While staying in Paternoster the host of our guesthouse recommended the Voorstrandt as a really good fish restaurant without any attitude - and we did not get disappointed.
The restaurant is in the first line to the ocean, only a stone's throw away where the fish on the plate comes from.
The location is equipped quite simple but in a snugly way with a lot of nice details.
We hat a table in the annex with a direct view to the ocean - maybe to fresh in winter but ok in summer.
We had really delicious tempura shrimps (the waiter told us that they are frozen ones as we ordered - this is real honesty!), fantastic yellowtail (line fish of the day) cajun style and a incredible good crayfish/lobster. The dessert was a mouth-watering "sticky toffee cake" with ice.
Prices and delivered value was really good, the service quick and very friendly.

We went here on a septemberevening. It was very cold outside but very warm inside. It's a cosy place. The fried squid were good and soft and the bread was very good. But these are the only positive things I have to say about this place. We thought to eat a delicious fishmeal, but the prawns were overcooked and tough, the sauce was only melted butter, and the most things are fried. They didn't have lobster. I was very suprised about that because people on the street sell a lot of lobsters! And you have to be patient, because you have to wait a lot, even for the bread! And we had a huge hunger ...

Plenty of fried food ( particularly fish) at the restaurant on the beach. Well cooked but somewhat limited menu. Worth a visit for a basic but perfectly adequate meal

You don't get many settings much better than this. The Voorstrandt restaurant is perched right on the beach, a stone's throw away from the ocean's edge. Sunsets from here must be glorious.
We inadvertently had two meals at the restaurant - at lunch time when we arrived in the village and again at dinner, given our hotel had booked a table for us there.
I'd say Voorstrandt is probably a better lunch time option than a dinner restaurant - you can arrive in your beach gear, have a beer and a plate of prawns and simply chill. Night time, in winter, the chill factor goes to a whole new level - we froze! There is no patio heating, no blankets are on offer.
The food is good, unpretentious, but not outstanding - good prawns iffy sauce, greasy fish and chips. It's a bit and miss.
The service is good, and the staff are friendly and welcoming.
For what you get, it's not bad value for money, but it is a casual, beach place.
