One of the few restaurants close to the place I stayed for 3 weeks. The food was reasonable, but a bit highly priced. Service was ok. Many families were there on Sunday.More

The food was delicious as always but the service was outstanding, a gentleman by the name of George was quite guest oriented and would periodically check and top up our drinks. Top notch service right there. He adds value to the establishment.More

As always, the atmosphere here was pretty good. The waiters were extremely kind and we felt catered for. Besides a small hiccup when it came to getting my change from the bill I had paid, and the chicken portions not being as big, my sister...and I had a great time! And Emmanuel, was one of the best waiters we had had in a while! I would recommend this place to a friend.More

As a regular at Paula's I decided to have our neighbourhood watch patrollers lunch here and everyone was so happy with my choice. Very good food at very affordable prices. The chicken is amazing as is the steak and fish. The portion sizes are great...value for money. The service is very good which made our lunch very memorable. Special mention must be made about the amazing garlic sauce which we all loved.More

True Portuguese Cuisine.. The aroma sat right under my nose upon entry and that for me was already a win win. Now, I never order chicken out however everyone seemed to rave about it therefore I thought I should give it a go. The flavor...ran all the way through to the bone and I had it paired up with prawns and a garden salad that was just as good. Was not too impress with the menu presentation, it being on a board with someone holding it up for me as I still struggled to read it. The Staff, Gift was incredibly alert and paid attention detail as he recommended what they considered their most popular beverages. All in all it was a great experience and it’s a place I would recommend as well as return.More

A well appointed Portuguese restaurant with a central location well suited to a casual business lunch. The service is good and food portions well balanced and very tasty. We had an enjoyable meal here and will most definitely return.
