Places to eat & drink in Gansbaai

The appetite between Stanford and Pearly Beach could match that of the Great White Shark, and some might say Gansbaai has pursued tasty food with the same fervour as these predators. The eateries may differ with regards to menu and dress code, but they all have the same ingredients: good food and good company. This is great for any holiday-makers as time-off can revolve around the cuisine of the day, and this culinary experience is enhanced by an enthralling view that can put the cherry on top of a good time. It is also a well-known fact that a full belly means a happy person, especially when it is accompanied by good conversation.

The area surrounding Gansbaai offers a range of different types of cuisine. If you are looking for a romantic setting you need travel no further, there are many quaint restaurants that cater for privacy, a decadent delight and have taken full advantage of the beautiful area. It is no wonder a sunset dinner is the epitome of romance in Gansbaai. As the setting sun washes the fynbos and ocean in rich colours, couples are sure to fall in love all over again. 

If you are travelling with children, don’t let the excited (but mostly embarrassing) wails and the ever-active bodies prevent you from enjoying an tasty meal. There are several restaurants that have accommodated for children with an open area to skip about whilst the adults relish in a much-deserved, delicious meal. The natural settings mean that children will have plenty of entertainment. Many of the restaurants cater for the entire family as they serve anything from seafood, boerekos, bobotie, steak, pasta and vegetarian dishes. There are also some local pizza joints that are always a safe bet and offer take-away if you want to spend the evening in a relaxed stupor. For ultimate convenience, there are a number of other small take-away options

While Gansbaai might be off the beaten track for some, there are 5-star restaurants that have acquired international recognition for their impeccable service and gourmet gastronomy. So if dressing up and if spending an evening fine dining is your thing then don’t be mistaken by the size of the town, Gansbaai has catered for its fair share of the rich and famous.

 If suiting up is the furthest thing on your mind then don’t worry, cosy up to the locals in a friendly environment at one of the local pub and grills. Everyone leaves their pretence at the door as people embrace traditional dancing, yummy dishes, raucous laughter and a couple of beers to lift the vibe.

No matter the time of day, the area in and around Gansbaai offers plenty of options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For any travellers camping or staying in self-catering accommodation there are supermarkets, butcheries, fisheries and bakeries to cater for any cooking necessities. For those with an insatiable sweet tooth there are coffee shops that offer lots of little delicacies. 

So come along, and enjoy a dining experience that will be made unforgettable by the exceptional beauty around Gansbaai.
