We had a quick lunch at Paternoster Lodge with family from the UK.
The service was friendly and efficient. The calamari was absolutely excellent: tender and tasty
The huge windows make you feel part of the outdoors while you are protected from the wind.
O and the view, the view!!!

I had a great time at the Paternoster Lodge, the owner and the staff were very friendly & efficient. The location of the place and its proximity to other establishments is great, you really don't have to use your car as you can walk to everywhere. My stay here was comfortable and peaceful, I will surely use them again.

We stayed for 3 days . The place was situated in a perfect location - one could see the sea and beach for miles and miles! Rooms were clean and very comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast great! We will be back! Frans and Daleen Pretoria

We went there on a Monday night. It was quiet, and even though the service was friendly they were very slow. The view was pretty but the food was disappointing. We ordered a focaccia as a starter and it was like deflavoured cardboard. Steaks were flavorless and tough. We tried providing some constructive feedback to manager but he was disinterested and dismissive. There’s a lot of other fantastic restaurants in Paternoster, and this one doesn’t come close to the standard that we’ve seen at others here.

During our honeymoon, my wife and I decided to dine at this restaurant for lunch. Upon arrival, we found the establishment to be clean and offer a pleasant atmosphere. While the staff was friendly, their attentiveness was not overly pronounced. We both opted for the Hake dish. However, approximately an hour later, we both fell seriously ill and had to resort to medication to alleviate the effects and aid our recovery. Needless to say, this was not an enjoyable experience during our honeymoon. We suspect that the fish may have been either left out for too long or not fully cooked. As such, we would advise caution, particularly concerning the fish dishes, should you choose to dine here.

The Paternoster Lodge is blessed with the most beautiful location in this little town.
The staff is very friendly and helpfull....BUT
• depending on which staff is on duty will
determine the quality of your service
• we had no wi fi during our stay and our
TV was not working
• the breakfast was substandard

This is so DISAPPOINTING , because it PROMISED so much!

Mother and daughter "women's day' gateway.
The lodge is beautifully located with a magnificent seaview.
Our room was exactly how we expected. It was a bit cold that weekend. Luckily, there is a reversible A/C in the room and a heater in the bathroom.
The staff has been amazing all the way. I highly recommend Mark for an hour of horse riding on the beach. It was absolutely fantastic !
We only had breakfast at the lodge. The menu has not a large variety of choice. But for 3 days, it was great.
Even when came the bill with a misunderstanding about breakfast included, but was not.
We will definitely come back in summer to explore the area a bit more.

The room was immaculate so we can’t fault that.
We arrived on a Sunday the lodge restaurant is closed Sunday and Monday so feels really odd.
Welcome was a little lacking in warmth.
Pool is incredibly small 6 x 12 ft max
No safe in the room
Breakfast was really good 😊
Value for money but has the feeling of a 1989’s holiday camp

Paternoster was very busy on a summer Sunday, but we managed to find a table here. The food was perfect for the occasion: a simple menu, very well cooked and cheerfully served. The atmosphere was cheerful, with families eating and friendly efficient service. We were indoors, but open to the outside with a quite stunning view over the bay.

The lodge location is very good. you get excellent views of the beach from dining area and from the pool. The room was very spacious and comfortable. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We did not have breakfast included in our booking but the lodge offered us us free breakfast for our stay. Although it was a limited menu breakfast we really enjoyed it. Would recommend to stay. Really great location ad value for money. Everrything within walking distance too.
