A former polce station which has been converted into a restaurant serving Portuguese style cooking - specialising in seafoods. Awesome seafood kebabs.. Location not that great - we fondly refer to the restaurant as 'That dodgy place'

Service great and the food delightful. A Portuguese restaurant not to be missed. If you need to have the best peri peri chicken in SA , this is the place to go. Prices are very reasonable.

The experience that we had was shocking. We reserved a table for 6:00 on a Saturday evening and were put in a small room with a party of 20. We could not hear our selves talk – literally. We asked to be moved and despite there being a number of empty tables, we were told that that was the only... More

Simply the best Portuguese restaurant in Johannesburg. This is the 3rd time I have dined here and have never been disappointed. This time we were a big group of 28, nevertheless, the service was very good and the food all came out at the same time and was excellent, from the steaks to the seafood. The prawns, an all time...

Even though the area is a bit dodgy the visit here is absolutely worth it! Prawn cakes the best in the universe. Amazing seafood options. Hidden gem in Johannesburg.

Be sure to book at this very popular restaurant. Service is very good and food, great. Prawns done in lemon butter were very soft. Portion sizes large as the dishes are served with rice and chips. You will not leave hungry. Only negative is that smoking is aloud in the vibey section of the restaurant.
