Had read some recent mixed reviews on here so was slightly nervous before arrival, but need not have been. Paternoster is beautiful - empty beaches bathed in gorgeous sunshine, probably not a lot going on though!
We arrived at Abalone early afternoon and were greeted by individually made his & hers cocktails both with plastic baby ducks floating in them! Ducks are a theme here, from the real ones in the garden to the enormous plastic ones by the bath.
Our room (Number 8) upstairs had a large bathroom with separate bath/shower, a private terrace with sunloungers, a short walk to the rooftop jacuzzi and the most amazing views possible. It was beautifully decorated with a massive comfy bed. One of the nicest rooms I've ever had.
Predinner drinks were served by the open fire, which was welcome in the spring evenings. A short menu but of very high quality food - the prawn salad was much more than that and the beef was incredibly tender. The food was amazingly well cooked and presented. Sadly we didn't have room for dessert.
Food & wine are not cheap by ZA standards, but very good by UK!
This is an absolute gem and possibly on a par with Winvian in Connecticut USA, which is saying something!More
