“Wonderfully Basic and Relaxed”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

This is an example of a restuarant that has got it right.The Decor is what it is, but Good, Great, Awesome food and friendly service. I had heard lots about the Tavern and finally I was taken their by friends. We were treated like regulars and I could have had the other half of my peri peri chicken. Definitly put this on your itinarary if you are tired of the fancy expensive white table cloth affair. I'll be back

“Dependable & lively”
Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

Go here for good dependable Portuguese food in the city centre. Trinchado's are a MUST! But be aware, you will not be able to hear your dining partners on nights when there is live music.

“Must visit in Cape Town”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Good quality, authentic portuguese food. Resturant has been around for ages. No frills and really busy on a Friday, can't get in without a reservation, even for lunch.

“Off the Main Street - Great Food”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

If you're shopping or hiking around the Company Garden area, this is a great lunch spot off the main streets. The grilled calamari and other specialties are tasty and well prepared.

Don't be fool by the unpretentious (even shabby) ambience. The food is first rate.
