Nice view over the bay. Relaxed atmosphere and the best cocktails. Friendly and helpful staff. The sunset from the balcony is amazing.

This establishment has bad food, waitresses who know nothing about items in their menu. The fish platter was overpriced and badly cooked. Not appetizing at all. To sum it up, this restaurant has no soul. The only thing going for it is a view.

Gorgeous place with excellent food. Great view of Paternoster and the beach. Food really good and decently priced. Breakfast is a must.

Ordered fish of the day (yellow tail ). It was overcooked therefore too dry. For the money I spent, I thought it was a bit of robbery. The milkshakes were nice, and the view good. Perhaps the cook was out for the day.

The food was okay-ish. They didn't add any salt at all. The service was terrible. The waitress appeared for only a millisecond. Order your beverages and courses all at once while she's at your table because you won't see her again.

I would say that this is a very good place to go for a lunch / have a beer after a day at the beach. But do not expect a romantic dinner and cuisine. Have to say the staff was friendly and helpful and the Oven Baked snoek was delicious (the vegetables just ok). The Hake and Chips was also... More

The main attraction is the view. The staff are friendly and welcoming. There is a fire place to keep you warm during winter. The food is average.

This restaurant has a lovely view and friendly staff. Food was OK- nothing to rave about. Not sure we will be back.

Service was excellent, very helpful. Snoek and Crayfish was to die for will come again for this meals, the view over Paternoster beach is breathtaking and to watch the local fisherman launching there boats is a story to tell.
