About Us Mobile Fusion Slide Header Img Grootbrak De Vette Mossel

FOUNDED DECEMBER 2004

FROM THE START

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!

But De Vette Mossel does not only exist because of  Niël. Nikki Geyer for whom there is no such thing as too much trouble, has joined forces and now fully operates the restaurant throughout the year when Niël is taking a break or frying other fish.

The dozen or so chefs, cleaners and kitchen staff is a story in its own right. Only jobless people were employed, trained and today they form an integral part of De Vette Mossel. Without them, De Vette Mossel is not possible – they therefore also share in the fruits of success.

HERE WE GO GREEN!

We at De Vette Mossel love our ocean and the environment in which we operate. We believe that each person, and especially restaurants, have a duty to conserve our wonderful natural environment, and to use it in a sustainable and responsible manner. We owe it to our children and their children’s children.

Although De Vette Mossel’s impact on the environment has been minuscule since the start, we have since August 2018 began to implement various projects to reduce our impact on the environment even further. With strategic planning, effort and a few Rands here and there, we are succeeding without removing anything from our unique eating experience!

The founder and owner of De Vette Mossel, Niël du Bois, is an ex-environmental journalist and advisor for National Ministers of Environmental Affairs & Sea-fisheries.
