Lonely Planet review

This company, opened in 1949, grows its own oysters out in the lagoon; you can take a tour of the processing plant and have a tasting of a cultivated and wild oyster with a glass of wine for R45 at its restaurant afterwards. You’ll need a knife and fork for the jumbo oysters (R20 each). If you prefer your oysters cooked, you can have them wrapped in bacon, or with ginger and mandarin. For romantics, the bar has champagne. It’s hugely busy and touristy, but for good reason.
