I have recently had meals at this restaurant on two occasions: once for a romantic birthday meal for my partner and once for a family meal with my elderly, visiting parents. Both meals were great and I can specifically recommend the prawns and angel-fish dishes....More

Wonderful welcoming restaurant with friendly staff serving great food. The smoorsnoek starter is sublime, a true taste sensation. Instead of the ordinary veg, try the Mozambique veg stew - spicy and oh so delicious! We continue to come back again and again.

If you dine out hoping for a good environment, nice scenery and good food this might not be the place. Good food but terrible decor. Hodge podge of this and that and klunky old furniture that often traps sand in the cracks. Not the best...More

Delicious food offered by the couple who own the restaurant and who are clearly passionate about the food the create, the restaurant they run and the community they live in. Excellent recommendations and great food, beautifully presented and well-priced. Thank you for a lovely evening

The host was so congenial and engaging without being overbearing. We had lunch on an unusually cold day in March, so we ate indoors where a log burning stove was blazing. The food was good (not great), unsophisticated in its presentation. However the overall experience...More

We recently ate dinner at this venue, having chosen the calamari and macadamia and pear salad as starters. Presentation and taste was delicious but perhaps lacking in a bit of value as portions were small. Mains was kingklip and the chicken with some very well...More

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!
