Food was mediocre. Haloumi tasted like old sole of a takkie. Crumbed mushrooms were cold. The restaurant was not very busy yet the service was poor. The waiter was harder to find than the elusive Yeti.

Have popped in and out of Papa Boa and though the service is pleasant, the menu is limited and uneven. The Portuguese chicken and peri peri is truly disappointing. The slap chips are among the best in town but I can't go to a restaurant...More
