The Noisy Oyster was the highlight of our trip to Paternoster. Cozy atmosphere, wonderful staff, and the best lamb shank I have ever eaten. I would drive 2 hours from Cape Town just to enjoy the food at this delightful restaurant. Book early...and be completely blown away by this talented chef and over gem of a place.

We enjoyed Sunday lunch at the Noisy Oyster while on holiday in Paternoster. The setting is outdoors but under cover. Chinese lanterns, stoney gravel floor, wooden pub tables, sculptures, quirky art and a super fun crew of waiters combine to make this a unique dining venue. The menu is electric and limited. The oysters are excellent. I tried the lamb... More

We were a bit taken aback when we realised that we were eating in the open air! But it was good - rugs and heaters provided. Menu not extensive but the food was absolutely excellent as was the service. Well worth a visit!

Enclosed courtyard with lanterns & fire places makes for a beautiful, ambient setting outdoors. The calamari starter was fantastic. Bringing your own wine is allowed. Service was good and one of the best restaurants in Paternoster.

Because we had bad luck two years ago, arrriving on a Monday, leaving on Wednesday, we had no chance to visit this well known restaurant. This time we made it right (including the really necessary reservation in time) and..... ... It was worth it to come back! Very friendly staff, a small, but interesting menu (...foreplay, intercourse....) and short wine-list.... More

We found Noisy Oyster on TripAdvisor. It is all true. Great atmosphere and wonderful, wonderful food! Gourmet eating in Paternoster at its best. No ocean view, but highly recommended from a dining perspective! Yes!

This in one of my favourite restaurants in the world! Great atmosphere, friendly staff and excellent food. Almost impossible to get a booking in season but worth the wait. The staff is very friendly and great service! The food is magnificent....literally everything on the menu! A great food experience and a great night out!

This is my favourite restaurant in Paternoster. You definitely need to book, as it is very popular. The staff are very friendly and the food is great! The ambiance is relaxed, cosy and casual. We had dinner on the Saturday night and went back for lunch on the Sunday. :-)
