Some interesting dishes on the menu and the first time in quite a while we had steak tartare as an option .Good food but the outside seating detracts from the ambiance. Limited choice of liquers.

The creamiest most succulent oysters I've ever tasted - fresh from the sea. And the sirloin steak is to die for - together with efficient service and a quirky surrounding, this restaurant is world class. Good value for your money (even South Africans). We go there every year for our wedding anniversary and this year we received a complimentary (large... More

Seafood Laska at The Noisy Oyster as well as all other dishes was all sorts of delicious. What a great restaurant. Super friendly & efficient staff and all dishes ordered were better than perfect.

Nothing less than pure food poetry is served up at the Noisy Oyster. We first came here three years ago and it was top of our list of places to revisit when we came back. It didn't disappoint. Eating here is like being welcomed into the arms of food heaven. It's the kind of food you have to smoke a... More

As it is one of the top spots to eat in Paternoster, one must make an early booking for a dinner table during the holiday season. The seafood is outstanding, we had a mixed platter and line fish. The ambience is fun and different, but we really battled to get the attention of our server. This was our second visit... More

The noisy oyster is a bit of a surprise,the restaurant opens out into a quirky garden. It was full and vibrant and we enjoyed a delicious steak. The menu is presented in an interesting way, I wont spoil the surprise. Picnic style tables are a nit uncomfortable, so I would request a table with proper chairs. Booking essential!
