A wonderful meal, as close to the beach as you can get. Prawns, hake, calamari all delicious. Malva pudding, a truly South African dessert, a perfect end to dinner. Restaurant had a lovely vibe with people from many different countries. Proud that foreign tourists can...experience this.More

This setting was nice but the food... its like if barbie had a restaurant, everything is synthetic, the hake was frozen then grilled and the mussels were good but the garlic sauce was not good, and the audacity to put this on the exit sign....(See the photo below)More

The best beach restaurant in Paternoster. Perfect location, a step onto the beach sand. Great venue. Lovely food (my wife still talks about the peri-peri prawns). One of the great aspects to a visit to Paternoster is the lazy lunches on the beach, supplemented by...the best cold, crisp sauvignon blancs. I'd recommend it.More

We have visited the Voorstrand many times over the years and the food offering never disappoints. It is homely and well presented rather than haute cuisine but of course being right on the beach plays a major role in its continued popularity. But you always...have the feeling that you’re sitting in an outdoor schoolroom - partly the furniture, the warning notices, even the naughty step smokers school desk - combined with overloud entitled families who seem to think that they can dominate the ambiance in public restaurants as they do at home.More

This may be the perfect spot to see a sunset in Paternoster. As it dips behind the lighthouse area and the candles are lit on the table. You get the smell of the amazing dinner you have ordered. All while sitting on a patio with...the beach sand between your toes. Just perfect.More

My husband & I were just exploring the area around Saint Helena Bay when we decided to stop at Voorstrand for a late lunch/early dinner. Even though all the tables were reserved & we didn't have a reservation, they immediately showed us to a table....Our friendly waitress delivered a great service & the view was gorgeous. The fish of the day was hake and/or cardinal. We had one of each. The fish was perfectly cooked (grilled) & the flavor was amazing! Would most definitely suggest visiting this lovely place when you're in the area. 10 out of 10 !!More

The seafood is delicious and what makes this restaurant special, apart from the location, is the quality and friendliness of the service. Keep coming back again and again!

I expected more, you have to book but when I booked the person did not tell us that the table is not in the lower part or gave us an option so we were stuck away. So ask when book if you want to sit...“close to the beach” Food was very tasty bit for me it was about the experience of being on the beach.. i should have asked but did not know the layout of the restaurant.More
