Very basic menu, bacon was terrible "very thick and difficult to cut". Not many appetizing options. There are so few restaurants offering bfast in paternoster. It would be wise for them to give a few more options.. like bacon, avo, sausage,croissants, scrambled eggs or something besides the very basics.. could also be a bit more generous with portions. Other than... More

Tried for 3 day to get a booking and finally we could do a lunch. Don't know if I could say it was worth the wait,very average greek salad and very average hake.. Tried the calamari as well and that was probably the winner for the day... The fact that they were the 4th restaurant in 3 days not to... More

We made a booking at Skatkis for 6 people for lunch thinking it would be full because of the public holiday. Upon entering, we stood at the entrance without being greeted, despite being seen by waiters. We were eventually shown to our table and sat down for about 10 minutes. We eventually went to the bar to order our drinks... More

We went there on our first night in Paternoster expecting a treat because we've been to Skatkis before. What a let-down. It spoiled our first day here. The calamari tasted ok but very small size for a main and the fries were worse than McDonalds. The snoek was ok, but nothing else on the plate except perhaps 1/3 of a... More

We were lucky to get a table here as the other restaurants in Paternoster were fully booked. The view is lovely but unfortunately the food was a let down. The white wine we ordered wasn't chilled and our starter mussels arrived cold. The calamari main was nice but the snoek arrived lukewarm, disappointing. Even our coffee order was wrong...not great...

Whoever owns this place has no clue whatsoever. Why seat people when you are going to ignore them afterwards. We sat for 35 minutes before giving up and leaving. Watching the staff and lack of management is a painful experience. Deer caught in headlights looks on all faces. What was even more painful: the few plates that came out of... More

Our visit was during the winter months, so some of the other restaurants with more interesting menus were closed for winter. Skatkis was open, we were hungry, so we decided to sample the food. Sat on the patio. It was closed with plastic blinds on account of wind and this obstructed and blurred the view; the view probably being the... More

Terrible service! Drinks took forever to come! As if the waiters do not really want to serve you! Not a great vriety to choose from as they were sold out on 2 of their signature dishes! Will definately not be going back there!

This restaurant has a great view of the sea..the location is 10/10 But that is where it ends There is no sign of management present. ..there are a number of mis guided staff offering half hearted help....it may be the year end...but this should be a great time to generate good reward for good service. ..by nature I tip 15%...
