We booked a table for our party of 4, was very excited to take my family there. But when we got to the door, I had booked for the wrong night!! No problem, they managed to accommodate us, and we had a fantastic evening. Thank you!!. Decor is quite quirky, the ambiance is great. Beautifully warmed by open fires. Food... More

I must stop visiting paternoster at the beginning of the week when the Noisy Oyster is closed! This is still my favourite restaurant in Paternoster. I love the ambience, sat outside amongst the fairy lights. The service is always with a smile. This time I chose 2 starters as I had eaten lunch next door at Junk and Disorderly. I... More

We booked this restaurant based upon its number one rating on Trip Advisor. We have been to paternoster a few times but never eaten here. Restaurant is unassuming from the outside but warm and welcoming when you walk in. It was a particularly chilly evening and we were a little surprised to see that the restaurant was effectively an outside... More

Starters and mains were all very good here and done with a flare. Service was excellent and all the staff we encountered were friendly. Book in advance to ensure you don't miss out on a great dinner.

The ambience is wonderful; fairy lights, candles and interesting decor. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and we had a fabulous evening. Local black mussels are superb and my husband loved his Chalmar sirloin steak (so tender) and my Laksa seafood dish had divine flavours. We would definitely go back, the Noisy Oyster exceeded our expectations!

You should book your table well in advance and you will not be disappointed with the whole experience. We have been a couple of times and continues to go back year after year on our annual visit to this quaint town. We were a party of 8, served by Pieter, who made us laugh so much. The gnocchi was light... More
