'Noisy Oyster' is a well established and deservedly popular venue in Paternoster which we have visited over the years. Our most recent visit, to what appears an unassuming restaurant from outside, leads you into this atmospheric space, owner/managed with the delightful Debbie and her well trained and efficient staff. The menu has kept pace with change, so expect some interesting... More

We were booked into the noisy oyster by our guesthouse owner, and we were very glad he did so. The restaurant is quite quirky, with table dotted about the place. The staff were very friendly, and the service at that busy time of the evening was excellent. The seafood we had, a big plate of mussels, followed by kingklip were... More

Make sure you book in advance, as this restaurant fills quick. This restaurant has been put together with a great sense of humour, chalk boards with humerus quotes are around the walls and the array of umbrellas hanging from the ceiling are cool. No humour is taken with the service you receive from the staff, they give exceptional care. The... More

Due to the reviews , we booked a table.It seems they must be battling with fridge / kitchen facilities as the oysters were not only warm, but two out of the six I could not eat ( very suspect ). Salad was warm.Muscles tasteless.Very dissapointing.

Takes advantage of the fantastic seafood on its doorstep and may be the best choice in a small village where the choices are varied. Three courses were consumed and there were four fresh fish options although carnivores wouldn't miss out either. Waitress was charming and very efficient but book as they don;t overdo the covers although they said it was... More

Great ambiance - we sat in the courtyard with several fireplaces, candles, little white lights . Fantastic food - we had the sirloin and it was tasty. The owner came and helped us with a wine selection. Attentive service. Recommend!! (be sure to book ahead)

Thank Beth L
