An excellent coffee shop with good wholesome food. Very clean with friendly well trained staff. The mince on toast for breakfast, the apple crumble for dessert, the mutton curry/bobotie for lunch- try them all! Can't wait to go back again and again!

Interesting setting in a cosy, welcoming venue with a fire going during winter, a relaxed and upmarket atmosphere. It is part of larger premises that also house a curio/collectibles etc shop so you can browse around before or after your meal. The food is carefully prepared, tasty and well presented by friendly staff. All in all a classy, relaxed venue... More

This restaurant is lovely and elegant. One feels as if one is sitting in a sun room in a little village and not on a busy road in a busy town. As we only has cake that is what I am able to comment on.the cake was delicious. The service was very good too. A lovely place to visit.

Pleasantly surprised by the Pea and Eisbein Soup, as I was not in the mood for the usual bacon and egg brunch. No children under 10 due to all the beautiful, breakable items for sale in and around the store, but still worth it for a ladies tea or family with older children.

A very quaint restaurant with a nick nacks shop attached. Breakfast was nice and very good value for money service did let it down a bit however. If you are in the area though definitely stop in for a look around.

What a lovely place Fynbos Restuarant is. I visited with my partner and a friend for lunch. We sat outside in the quaint garden area. The young lady who served us was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. I had a lovely homemade ham and mushroom quiche served wit a salad. The quiche was gorgeous.

If you love Traditional South Africa food, a visit to this beautiful restaurant is a must when visiting Mossel Bay. Service is excellent and very friendly. Best atmosphere in winter with a little fireplace. We visit most weekends.

Well it is a completely different report now. The fine dining portion has disappeared. The previous excellent chef has moved on to different things now. So back to a coffee shop and a run of the mill looking lunch menu. We only stayed for coffee but it really is a lovely setting and the service was friendly and prompt. I... More

Although the food was tasty the portions were very small. The menu specified a large loaf for a toasted sandwich but it was smaller than the average loaf in a grocery store. We ordered large cappuccino but it is was also in a small cup. The salad was a skimpy peace of letters and a small slice of tomato. That... More

Thank you for the feedback...I am sorry to hear about your unpleasant experience. You do not mention which bread you ordered...the wholewheat seedloaf is much smaller that the average size bread. Our salad consists of more than cucumber, lettuce and tomato...you do not mention that you ordered a salad. We only have one size cappuccino. More
