Toninos is like the movie Cheers, everyone knows your name. It is cozy, friendly and the food great! Portuguese in style food Portuguese and tasty. The service is always good and the food tasty. A restaurant that has a good appeal it is a place to try, and make your regular.

Recommended as a quality purveyor of Portuguese food. We hit the prawn special! Juicy, tasty, perfectly cooked. This venue oozes history and memories.We had a great time and Tony entertained us with his magic tricks.

The pizzas and prego's are great here. I get takeaway pizza from here all the time never disappoints. Live music pub vibe it's not fancy but it's a fun time.

I would definitely recommend the Portuguese steak with egg on top washed down with a litre beer. The Staff are a little slow but you are willing to look past for such superior quality food

Bar or restaurant prices are not murderous, the customers are a mix of local dodgy bar flies to pretentious kugels, pool tables upstairs with stairs up from that level for smokers on the top deck. The food quality is not consistent, I have had great meals to very ordinary meals served there, but mostly OK.

Toninos is an authentic Johannesburg pub. The place is run by Tony and it is a hang out for locals. The barman Barney will remember your name and your order and everyday there is a special running. Monday is Pizza, Tuesday fresh namibian oysters and king prawns. The prawns come with lemon butter and lovely peri peri sauce. The food... More
