Great ambience

This quaint little place is a must to book, don't leave it to chance as it is very busy and books up quickly. we were fortunate to have friends who knew that booking was essential so manage to get a table for 8 no problem.

Perfect food, great setting and awesome service. What else do you need when eating out? Highly recommended, especially the Seafood Laksa! Thanks and enjoy it!

Loved this place, real beach feel, food was great, service very good. It's very popular so you need to book. Lots of older people in Paternoster when we were there, and its pebble floor Nd wood benches, plus very low lighting didn't suit them, I think. This is not fine dining, but it's fab.

We were expecting a lot more from the restaurant as we'd read some great reviews.
