“Just average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

The food was just average, the service below standard and the place just needs a bit of a shake up. I think they have existed for too long and are just relying on their position (which is nice) and history. We drove quite far to go and try them but was ever so slightly disappointed (even though we had good time there as it was our first time in Melville in many years).

We think we saw someone there that could be the manageress (a lady with glasses and a very nice body) but she just sat there while the waiters took a long time to serve the food.

I will go there if I am in the area but I wont make it a "destination" again. Off to try the next Portuguese restaurant in JHB!

“Tasty well priced food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

We ate dinner here. We ordered 2 starters (which were large enough portions not to need a main) and they were fresh, tasty and well priced. Nice sitting out on the street and watching life go by.

“Be there on Tuesdays”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2011

Tuesdays are quiznights and the place will be packed. Teams will get a plate of snacks and a shooter to start the evening with.

I chomped down an affordable and very decent steak with chips. Someone else in our party had an, also very affordable, and good, plate of garlicky/creamy snails.

The menu is somewhat limited, though. Nevertheless, recommended.

“Very average.. Border line with poor..”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2011

A pleasant enough cafe/restaurant when you walk in.. However the food is nothing special and the service is VERY slack/tired. Not much of an atmosphere either.
I wouldn't recommend this place..
