The vibe in the restaurant was idyllic for Sunday lunch. Starters were great. Try the calamari with capers and definitely the mussels. All seafood mains fantastic, the oxtail ragu with pasta amazing. Disappointed with pork belly. Crackling not great. Puddings are all delightful❤️Try them all.

Lovely atmosphere and varied menu which apparently keeps changing. We both ate fish dishes which were delicious.
Our friends found their meals had too many spices combined- but they are picky eaters!

At the outset much must be made of the service and attitude of our waiter Peter who was beyond outstanding and tipped accordingly.Compared to our last visit the food was not of the quality and calibre of our previous visit.My pork belly was great,the meat ball starter a bit lonely and the drinks very expensive.My other 6 friends were generally grumpy about their food.Perhaps it was the expense at R1200.00 per couple.

This place is closed on Monday and Tuesday, and in High Season you had better book in advance, or you will be left on the outside looking in. On this occasion a "Very Good" rating is accurate 80/100.
This is a plain restaurant without frills, but the chef knows what they are doing.
I had a glass of white wine, (R50) with my Silver Fish, which came with vegetables on a bed of mashed potatoes(R170) Well cooked, and plenty of fish and veggies.Jill had a Tiella (R195) mussels, rice and veg. Again plenty of food at a reasonable price.
We would definitely recommend this restaurant to all who go paternoster way

The service was warm and friendly, despite the restaurant being rather busy. They'd apparently just launched a new menu and it was tough to choose between the various creative and delicious-sounding dishes. I opted for the dukkah-crusted fish, which was superb! While the prices aren't cheap, it's probably fair value considering the quality and excellent flavours.
The semi-outdoor courtyard setting has been perfectly decorated to create a colourful, humour-filled, inviting space. The weather was warm when we were there, but I suspect you may need to dress warmly if it's a cold night (as it's partially open-air). They do have a few fireplaces though, so ask to be seated next to one if you don't like the cold. I imagine it'll be very pleasant in summer!
