In December 2004, owner Niël du Bois followed his heart, gave his creative spirit free reins, took the plunge and did what many people only dream about – opening an open air restaurant literally on a beach. Where the best seafood is prepared and enjoyed in Spartan surroundings – just like on the West Coast.
The first De Vette Mossel Beach Seafood Restaurant was born. On an isolated and pristine beach at Groot Brak River near Mossel Bay.
Thanks to the continuous support by our newly found Mossel friends, De Vette Mossel grew and grew. For Niël, De Vette Mossel is still like a vacation – bare feet along one of South Africa’s most beautiful beaches, the get together with old Mossel friends and the making of new ones – every day!
Since October 2012 you can also off your shoes at the second De Vette Mossel on our Bushveld Beach at Hartbeespoortdam, North West, a year later on our little piece of sea paradise in the Free State –De Vette Mossel @ Parys, and since December 2018 in the Whale Coast at Hermanus near Cape Town.
