Wonderful ambiance

we enjoyed our dinner in this busy restaurant. The setting is a open courtyard with a water feature and open wood fires to take the chill off the early autumn evening. Candles burnt on the tables, and it was all very romantic. We asked them to slow down our service to Spanish rather than... read more

This is one of the best restaurants as regards food and atmosphere anywhere. The service is friendly and efficient and the settng is quirky but really comfortable. I had the cob which was absolutely fresh and cooked perfectly. This is the must visit restaurant but booking is essential.

Pre booked for this Restaurant prior to going to Paternoster, and glad we did as it was fully booked. The food was outstanding. My wife had the mussels to start - so tasty, Sirloin steak for main which was cooked as requested and tasted fantastic, and the Chocolate and toffee brownie for dessert which was heaven. I had the Terrine... More

This one is not to be missed. Be sure to book. It may not have a beach front location but what it has to offer far outweighs the sea view. We were in the enclosed walled garden which was creatively decorated and set the mood for a lovely leisurely lunch. The menu is diverse, a great deal of thought has... More

We last visited this restaurant in April 2012 and can happily say that the quality of the food and service has not changed in the meantime. It is still undoubtedly a "must visit" restaurant in Paternoster if you want to enjoy interesting, tasty food at reasonable prices and experience friendly efficient service. A reminder though, you must always book well... More

We were taken here by our daughter to celebrate! This is our year of the 80s! Both of us turn 80 years young this year and as we have lived in South Africa for 40 years, our total 'living time' in this wonderful country is also 80 years. We were also celebrating our 58 years of marriage. Dining is in... More

We booked and it's recommended - this is Paternoster's number one for a reason The starters were huge although I chose three oysters that were superb. For mains there were a lot of choices and lots of non seafood choices too - it's my fave but I decided to try something different here and went for sirloin whilst others had... More
