Went here years ago and the decided to try it again. The garlic snails, the king prawns and the peri peri chicken were fantastic and good value for money. We were a large party and they didn't ask for a deposit or request that we use a set menu. The food comes out fairly quickly. On the downside, we were... More

An institution in Joburg South, patrons travel from far and wide for the Portugese cuisine and unpretentious atmosphere. This was actually my first visit ever. Overall we found the food very tasty, with an extra hint of spice. Portions were generous and certainly great value. Our guests certainly rated the prawn curry and espetada better than the competition. On the... More

I was so excited to have dinner at Parreirinha's as I had heard wonderful things about it. So excited in fact that I took my parents out to dinner. Although I loved the vibe of restaurant, the food and service left not much to be desired. I must admit the prawn cakes were amazing though and they had a good... More

To throw a spanner in the works try an omelette with cheese for a change as you cannot always have this at restaurants if it is not breakfast. It may be simple but it is filling choice and a good source of protein. Otherwise, you can request a vegetarian platter which is not on the menu as a vegetarian choice.... More

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
