Visited this exotic restaurant with two friends, the ambience menu list and the hosts are all warm and excellent. We had nice red wine and T-Steak Beef, which was out of the world. A must visit in Manzoni.

The oldest Portuguese restaurant in Manzini, and at some point the only decent restaurant there, is quite a good one with perfectly prepared meals made to order. Highly recommended.

The good; the food was excellent; giblets & a prawn cocktail for starters, both devoured with gusto. The mains of prawn platter, seafood pasta, & a grilled chicken & prawns combo were all tasty & scrumptious. Great selection of Portuguese wines too. So fully recommended...More

I went for a dinner with friends at Gil Vicente's while in Manzini for a medical rotation. We really enjoyed our meals - delicious pasta and delicious seafood paired with excellent South African wine. Would definitely return if I ever make it back!
