We love this restaurant and try and go every few weeks. They also do take-aways which is a bonus. The menu is small and everything has an authentic Portuguese Flavour. can never decide what I want - it is all good. Family run with a lovely casual atmosphere. Do not think that I have ever been disappointed.

Excellent, family owned and run restaurant. Scrumptious Portuguese food at very reasonable prices. Friendly family service. We return again and again!

Peri-Peri Chicken is the best although the prawns, giblets and chicken livers are also amazing. I would recommend that all visiting and living in Umhlanga try this little Portuguese restaurant. setting is outside and a very small area inside(enough for 6) but great overall. An extra waiter could be added on busy nights just to improve the service during those periods.

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.
