Description: Naturally Portuguese cuisine varies from region to region, but fresh fish and shellfish are found on virtually every menu. The national dish is “Bacalhau”- dried, salted cod. The Portuguese has been obsessed with it since the early 16th century, when their fishing boats reached Newfoundland. The sailors salted and sun-dried their catch to make it last the long journey home, and today there are said to be 365 different ways of preparing it, one for each day of the year. The Portuguese word “tasca” describes quaint cafes, bistros or tavernas. These small, well known restaurants are delightful places to eat. Good food is always prepared with love and consummate skill, using the freshest ingredients available. If the quality of some ingredients are not up to standard, they will not be served. At a tasca we prepare each meal from order, so we ask you to be patient and to relax and enjoy your stay with us the Portuguese way… saude !

On business from PE and my agent suggested we try Gaby'z. An excellent choice, always know you are onto a good thing when eating early evening and the restaurant is very busy upon entering. Menu is focused and covers a variety of dishes with emphasis on Portuguese cooking. Our waiter was excellent, always to hand but unobtrusive. Quality of food was excellent and prices were fair. All in all an excellent evening was had by all and certainly look forward to returning on next visit to Durban

One of the best restaurants to find spicy Portuguese cuisine. The signature chicken and prawn combo is delicious, and you will no doubt be back for more. Staff are friendly and efficient and offers wonderful ambience with Gypsy Kings being the favourite background music. Just go once- and you will be hooked!!

Direct owner involvement shows as waitrons are well trained and attentive. A friendly, almost homely atmosphere with good food and not over the top wine prices. The menu is interesting with good variety - traditional Portuguese and some Italian dishes. Also known for their excellent sea foods. Look out for the home made peri peri sauce.

Real value for money. I will be back to try some of those interesting dishes on the menu.
