Wonderful supper at Square Spoon. We had the Angelfish special and the Lentil and chickpea curry, both dishes were outstanding. The cheesecake and the chocolate fondant desserts were equally good. Fantastic service, highly recommend

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!
