Everything was superb on this family restaurant from the friendly service and the great food to the wine and the cozy atmosphere. Reasonably priced. We loved it and we will return.

Was there last t year and this year once again. Nice and fresh seafood. Also a lot of alternative food. Seafood platter is my favorite order. Good beers and wine. Every time a good place to ear and sit.

I love this place! Wonderful ambiance, and the best seafood espetada I've ever had.But you can't go wrong with anything you order. A brilliant place to eat hearty, socialize and come away feeling like you've been someplace special.

Been here on a few previous occasions, and always find it thoroughly enjoyable. The only downside is the area in which it is situated, which could be quite scary at night, however this restaurant has been here since 1975 so it carries all the history at the current location. On this occasion we were 6 guests and everyone praised the... More

The food and the service is great and of high quality. Excellent atmosphere and reasonably priced. This family restaurant is really superb. We highly recommend it. There is a wide variety of food on the menu plus a well stocked wine list. We love this place.

Every July Parreirinha has the best birthday specials. (Bookings open in May for July). R89 for 12 prawns. To be perfectly honest I know there were othet specials available but come on! It's a Portuguese restaurant with great prawns! I didn't even glance or consider looking at another item on the menu. The place is packed with great atmosphere! In... More

After hearing so much about this place, I have to say that I'm a bit disappointed after my visit. Not sure what made this place so famous. The restaurant is basic. The food is good but not amazing. And not cheap, also.

Just enjoyed a spectacular lunch and the annual birthday specials. It has to be the best value for money in Jo'burg. Pity it is only 1 month of the year. Booking is essential if you can get a reservation as people come from all over Jo'burg for the birthday specials. 12 x Prawns at R 89.00, Peri Peri chicken at... More

As you enter this Portuguese restaurant in one of Johannesburg's oldest suburbs a typed foolscap warns that it's hours are 12-5, and that they are booked up so please leave by then. I scoffed. I was wrong. We left at four in the afternoon, merry with wine and replete with prawns (you'd call it shrimp in the US). The daily... More
