De Vette Mossel

Eat as much as you like – or can! De Vette Mossel (The Fat Mussel) offers much more than perfectly prepared seafood – this is an experience – in unusual and informal surroundings with traditional Cape fishing culture – in true West Coast Style. Literally on the beach.
“ The only way to really enjoy seafood, is in abundance, sand under the feet, the smell of the ocean in the nostrils – right next to the sea”.

Acclaimed for local seafood specialties, ingeniously prepared.Coastal oysters, black mussels and Mossel Bay Sole are delivered daily from the harbour to make a delectable and varied a la carte menu, which includes pizza, salads, meat dishes, light lunches and Rainbow Cuisine.

At this popular restaurant one can dance the night away and for the hungry there is a large ala carte menu. A ladies bar is also available ensuring an all round service. Treat yourself and your family for a fun evening at this lively venue. A liquor store and wine shop are on the premises for your convenience and Antique lovers can browse in the biggest Antique Shop in South-Africa.
The Transkaroo Restaurant, housed in the old Great Brak River Railway Station, dated since 1906. It is here that you will find this exquisite restaurant, with a relaxing and peaceful ambience overlooking the lagoon and the waves of the ocean.
Inspired by old fashioned cooking, Stefan Jamneck (owner and chef) adds a modern influence to the menu. It is his believe, “if it is not fresh, it is not served” that makes Transkaroo a popular place to wine and dine. Some call it comfort food, but we call it casual cuisine, every item on the menu carefully and passionately made. No doubt you will also find a bottle of wine to suite your meal. The best oven roasted lamb neck you’ll ever have and the sweetened sweet potatoes are to die for!
