“Best ribs in town”
Reviewed September 12, 2012 via Local Picks

Go there at least every 2 weeks. No frills, only delicious food. Can take your own liquor. Jose and his wife is always so friendly.

Very basic setting but relaxed. Excellent chicken, prawns are superb, calamari very good as well. Only negative would be the invariably long (=long) wait....

“Great ribs and calamari”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

A little bit noisy but with food tasting that great no one minds. The owner is born and bred in Lisbon Portugal (a very nice man to chat with). The restaurant is quite central, close to the nelson Mandela Soccer Stadium.
