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!

I had high expectations after reading reviews, however the food was just ok. The biggest letdown was the not so clean tables and dirty cushions. The food was average.

We accidentally stumble across this gem, walking down the road. We cannot stop raving about this place. The owner welcomed us as we walked in and chatted with us like we were locals. It was because of his friendly nature we decided to stick around...More

Great food, great venue, great service!!! Be sure to book though as this restaurant gets BUSY!!! We had to wait two days for a seating. (Try the sea bream if it's on the menu, it's to die for.)

A small place in the winter because they can't use the outer area. Owners are a man and wife who are always there. A very good seafood selection with a nice wine list. I had the tiger prawns which were wonderful. They have other non-fish...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!
