We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary in Paternoster and had a lovely, romantic dinner at the Noisy Oyster. Such a beautiful spot! The hosts were friendly and the ambiance was wonderful. It was a bit chilly so they had a fireplace going which made it...perfectly cosy. We ordered the oxtail and pork belly and both dishes were beautifully presented and super tasty. Will definitely recommend and will be sure to visit them again.More

Glittering little fairy lights adorn the interior of this unique gem of a place. Well protected from the elements, and totally enclosed. Full marks for decor, service and quality of food! Felt as though we had stepped into fairyland. Steak was done to perfection. Rather...pricey, however. Enjoyed the culinary experience!More

Brilliant restaurant!!! We had a fabulous dinner this past weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our meal, the venue, the atmosphere and our table near the fire! Our waiter, Pieter, had a great sense of humor and gave us great service.

I am anaphylaxis to tree nuts. I said this over the phone before ordering our meal with noisy oyster. I know they heard me as they immediately told me I could not have the Laksa as it contained nuts. Upon sitting down and eating my...first bite of the "nut free" food we were served, I immediately knew by mouth felt weird. I told the waiter to please check if our food had nuts, and he defensively told me it did not. I asked again a few minutes later to be told once again, there was no way where were any nuts. I then said a third time "listen, I have had a nut allergy for thirty years, I know when I have eaten nuts and there are nuts in something I ate." Suddenly the waiter said "ahh yes, the calamari has pesto. Im not sure what is in it, maybe cashews." Upon checking with the chef, it was confirmed that indeed, the calamari mad cashews. Now, cashews are my worst nut- just one bite can send me to hospital. Thank god I had my epi pen on me and was able to act quickly. The waiter showed zero remorse, concern, regret. Even worse, when my friend offered to still pay (which she should not have...at the time i was giving myself my epi pen in the parking lot) - the venue accepted. Thank god I did not listen to the noisy oyster and discontinued eating the calamari even after they swore they were no nuts. Otherwise I perhaps would not be alive to write this review. Truly disgusted at the noisy oyster. Do not recommend if.you have any sort of food intolerance.More
