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.

We ate dinner at the Square Spoon. The food was very tasty and the service was very quick. They gave us good recommendations and we were very pleased with the seafood curry that we ordered.

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!
