    Had Sunday lunch there. What an incredible experience. Service was excellent and West Coast friendliness VERY special. Food was superb and well prepared - discussion and explanation by chef appreciated 😊. Will see us again, for sure

    Nestled in the little fishing village of Paternoster, Oep Ve Koep offers foodies the joy of West Coast inspired food in an unpretentious and down-to-earth setting. Known for foraging unusual ingredients from the surroundings, chef Kobus van der Merwe describes his food as heritage cuisine and we we’re curious to taste and see this new approach to fine dining.

    Crowned as the Nederburg Rising Star in 2014 his food has a strong seasonal connection to the land and sea and items like seaweed, klipkombers and dune celery forms part of his ever-changing menu.

    We had a 5-course lunch for R295, which included West Coast Oysters, Saldanha Bay mussel soup, kudu, kabeljou and a scoop of milktart-infused icecream. Every course, except the dessert, had a unique West Coast ingredient which complimented and enhanced the meal with flavour and texture. The unusual additions of these local indigenous ingredients transformed the ordinary staples into finely crafted taste sensations.

    All set in a simple and ordinary courtyard, we enjoyed the small-town atmosphere and the slow-pace of a relaxed lunch. The average selection of wines and craft beers were disappointing to a Capetonian, but nevertheless we recommend a visit to this unique and one-of-a-kind restaurant.

    For R250 the tasting menu included 1 oyster, 4 muscles in a broth with haf a plum, half a bokkom (pilchard) and I seem to remember the other half of that plum, a sweecorn bobotie (sans meat) no bigger than a mars bar, and a 3cm diamer roll of icecream with scrapings of meringue. Think "Test Kitchen but then add the distinct feeling of being ripped off.
    I have eaten at Oep ve Koep about 6 times. It is a unique dining experience with excellent interpretations of old classics, using locally sourced herbs and products - many indigenous. Do not expect 'n bord kos. Do expect to want to eat everything on the small menu. The wine list is thoughtful and local, and the service is excellent and friendly. Prices are very reasonable, considering the effort that goes into every course, from the complimentary snacks of warm bread, farm butter and an extra tidbit, to the moerkoffie to end. It is essential to book.
    A truly remarkable ensemble of different tastes by a somone who is clearly a master at making the seemingly incongruity of different local fare work together in absolute harmony! Every serving is a veritable work of art that must be savoured for its difference tastes and textures. Not recommended for children who would prefer a pizza up the road instead at a fraction of the cost.
