DiscoverOur Story

We bring you a unique dining experience..
Explore the Paternoster beach and nestled amongst the rocks, you will find a simple white-washed fisherman’s cottage. This 80 year old building, known as ‘Gaaitjie’ has a warm, nostalgic atmosphere, true to its heritage. This unique atmosphere of tradition and comfort has inspired an eclectic menu featuring local produce, fused with contemporary influences. Our food is unpretentious and made with love, using sustainable fresh local produce as far as possible. Our decor is modest and comfortable and our unique location promises spectacular views to compliment a memorable dining experience.





Our location and views remain unbeatable
The decor is simple yet comfortable and our unique location and views remain unbeatable. We look forward to meeting Gaatjie’s current and future friends, the final and most important ingredient to the perfect meal.
