Nothing to dislike. Liked the steak, service and general vibe. You have to book well in advance as this Restaurant is extremely popular and with absolute good reason.

The food was well prepared and fresh, and the service was good - just a pity that we were seated next to a big table with people who brought their child along, and did not care what he was doing - they could not be bothered that he climbed on other tables (empty at that stage) and spat in the...

One of the best meals we had in the 14 days we were on holiday. The atmosphere of the rustic and cosy little restaurant was a true wonderful experience. If you want to treat yourself have a meal at the Noisy Oyster

We had battled to get a reservation the night before for dinner, as we had been told by everyone who had ever come to Paternoster that this was the place to have a romantic dinner, so we had booked through the hotel we were staying at to have lunch there. It was a very hot day & we had decided... More

The decor is fun and funky, as is the blackboard poetry. We loved everything about The Noisy Oyster for our romantic dinner - the ambience was superb and everything from the salad and oysters to our main courses was delicious! Our waitress was fantastic and made some very good dessert recommendations, which we managed to squeeze in! We loved the... More

We had dessert at the Noisy Oyster, my wife had the lemon cheese cake and I had a chocolate walnut cake, both were amazing! Best dessert we have had in ages! The service was really good. The restaurant inside is amazing, really beautiful with... More

Unfortunately we couldn't get a reservation, because the place is extremely popular, but we were allowed a look inside! Wow! Very good ambience! Private seating and blankets for colder weather. The food that was served as we scouted around, looked so mouthwatering and good portions! The smell alone can make you long for a sample. The hostess was so friendly... More

Been here a number of times as we have a holiday house just across the road and it is always excellent! Everything on the menu, especially the laksa, is delicious! And the ambience is like none other, so laid back but romantic and cosy at the same time!
