Description: An opportunity not to be missed, whilst travelling along the Route 62! In the town that makes Port Wine, we have opened a lovely Portuguese Restaurant, that specializes in Portuguese/African dishes. Voted in the top 10 restaurants in the Little Karoo region in 2014 and top 500 in SA! Local Art work on display. We bake fresh Portuguese bread daily.

We had the most amazing creamy garlic prawns starter and was blown away by the Portuguese seafood curry. Having been in the restaurant intustry, we were very impressed and had excellent service. Thank you and well done. Marcia and Sam.

Drove by this place some two months back on one of our country travels, but finally got the chance to experience it, on last week end's trip.
Coming from a similar ethnic background,( mother makes the most delicious prawn rissois, chorizos , cures hams etc ) I tend to be, slightly critical of this kind of cuisine, simple dishes , that come to life, by the marinating process used ,or not !
The chicken peri peri, lacked on that process and the calamari starters were not the flavour of the day( tiny and more chewy than succulent )Chicken livers were outstanding and the other dishes were just fine.
However, the place is impeccably well run, the best pasteis de nata in S. Africa, perfect chorizo and great bread too.
Mix the ambience, decor,outdoor seating area and owners, who are the perfect hosts .
I have spread the word and will continue doing so, what a gem in the little Karoo , pity I live three and half hours drive away or I would be there weekly.
Muito obrigado.

In our opinion; by far the best dining experience in Calitzdorp! The restaurant is run by a remarkable and talented lady of Portuguese origins and her husband, who together, have created something of diversity, attraction, and quality, in the heart of the Klein Karoo…right on the R62.
We thoroughly enjoyed our eating experience here, which was a seafood adaptation from the true Portuguese. There are other typical Portuguese dishes as well as curry on the menu, which you can read off from the chalk board above the mantelpiece.
One particular attraction, are the many interesting paintings and sketches adorning the walls, and which are also on sale. Most of the paintings were painted by the talented Maria who’s day does not seem to have enough hours. She also makes and hand paints exclusive ceramic tiles for your bathroom walls or whatever you commission her to do.
At the front of the restaurant, in the entrance, is a small counter where you can buy delicacies. Behind you, is a typical bread rack where you can choose your freshly baked, and wholesome daily bread.
Fantastic experience!
