Great food and lovely service, but pricey

Cute restaurant in a cosy back yard with easy and relaxed ambience. Exciting menu - the seafood especially. You cannot go to Paternoster without eating at the Noisy Oyster!

Our second visit - just as amazing as the first. Fabulous food, great atmosphere, quirky bathrooms and décor - cannot recommend it enough. The quiz questions were a great hit with our group!

Visited today with a group of friends and had a great time. Service was excellent and the food was unusual, creative and fantastic. The most creative calamari dish I've ever tasted. The bathrooms were a talking point and they even supplied blankets when it got chilly. There isn't a view but the food and experience more than make up for... More

Without a doubt the best restaurant in Paternoster, and I've tried most of them. A must visit. Interesting menu, great wine selection and intimate garden setting.

Everything here is top notch, from service to quality of food as well as the atmosphere. I was wowed by everything at this restaurant, this is a 'Michelin star' type of a restaurant. They don't try too hard and yet they offer an unparalleled product.
