The crayfish we ate at this place was still frozen and the prices were the highest we have ever seen for crayfish. We heard they buy crayfish from locals for next to nothing and ask this ridiculous prices in the restaurant.
I was pleasantly surprised! I have been vising Paternoster for years and have neglected this restaurant. Delicious calamari and prawns...I had a burger that was fantastic! Restaurant was busy but the service was excellent!
Very disappointing meal 20/4/2013! The location is amazing, but there is no fresh fish on the menu, all previously frozen! Difficult to understand for a fishing village! My husband had yellowtail and it was very unappetizing. I had seafood curry, which tasted wonderful, but I suspect was made from seafood mix that you can buy at Pick&Pay. There are so many other options in Paternoster, we will never return!
Had a great seafood platter with stunning views [photos available] at the Voorstrand Restaurant at Paternoster - right on the beach.
Possibly the worst restaurant in the Western Cape! Visited them a few times over the holiday. Service really poor and extremely unfriendly. Arrived one afternoon at 16,45, asked for a table for drinks and was told that they've got reservations from 18,00 onwards. They seated us in the bar area and did not even offer us a table, should we be willing to leave at 18,00.
When we asked for oysters we were told that their policy is not to serve food in the bar.
Point is that we often eat at Sevruga / le Quartier/ Beluga / Moreson / Salt and easily eat between R800 - R1200 worh of starters with drinks, for 2 people and can do this in 1 hour and 15 minutes, if required. Voorstrandt however thinks that they are so famous that they don't need this.
I am proudly South African and won't support them ever again. The manager is the worst mannered manager I have come across. The service was bad everytime we were there. The food is really nothing more than mediocre! If you eat seafood there, you may just as well buy a box of I+J hake and fry that up yourself.
Worse Cape restaurant I can think of! I would rather drive the 15 minutes to Vredenburg and eat in the mall (without sea views).
Would love to see a few other restaurants opening up in Paternoster. Suzi and Marthinus - well done for you guys!
Perfect dinner with 3 kids, management very friendly.
