 27, 2021


If you are looking for a traditional seafood restaurant, then De Vette Mossel is not for you. Traditional seafood restaurants come with fancy cutlery and tableware, unpronounceable wine lists, and heavy price tags. Often they are situated kilometers away from the sea, and the dining experience is, well, just that, a mundane dining experience. One that you could have at any point in your life, unmemorable and one you possibly wouldn’t rave about to your grandchildren in years to come. This is not the case when you venture to the De Vette Mossel restaurants. Their rustic alfresco dining experiences are filled with lashings of fresh all-you-can-eat seafood, each mouthful a frisson of pure culinary genius. Their secret is in keeping things simple. With restaurants situated along the beautiful Cape Garden Route and rural areas of the Western Cape, the De Vette Mossel is all about providing lavish amounts of top-quality seafood while you take the time to slow down and savour each mouthful. The locations are exquisite and tranquil, and there’s no pressure to eat and leave. All of this comes without the heavy price tag.


How does it work

When it comes to an abundance of seafood, the De Vette Mossel knows how to lay it on. There is never an empty plate for long with thirteen dishes and seven courses served as a massive banquet-style buffet. The food is freshly prepared on open fires. The dining experience is spread across three hours of eating and relaxing while unwinding with friends and family. The De Vette Mossel experience is all about taking your time and enjoying your surroundings. To be honest, we believe time does stand still when you’re enjoying a meal at De Vette Mossel.


What’s on the De Vette Mossel menu?

What’s not to like when looking at this menu bulging with great meal options?

Its thought that fish with high omega -3 fatty acids can reduce joint inflammation and improve depression, heart health, and eyesight. That’s great news for those heading off to relax at a De Vette Mossel beach restaurant because now you have the perfect excuse to keep going back for more. Just say it’s for the sake of your health!

  • Seafood Pots with four varieties of fish, including prawn tails, calamari, and mussels
  • Rock Lobster or whole prawns

No nasty bill surprises at the end of your meal, causing unnecessary indigestion!
