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.)

They take such care with their food, the oysters are perfectly shucked and loosened with an amazing sauce. Seafood delicious and the hot volcano chocolate dessert is incredible! Also really friendly service and great atmosphere.

Good service with friendly staff. We ordered the seafood curry and the kingklip. Both meals were exceptionally good. Desserts are a bit pricey. Overall a great experience, will return in the future.

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!
