The old German saying “Guter wein braucht kein Aushängeschild” comes to mind after blatantly over-indulging on crispy veggies, salads and a variety of home cooked meat dishes from a “lip-lekker” 3-course buffet meal at the Beach House Restaurant in Mossel Bay. That is – if you know where to find the rare gems!
Located unobtrusively at the most southern spot of the busy Spar Centre Da Nova, the unpretentious entrance reveals nothing of what lies behind the glass door. Upon entering, you are first blown away by the spacious, sunny and subtly decorated interior with sweeping views over the ocean and bay.
The reflected light-play from mirrors, glass and silverware enhances the illusion of open space . . . and the artful display of fresh fruit, salads and other delectables automatically draws one to the buffet counter where the aroma of a dozen sizzling dishes tickle your taste buds . . .
The owner-run, fully licenced Beach House Restaurant is the latest “baby” in the food industry of the well-known local culinary guru couple Leon Gouws and Elize van Wyk. The chef couple shares 37 years of experience in the industry and needs no introduction to the Southern Cape, especially after turning the Mossel Bay Yacht Club Restaurant (The Galley) into a flourishing “meet & eat magnet” for locals and visitors during the ten years they were in charge of it until 2014.
