This lovely spot is a must on any West Coast tour. The vegan and gluten free friendly menu will delight and surprise! I had the venison potpie wih almond flour crust. The butterscotch baked apple was a great side. Loved it! My bf had the seafood curry, which he thought was only moderate. Also, the beer was only cold-ish... The... More

Recommended by our B & B owner we had dinner here. The outside is a bit ramshackle but we were seated by the very friendly owner who explained the two part menu. We had fish that was cooked in the pizza oven - it was delightful and very tasty. We would definitely go back

This is one of the newer establishments in Paternoster and definitely a place to try. The preparation of the seafood and the rest of the ingredients is of the highest degree and this is accompanied with very friendly and efficient service. Will definitely return in the future.

Very pleasant staff and delicious food, well prepared and presented. We like to go for lunch, the salads are amazing. The furniture and setting are quite rustic so I think it's more of a lunchtime place than evening, especially as there isn't a great beach view. But others will disagree. Good value for money. Definitely recommend and would return.

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!
