Whilst most people feel the fact that Parreirinha's location is a drawback, I couldn't disagree more. We caught a shuttle and turned the day into an entire adventure. The food, the service, the ambiance are all out of this world. We were a table of 26, not one plate of food came out cold or late. Have to say, easily... More

Situated in the South of Johannesburg and occupying an old Police station, where you can even dine in what used to be the 'holding cells' , is the family run Parreirinha restaurant. There are many Portuguese restaurants in the South of Johannesburg, but this one stands head and shoulders above the rest. Mama oversees the cooking and the prawns are... More

Restaurant Parreirinha continues to serve fantastic, fresh and authentic food at a very reasonable price. I was first taken here in 1995 and have revisited on every visit to South Africa since - one of South Africa's hidden gems and a must visit. Do not be put off by the location. Cars parked outside on the street are very well... More

If youre looking for authentic Portuguese food in Joburg then head on down to Parreirinha Restaurant in Rosettenville Joburg. Now this is not a gay friendly promoted restaurant, but we went in a big group of homo's and were well received. The atmosphere is exactly what you would expect of a Portuguese restaurant; warm, friendly, good vibes and good food.... More

This restaurant does not have a great location but the food is really of the best I've had. I had the prawn curry and will definitely recommend it to anyone. apparently the prawn are also supposed to be great, but they were sold out when I visited there. Slightly expensive, but totally worth it. Planning to visit there again next... More

Great atmosphere and superb steak! Only disappointment was the soup, I ordered the soup of the day, which was supposedly vegetable, but it was actually pasta (and I'm no pasta fan), but I'll certainly be back!

I have visited Parreirinha over many many years. The experience is just special and takes one back to the an authentic Portuguese lunch experience. This is great value for money . We enjoyed the platter starter followed by peri peri flatly. Be warned about the " stuff in the little bottle" I will be back.

The fillet of steak that I ordered was pure perfection. The atmosphere adds lots of character and the service was very good. Ordering a salad for the table is a must. It is a very nice restaurant without being pretentious and I am glad we went with locals otherwise we would never have been able to experience such a wonderful... More
