The premises of Oppidek Pub & Mama Mia Pizzeria has a long history of housing Gansbaai’s favourite watering holes and Oppidek is synonymous with the happy-go-lucky crowd that frequents it. The decor has perfectly executed a comfortable and quintessential pub feel with enough seating to enjoy drinks and pub grub while socialising with friends.
The pubs owner, Natasha Halgryn knows how to please the crowds and can safely say she knows the food and beverage business like the back of her hand. Natasha began working in the kitchen at Oppidek in 2011 and then moved on to being the pubs bar lady - before taking over ownership of the pub in 2017.
Natasha continues to create a social vibe and encourages a relaxed experience for her clients which range from local residents to international tourists. Regular events are held at Oppidek, such as the ever popular quiz nights where a small entrance fee is charged with proceeds donated to charity. Fun filled themed evenings are also held at the pub on a regular basis.
It’s Gansbaai so there is always a brandy and coke special on the go! Ice cold beer on tap flows freely and there is an irresistible cocktail menu available. What better place to enjoy spectacular African sunsets than out on the deck which undoubtedly boasts the best view in town. The pub also makes homemade melktertjies (not the kind that Ouma made), Jagerbombs served in custom-made Jagerbomb cups and something fondly known as a ‘slakbakkie’ which is Oppidek’s version of a picasso.
Oppidek is not only about drinking, and there is a choice of three food-style menu options which are available for sit-down or to take-away.
New to the food fest at Oppidek is the Mexican themed menu which boasts homemade chilli poppers, spicy nachos, cheesy quesadillas and mouth-watering enchiladas, all just begging to be washed down with an ice cold cuban mojito...or two. ¡Salud!
The ever popular pub-baskets are always a winner and the seafood basket is legendary amongst seafood lovers. The peckish can also snack on choice of samosa, cheese-griller, crumbed chicken strips or saucy chicken wings basket all served with chips and a dipping sauce.
Traditional wood-fired pizzas are baked in Gansbaai’s only wood-fired pizza oven, and Mama Mia Pizzeria take-away offer a wide selection of tasty ingredient combinations which cater for vegetarians as well as for the serious meat lover and are available as a sit down option at Oppidek Pub.
