“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014 via mobile

Really cosy and the food was great. Always a good sign when you find a full restaurant that requires booking a few days in advance.

“Lovely Family Restaurant-Great food.”

A restaurant with a good atmosphere, great food and selection of good wines. Highly recommend, you may need to book ahead as always busy! The feet talk.

“A Long Lunch With Old Friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Met two guys one of whom I hadn't seen for around 15 years. My first visit to this restaurant located in a small but busy shopping centre near the Randburg Magistrate Court. Good selection of wines on the list and the Diemersdal Sauvignon Blanc '13 was good and cold on a hot Joburg afternoon. The restaurant has an authentic Portuguese menu which was refreshing after visiting a number of others in and around Jhb recently. Two of us ordered the Fajoeda which is a pork and bean stew. What a lovely surprise, and what a mountain of food!! The service at 1920 was pretty good and the manager new exactly what was going on around him, which is also a refreshing change for some of Joburg's restaurants. All in all, a great afternoon and we will certainly return there.

“Reasonable cheap food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

A hospitable host and home cooked food. Not five star but good wholesome food. Service average. Wines reasonably priced. If you are looking for authentic Portuguese food in the Randburg area this is the place to go but it is not five star! It is always busy and I think that is because of the reasonable prices for the food. We keep on going there when we want a good and reasonably priced meal.
