I’m in Paternoster for business and on my first night I found this establishment. Of the bat, most of the restaurants closed at 19:00-19:30. They were open. The place is very homely. You can have a choice to eat both inside or outside. Inside is homely and has a home atmosphere. Outside it’s party time for more than 3-4 people. Wooden benches painted white with joined seating. The staff was great as well as the welcome by the owner. Service was quick and friendly. I had a hake and chips meal. The choice was wood burned or battered fried, a said surprise me, I got the wood cooked. Wise choice. I asked for crispy chips, it was perfect. The chips were half a wedge size. The fish was soft and juicy. I was yummy. The tartar sauce, oh my oh my, it tastes homemade. Better than any other place I have been. The portion was medium, but it did fill me. Well worth it. Albertometer:Atmosphere 8/10 It’s open and friendlyStaff 8/10 Friendly, accommodating and efficient Food 9/10 First time reviewing fish.

The Hungry Monk

Yes , there was a reason the Monk was hungry and angry , his food took FOREVER. Lord alone knows what happens in the busy season because the kitchen service in October was slowwwwwww.It’s such a super spot in a superb setting that it’s tragic their service is shocking . Now if your kitchen Is struggling or short staffed , rule one would be to notify your guests . So we ordered drinks and a really nice mocktail and then 6 staring people waited for their food. After an hour plus and much enquiring as to where the food was , it arrived . Now the food was nice and tasty - duck salad, chicken wings , calamari , spring rolls, California rolls, tofu stir fry and banana fritters - but we were hangry. And so we wolfed down the food and left . And sadly it doesn’t mind how nice a spot or how good the view , if you can’t sort your communication and kitchen out we have no reason to go back .

We visited after 15h00 for a late lunch on a Saturday, the location is perfect, overlooking the bay and the beach of Paternoster. The interior is warm with love to details and the service is very friendly. The food just blew us away, very tasty and beautifully presented, definitely value for money. We actually asked the chef to come to the table to express our satisfaction. We will be back for sure, keep up the amazing work!

Do not miss this perfect little spot . Views for days in a shabby chic setting . The food and service were first class .We had the quinoa salad, calamari, halloumi, carpaccio, mushroom pasta , ostrich . Every dish was beautifully presented with fresh ingredients and was delicious . We also loved the Homemade bread !And for dessert the malva pudding and pear and apple tart were super . The sago pudding was less remarkable. But we would go back in a heart beat .

Wolfgat

Reviewed By MatthewJHB

My wonderful wife Lisa treated me to lunch at Wolfgat in Paternoster yesterday for my birthday. Everything, literally everything, was exceptional. Firstly, the view from the patio of Paternoster bay is exquisite. Then, the beer we ordered – Queue de Lion Super Saison – was sensational… easily the best beer I’ve ever tasted. And then we came to the food. Oh. My. God. I can’t describe it as the best meal I’ve ever had because it was more than that, much more. It was a taste sensation unlike anything I’ve ever experienced, and each of the eight courses only seemed to get better and better. Chef Kobus van der Merwe and his hand-picked team of expert waitrons all work together to prepare each course. We had been asked to arrive promptly at 12.30pm which we did, but because a couple of the other tables (20 pax max) were late, we were served a snack of a mixture of finely minced limpet with nutmeg in a limpet shell on a bed of salt. Once everyone else pitched up, the standard seven course set menu began. We commenced with a sizzling pan of bokkom (dried fish)-flavoured butter with a cloth bag of homemade sourdough bread sticks which were a delicious stimulation of the palate.Next were oysters two ways: the first was a warm oyster with marinated mushrooms, seaweed and sage flowers; the second was a cold oyster “on the rocks” with grapefruit and sea pumpkin. Both dishes were just divine. Then we had black mussels in their own broth, with fresh and fermented “veld asparagus” sprinkled with fresh wood sorrel. Superb.A dish of lightly seared slices of springbok loin followed, served on a bed of pureed “heering bean” (a kind of white bean), dressed with dune spinach, kruipveigie (a form of dune vegetation) and crispy seaweed. After this we were served Wolfgat’s take on “tjokka” (the local term for calamari). They serve crispy strips of calamari with a wild garlic masala, peach mebos (dried fruit), bokkom sambal, yoghurt and sweet little red berries called slangbessie in a soutslaai leaf, which you eat as you would a soft taco. Stunning.Our final savoury course was a delicate portion of angelfish gently poached in milk and butter infused with rooibos tea leaves, under a layer of succulent seaweed. Again, delicious. We ended the meal (sorry, tasting experience) with a dessert of amasi (fermented milk) sorbet on a slice of guava with pickled cucumber, orange-buchu masala and kiesieblaar (wild mallow) and sat back in awe, delight and perfectly sated satisfaction. Lisa was driving so she had a coffee with milk and organic coconut blossom sugar and I finished the magnificent beer.Service was informal yet faultless, the restaurant was spotless, each course came on gorgeously different styles of crockery and cutlery and the modesty and humbleness of Kobus was breathtaking considering his restaurant has won such glittering international honours. The table next to us had the wine pairing, and Kobus described each glass in detail, reflecting his passion for exceptional taste. Everything he serves is sourced locally and sustainably, which I’m sure contributed to Wolfgat winning the accolades it has done (and no doubt will continue to do). A visit to Wolfgat is something I would recommend people from around the globe to do. Book a flight to Cape Town, a car, a stay in Paternoster and a visit to the finest foraging and mainly seafood taste experience ever. You won’t regret – or forget – it.If I could have given seven stars to this restaurant I would have. You have to book – and pay – months in advance, so keep checking their website.

Noisy Oyster

Reviewed By FernandoE174

We visited after reading reviews on trip advisor and thought... Why not.I do like the fact that you welcome to bring your own bottle of wine and only pay corgage which is R50. The place itself is cute with all the little lights around and very welcoming.We were shown to our table and menus was promptly laid down for us. Now I do love a bit of fish and when on the coast, I always tend to sway towards a fish dish, whether it be a starter or main. I decided to opt for the calamari starter. I'm afraid this is nothing to wright home about. Calamari was oily and not tender at all. I ate it though as I was starving. My partner had steak tartar. Well, the whole point of a steak tartar is the theatre of making it yourself at the table, mixing the steak with the confit egg yolk, capers, mustard and shallots together and enjoying the meal. None of that here I'm afraid. Steak tartar is brought on a crisp bread and came with yogurt! Yogurt? Mains we had steak accompanied by bone marrow and some chips and fish with sweet potato fries. This course was good actually which we were ever so grateful for. I will give compliment where its due and my steak was cooked to perfection and a good portion too and so was the fish dish. Put this same effort into the starters and you have a winning combination. We would have liked the owners to come and check if all was OK, if we enjoyed our meal, walk round interact with the customers perhaps and waiters to be more attentive.

Exquisite view and ambience. Service was of an excellent standard. Although the 3 course special is exceptional value for R295, we didn’t want dessert and therefore opted to share the carpaccio starter which was good.The mains were exceptional. I had the line fish and my husband had the loin of Springbok.We would definitely return. Highly recommended and good value.
