“West Coast regional cuisine of highest order”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

What an experience! Kobus, now waiting for your food book, which is in the pipeline. No wonder those few tables are booked out weeks in advance!

“What a find!”

Awesome service and atmosphere. Food is to die for and the staff very friendly. Will have to make a plan to come back.

“Amazing little restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

Just had lunch at the restaurant and was amazed at the food presented. A very small little eatery, only 5-7 tables, offering only seafood (you will not find steak or chicken on the 5-7 dishes served daily, or desert).

The seafood was original and exceptionally tasty. Interesting edible greens are used in some of the dishes, I had a type of salty succulant with my starter that tasted amazing. My wife had mussels that melted in ones mouth.

We are returning to this amazing little town, restaurant and exceptional chef.

“Great, great seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

I love mussels and had the best mussels at this tiny bistro taking the baton from a restaurant I have been frequenting for some time. For people who love seafood- this is the place. Kobus van der Merwe is brilliant and his creations are both innovative and tasty. If you do not like seafood - rather give this one a skip. For those who do- a feast await.

“Empty restaurant showing us away”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

We visited the Paternoster winkel adjacent to Oep Ve Koep bistro today. We saw that the restaurant was empty and approached the owner for a table. He refused to accommodate us, as he claims he is fully reserved. We couldn't understand that, as it was only 12pm (not yet time for lunch) and the restaurant was empty. Not much to be said about being accommodating. Luckily for us we found a gem just up the road in Blikkies Pizzeria with a wonderful view of the main beach, delicious food and professional and helpful staff.
