We got a late cancellation seat on the 31st December 2016. It was worth the wait for that year! Food was great and when you around Paternoster, please visit

The food is superb! We had the laksa and the angelfish and both were just perfect. Everything was so fresh and beautifully presented. It was great to have the fresh chilli on the side to add into the laksa as I enjoy spicy food. Excellent...More

We booked this restaurant based upon its number one rating on Trip Advisor. We have been to paternoster a few times but never eaten here. Restaurant is unassuming from the outside but warm and welcoming when you walk in. It was a particularly chilly evening...More

Hi, marksnell2016. What would you like to know about this restaurant? Really surprised at your evaluation. Never had a bad meal at this restaurant in the last 7 / 8 years. When we are in SA we are regulars. However I suppose there is, as they say no accounting for taste. Different strokes for different folks but it is clear that the overwhelming majority of people who have posted comments disagree with you. I certainly will continue to visit this wonderful restaurant
