I don't normally post comments, but I obliged to say how dissatisfied I was with this restaurant. Six of us say down to a supposedly nice meal like previous experiences. The waiter ordered the starters and mains at the same time. Our mains eventually got brought to us way over an hour after ordering. The waiter forgot to order the... More

Late lunch, or very early super - stopped off here and what a great choice it turned out to be......great T-Bone special with great chips at only R 85, with partner also enjoying the grilled hake as well. Portuguese food lovers will not be disappointed and lots of specials add some truly great bargains and value too!

Did not expect to eat at this restaurant but decided to try it out because the parking lot was full....now I know why. Friendly and helpful staff. Decor is retro Portuguese style. Reminded me of the restaurants in Mozambique. Ordered the Peri peri spring chicken and Spanish style lemon chicken. The food was really good! I will definitely go again.... More

Amazing home style meals that are not too pricey for what you get. Had the beef curry and it was really spectacular!!!

Excellent venue for lunch or dinner. Be prepared to have garlic on your breath the next morning. Lots of parking and an excellent variety of seafood and fish.

Our waitress could not get a thing right. Firstly she did not bring all the drinks that were ordered. I asked for still water and lemon,... More
