Very well priced restaurant. Food is tasty and well presented. The atmosphere is good and not too noisy. The ladies lived the grilled butternut salad with biltong and the men lived the steak and biltong combo. Definately a must-visit for the carnivores among us.

My love had the Chourico and I the Very Cheesy starters. The Chourico was flaming, so be warned. The Very Cheesy was on the small side, but Very fruity with preserved figs and berries.

What a great experience. Excellent food, huge portions and very reasonable prices. You can't lose! The wine list has good choices with reasonable prices, too. A really nice touch was that the chef came to the table to see if we enjoyed our meal. I've rarely seen that happen at other places.

We had lunch at Spetada and have nothing but praise for the food, service and surroundings. Bread freshly made on the premises was an added bonus. Lunch for two, including a glass of wine and cocktail cost less than 40 Australian dollars.

Good food; seating indoors and outdoors. Table service was mediocre but the host was energetic. Recommend the outdoor area.
