Reviewed February 19, 2013

Great food, especially if you have big appetite. The building is very basic but the atmosphere more than makes up for it. You have to take your own drinks with you. Great night out!!!

“Best Portuguese Food in the world”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

This is a very unusual restaurant. You take your own drinks and you share your long bench tables with other people. It is a lot of fun and you get to enjoy platters of prawns, ribs and chicken pieces that you will not find anywhere else. The quality of the food is exceptional. Prepare for a long evening!

Be sure to visit. Shrimp, ribs and chicken - it really is all you need for a delicious meal + atmosphere. Table book or necessarily will have to queue.

“GREAT GREAT GREAT”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

We go to this restuarant at least twice a week, and have been going for the last four years. The food is exceptional, and even after spending a month in mozambique, after crossing the border, we telephoned and made a booking
