Although the restaurant is not situated in the best of areas, everything else about it is perfect. The service is always good and the food superb. Their birthday specials in July are always unbelievable. Be sure to book.

I was introduced some time back to parreirinha by some work colleagues. I live and work on the other side of Johannesburg but have made it my business whenever I am in town to make a turn past parreirinha. I have searched joburg for nice seafood and often do find quality but never of the consistency I find at Parreirinha. Add to this the chicken and you will find it hard to beat. The atmosphere is rustic perhaps a little bit more touristy than other restaurants down south but definitely not rough as described in other reviews.

An absolute must for visitors, you need to book and prices are not for free but the experience is well worth it. Young and old you will enjoy it.

I am a serious fan of Bacalhau a la bras and have been tasting this dish in several portuguese restaurants in town. By far Parreirinha is the best here in Johannesburg. Besides, portions are much bigger than other restaurants what makes the experience be really satisfying. I decided to rate it as four stars due to the location.

What a lovely restaurant - now one of my favorites! Delicious food and lovely wine and reasonable. We had the prawn cakes to start followed by a mixed platter of prawns (best I have had in Johannesburg) chicken and espetada served with rice and chips! We will definitely go back and would highly recommend it. Well worth the journey!
