De Vette Mossel - Grootbrak | Fun-Tastic Prize


WIN a couples meal voucher at De Vette Mossel - Grootbrak in Mossel Bay for 2 lucky winners valued at R520.00 each



De Vette Mossel (The Fat Mussel) offers much more than perfectly prepared seafood. This is an Experiene, in unusual and informal surroundings, with traditional cape fishing culture in true West Coast style.

“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.”


Kick off your shoes on a pristine and isolated beach at South Africa’s favourite holiday town, Mossel Bay in the Garden Route! Sip some wine, gaze over the water and indulge in seafood in abundance!

We at De Vette Mossel strive to offer much more than merely perfectly prepared seafood – this is an experience, in unusual and informal surroundings, where you relax with friends (old ones and newly found ones) where your time is your own and where you may eat as much as you like – just like we do along the West Coast.

The excellent preparation of top quality seafood, in abundance, and value for money, is our pride.
The different dishes are prepared and presented one after the other as a rolling buffet. We strive to prepare seafood perfectly, and to serve it immediately thereafter. This guarantees freshly prepared seafood on the plate – an absolute must for exceptional seafood.


With arrival we welcome you with a complementary glass of good Cape wine.
We do have a well-stocked cash bar and specialize in stunning cocktails.


Our menu consists of 13 dishes served over 7 courses which are prepared and presented one after the other as a rolling buffet. Of each you may eat as much as you like – or can! Rock Lobster, Calamari, Prawns and Catch of the Day are additional for those of you who want to go all out! But this is not as easy as it sounds….

The majority of the dishes is prepared in full view on open fires in front of you – this guarantees off–the-grid-fresh seafood – the only way to do it.

Relax, wind down – we eat for nearly three hours! And remember, we will never run out of anything – the worst that can happen is that it is on its way!

But please, do not expect hand-crafted crystal glasses, or silver cutlery. You are at the beach, and here we do it as we would along the West Coast- you eat with a mussel shell. If you do not think you’ll like it, or if you are of the opinion than you deserve more from life, you will most definitely be more at ease in a fancy French restaurant.

*We donate all food that could not be finished to seriously needy families in the area. Nothing goes to waste here.
