Great super fresh food. Salat (Papaya, Avocado, Macadamia) to Fish, oysters (best home made spicy relish ever) and Moçambique vegetarian stew were excellent. Great service and very cosy and personal atmosphere. Highly recommend!

Louis and team are great hosts and made us feel at home from the moment we walked in!! The introduction to their local wines was very interesting to hear the story behind the story. Wine pairing was great and the cuisine was excellent. Well Done!!

Louis went out of his way to let us taste everything. Best chicken livers and seafood Malay curry ever! Also tried the chicken, calamari, salad- great dressing. Caulirice- perfect! Great wines!

At The Square Spoon we aim to marry "East with West" African style. Namely West Coast (South Africa) to East Coast (Mozambique) So on our menu there are dishes of both! We also cater for vegetarians and vegans! Come and enjoy!
