The Noisy Oyster is usually of a higher standard ... salad over populated with lettuce not worth R65. The main dishes fish and meat were average.

Definitely the place to visit on the west coast. Oysters, Kingklip and cheesecake are all amazing!! The atmosphere is unique and very different to the normal (sometimes boring) traditional fishing village. Highly recommended!!

To complete our experience we met interesting and... More

Don't be fooled by what you see on the outside. This unpretentious little restaurant in Paternoster has a roaring fire inside to keep out the West Cost weather and reveals itself as a fantastic food experience with an interesting menu and wine list and loads of ambience. We were a large family group and went for dinner and ordered prawns,... More

We enjoyed a kid free dinner with two other couples at the Noisy Oyster and it lived up to expectations we had. The food was outstanding and the service excellent. A very good wine list with an excellent selection of wines. We will most definately return the next time we are in Paternoster.

This is a spot you must visit. One of the best meals I have had in a long time. Service was good and the ambiance made the meal taste even better. Recommend the port terrine and the seafood laksa Well worth a visit.
