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

Our dinner was fantastic with a unique blend of different fruits and spices. The oysters are superb with a different twist and the curry and calamari was very good. My son insisted that we return for the desert.

After a friendly greeting from Luis we enjoyed a meal of Kingklip which was perfectly cooked and presented. Well worth a visit when in Paternoster.

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!
