Love this place

We enjoy popping in for lunch at Vovo Telo. The food is always top quality and the service great. Love their bread and butter pudding. You can't go wrong when choosing to have a meal here.

We love going to Vovo Telo at any opportunity. Waitors and waitresses are friendly. The food is always delicious. They definitely make the best creamy scrambled eggs in town. The coffee is also delicious!

This trendy spot is still right up there being one of the top places in PE for a good cappuccino and a quick bite of something to snack on. Situated centrally in Richmond Hill it has both indoor and outdoor seating under cover on the balcony as well some tables out in the garden. A steady group of regulars ensures... More

A guest and I had a light lunch at Vovo Telo last week out on the verandah and really enjoyed our brunch. The coffee is divine and we could not resist buying a few cakes on our way out !!!

We loved it here. We were made to feel very comfortable. We visited a few times whilst on holiday in Port Elizabeth. Each time the food was wonderful, staff attentive and good with the kids. Lots of little extras: blankets for when we sat outside, and extra slices of lemon for our little ones drink, all done without having to... More

The staff, while a bit distracted at times (you can't really blame them...it can get quite chaotic in there), always make up for their mistakes most apologetically and are all very friendly. While the pasteis de nata are average,... More
