My wife & I had dinner at the Noisy Oyster this week and were blown away by the friendly service and the quant outside area with bright decor & fireplaces. We enjoyed the fresh Oysters & calamari to start followed by the Kingklip dish & seafood Latso which was really tasty. The Kingklip was by far the best dish of... More

Everyone we told that we were going to Paternoster asked if we are going to eat at the Noisy Oyster and everyone we met on our holiday asked if we had already eaten at the Noisy Oyster. We had been warned to book well in advance which we did. We were not disappointed. Noisy Oyster is great despite not having... More

Brilliant ambience! Lovely setting! Quirky quotes! Simply superb meal! I can highly recommend the oysters (goes without saying), Seafood Laksa and Lemon Cheesecake for a leisurely and exquisite eating experience! The Noisy Oyster was without a doubt the culinary highlight of my ten-day solo trip along the West Coast, where seafood was aplenty and wonderful restaurants abound. I will definitely... More

Whole roasted fish. Sirloin. Vegetarian option. All winners. Excellent waitron. Lovely atmosphere. The chilly night air off set by open braziers and hearths. Adequate wine... More

What a wonderful experience. Small, charming, cozy, outdoorsy and arty. The food portions are tiny and pricey but definitely worth it. You must book a month in advance, or at-least 2 weeks. They usually close in winter and then they also change their menus which means you are in for a surprise every year! If you are going to eat... More

We had a lovely meal at the Noisy Oyster - quirky little restaurant that makes for a delightful atmosphere. Only disappointment was that the muscles were out of stock but the Springbok shank made up for it. Would highly recommend it

The setting and ambiance are great, and the service was friendly and excellent. As others have mentioned, the oysters were good, and nice and big! Three of us had the Laksha platter. Very tasty but a little disappointing in that the 3 prawns were perhaps slightly overcooked and dry, and only 3 muscles was a bit disappointing. One of us... More
