Popular restaurant in sleepy town

Dined here as part of a weekend break in Paternoster.Busy restaurant and I would think booking is a must at weekends at least.Food,service and wine were good and there was a vibrant atmosphere even at lunch.I would definitely return if I was in the area again.

The inside is sort of magical. Fairy lights, very attentive blond waitress. The food is excellent, I had to have 2 starters, but I felt a bit rushed. Just finished one course and the next one was in front of me.

Great welcoming place, friendly and professional staff and really imaginative and tasty food. The ambience was really cosy and the tent-like setting different. Enjoyable if only two but larger parties comfortably catered for.

A nice little Restaurant but quite pricey for a seaside place. Service was good though and the food nice enough.

What a great evening, the feel of this lovely little restaurant makes you feel like you are in a candle-lit beach cave with tables dotted around an enclosed courtyard. Service excellent and food was super. My only minor, minor grip (and it is a little churlish as you can BYO) is the wine list was a little limited. Definitely worth... More

Everything at this restaurant was exceptional. We had to book a day in advance, but once we got there, the food and service was great. The location as well as the inside venue is set up so perfectly and it really made for a high quality lunch.

On a recent trip to Pater Noster we were advised by friends to make an advance booking. This turned out to be very good advice as the place was packed. It is a very special resturant with a really good food served by friendly staff in very different surroundings.
