About Mussel Monger

“The Mussel Monger & Oyster bar, South Africa’s leading specialist purveyor of live oysters & mussels. Discover our home in Saldanha, our story and our remarkable produce which can be experienced through our internationally celebrated oyster bars in Cape Town and Stellenbosch or in your own home throughout the online store, delivering A Grade live oysters & mussels, every week from our ocean harvest farms right to your door.”



“Our oysters feed off the nutrient-rich tidal movements of the bay while suspended from long lines that floats just below the ocean surface.

Everything is farmed within the bay of Saldanha at Sea. They’re exposed to all the same conditions as wild oysters. Interestingly though, farmed produce is maintained through a process called tumbling whereby they are removed from the ocean every 2-3 months, cleaned of the dense thick bio matter which grows on their shells and replanted. The result is that the oysters spend less time fighting for food, space and clean water and spend more time drifting in the ocean. Arguably they could be as good as wild, if not better.

Our farms undergo some of the strictest testing in the world, we’re governed by DAFF the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries and we have incredibly strict standards which need to be adhered to. These standards are in fact so high, that they are well above any level which may pose a threat to your health. Our produce is administered and tested daily through independent laboratories in Cape Town which monitor every form of bacteria and micro-organisms. Any trace above required levels results in immediate closure and 3 consecutive cleared tests need to be produced before a letter of reopening is issued.”

so fresh and plump

Oysters were so fresh and plump. But we had difficulty shucking them. But all agreed worth the effort.
