There's nothing like sipping a cold beer from the deck of Voorstrandt with its superb view across a vast, peaceful stretch of beach. Very casual, laid-back atmosphere and good service. Sadly our food (Seafood Pasta and Seafood Curry) was disappointingly ordinary with a dearth of actual seafood. A pleasant experience nevertheless. Custom is brisk, especially in holiday season, so booking... More

What a treat on the beach! Been there a couple of times and very time was a huge treat, good food, great view! To sit and watch the sunset over the sea while having a glass of wine is just food for the soul! Staff very friendly, a place not to be missed when in Paternoster!

Decided to try Voorstrand out on our last night in Paternoster and I'm glad we did. Service was fast and attentive and food well prepared and presented. All in all a good meal out and a perfect sunset location which the kids enjoyed as well. Only gripes were that the fish on my platter was over cooked and they don't... More

We simply enjoyed a light lunch. Seafood platter. Fresh oysters - perfect. Calamari - tender and delicious. Snoek samoosa. Dipping sauces. Good wine selection with a wide selection 'by the glass'

Another restaurant, open air and inside seating on the beach. Good food. Fast service and very friendly owner and waitresses. Had the snails for lunch and craft beer.

Eight of us had lunch together. Service was frendly and speedy and we were well looked after. A bit chilly when it's cold, but blankets are supplied

Had what can only be described as a very poor lunch. There is nothing lightly battered about the Calamari and it felt and tasted like it was mass cooked and deeply fried. Prawns shocking and Hake was dry. One thing this restaurant does have is fantastic views. Stick to pub grub here and sure you won't be disappointed...

Had lunch. Service was terrible, we had to keep calling our waitress over to get service. Waited a long time for the food, which was very disappointing after hearing all the reviews about this place. My 14yr old had seafood pasta. Looked so unappetizing. Swimming in oil. It was inedible. Hake had a strange spice on it which took away... More
