This is maybe what West coast restaurants should be about. Sitting in a garden setting under trees where tranquility is measurable! Then the food...stunningly presented and prepared. Ambiance, decor and service all contribute to a memorable experience

Quirky, but outstanding. Our guest house owners had recommended and booked a table for us here. On arrival we were greeted with a very warm welcome and shown to our table which was located in the rear courtyard. There were a number of large umbrellas up in case of rain and as there was a strong breeze they quickly lit... More

We went here with high expectations. My husband had fresh oysters followed by a grilled fish dish all of which was good. I am a laksa enthusiast and despite being miles from the Far East.l I decided to order the seafood laksa. Mistake. The fish in the dish was quite good but the broth and the noodles were practically inedible... More

What a cool atmosphere - with really yummy food and our waitress was incredible! We were the last to leave, and we didn't have milk for our coffee in our guest house, so they even gave us some from there fridge. Too nice. What a great experience - will definitely go back if we are ever in Paternoster.

Excellent service from start to finish. Attention to detail with the decor and ambience. Superb menu selection and wine to match. We tried the starter calamari and a plate of delicious mackeral. This was then followed by the red fillet...simply delicious. Great option is that one can bring in your own wine. Highly recommended dining experience with good sized portions... More

Whilst the atmosphere and setting is superb, the food is not as good as the price suggests. The service was good and the menu caters for a variety of tastes. Be sure to take a jacket on wet and/or cool evenings..

Have been here 3 times and it never disappoints. Staff lovely and welcoming. The layout and decor are fabulous. What a treat to be able to eat outside all evening and look up at the stars while sitting by a fire. I love it here oh and of course the food is fabulous. Whatever you choose you will love it....
