Small Portuguese restaurant hidden in the village of Umhlanga. The food was great - Trinchados, Chicken, Prawns- awesome food! However, the owner and his wife are arrogant and obnoxious and could put a smile on their faces. Their son was helpful and friendly and gave good service as a waiter. We loved the food so much that we decided to order take-outs on one evening. When we phoned the owner's wife said they can do take-outs, but when we got there to order they denied what they said on the telephone.

This little hidden restaurant in Umhlanga rocks is a gem.
It is run by a father mother and their son and has only 10 tables.
It is a favourite amongst locals and I write this very reluctantly as I really do not want it to be overrun by tourists.
However to not to mention it would be criminal.
The food is fantastic, however be prepared to wait for your food, but it is worth it.
The only slight drawback is that it is pricey.
