Whenever I end up in joburg I just have to pay this franchise of their restaurant a visit. We've had the mixed meat platters in the past and I especially look for the beef rib

Limited menu choice with 3 kinds of meats to select from. The seafood option is not bad and the Portuguese chicken is great. Venue location not great interior quite small. Service not up to much. Food was passable the chicken was tastier than the prawns.

Adega Fordsburg, under new management is setting a bar higher in taste and service. It's about Portuguese cuisine but with a wide choice that will satisfy most pallets. Enjoyed the food and will not disappoint. It's important to book for good seating. 4/5
