I was at the Noisy Oyster in March this year with some friends. The food is outstanding! i order the seafood Laska which was easily one of the best laskas that I have ever had, and I have traveled a fair bit in the Far East. The restaurant has a quirky and slightly eclectic feel about it which only adds... More

Visited this arty restaurant on very short motice. It was a bit of a chilly day in Paternoster which made the visit unpleasant from a temperature point of view as this is an outside under cover venue. The food was however excellent and the service outstanding. Just take a jacket with for in case. You will not be dissapointed.

Lovely restaurant. The food is creative, beautifully presented and tasty. It offers a diverse menu with a twist on some of the classics. The standard of the dishes are fantastic and I am happy that we stopped by. Unfortunately, just felt a bit unwelcome by the hostess.

The place is with a nice vibe and nicely decorated. The food is made with perfect taste, the mixed seafood dish included half a crayfish, Mussels, calamari, shrimps & prawns, and fish. The perfect dish to enjoy everything that the place has to offer ! The food is made without much oil and the ingredients are fresh, you have to... More

Staff was friendly, wine was good, food was excellent. I had the Sword fish filet. A great place to dine.I say quirky because the restaurant is open yet covered... More

Fortunately we had a reservation as the restaurant was full. Lovely warm fires burning created a wonderful atmosphere. Excellent hostess and waitress with professional service made for a great evening out. The seafood!!!!!! Certainly the best well balanced seafood

We arrived at the tail end of lunch time which was so disappointing as we had heard such good thing s about this little restaurant. The staff were kind enough to let us have some starters which were excellent - oysters (obviously) and calamari. The owner told us that tonight (27 July 2016) was their opening night after the short... More
