Souvenirs, canned goods, light meals, excellent service and refreshments; delightful atmosphere and a must to visit in Paternoster!

Kobus must be away researching? we had lunch here last Thursday and were expecting much more. we booked the previous week and were asked for a R1000,00 deposit for a party of 7 people, this we took as normal for a small, delicious, in-demand restaurant. we had a very average expensive (for RSA) lunch of mussels, dry angel fish, fruit...

If you are looking for value for money...give this venue a skip. Must be one of the more expensive shops in the area. Definitely not catering for the SA tourist. The garden setting is adequate with relative okay service. Not my cup of tea but am sure the average overseas tourist might enjoy.

Took a break from strolling down Paternoster street and what a wonderful experience in the garden having cake and something to drink.

We went here for Sunday lunch. I had been there before and really enjoyed the small tasting menu, with locally foraged products. This time, however, it was a three course lunch they offered: mussels, angel fish and ice cream. The mussels were very nice, the angel fish nothing special and the ice cream very so so. Not a great deal... More

I always return to Oep when I'm in the area, and am never disappointed. The bistro has undergone some changes lately, but the ladies now running the show have managed to maintain the same excellent quality of west coast home style food that Oep is known for, all served with smiles in a relaxing and understated garden setting. What a... More

As with all the other tourist shops in Paternoster, this one is exceptionally expensive. Are they expecting only the very rich to shop there? Not for me thanks.

Feeling peckish after having returned from a beach-buggy ride, we decided to pop into this authentic little eatery. We sat in the quiet garden with quirky tablecloths and a herb garden in a boat. The waitress was friendly and efficient. The menu isn't very big and changes daily. We opted for a cheese platter and the mussel soup. These turned... More

Spent a long afternoon at oep ve koep in March 2016 with some friends. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It should be viewed more as an experience than a lunch per se, as we weren't particularly full after leaving,but were definitely satisfied. The food is tasty, unique, inventive and freshly locally sourced. We would never have tried half the things on... More

We loved the contrast between the simplicity of the setting and the extraordinary dishes. The garden setting creates a lovely relaxing atmosphere and each dish brings a tasty “fine dine” combination of surprising ingredients, usually locally sourced. We loved the fact that Chef Kobus van der Merwe visits guests at their tables and serves some of the dishes himself, always... More
