Portuguese food at it's best!!! Service is average but acceptable. If you've spent a little too much for the month then you will definitely enjoy the pricing. Well worth a visit. Make sure that Manny serves you a Celeste special during your visit. More than 2 call an Uber!!

Very bust, on a Friday night there's always a wait. Excellent Portuguese chicken and delicious chicken livers, served with tasty pickled vegetables

Location: dodgy - but guarded and secure Decor is a bit ditsy and dated, Service a bit slow. Sometimes a bit noisy, not a romantic venue. Food is always fantastic and the value for money is incredible.

A true gem. Don't let the location put you off. Your car is safe and guarded. This restaurant has no frills. Plastic table cloths, decor from the past, but man the atmosphere is electric. People go there for a fun time and great food. Nosiy as anything, top notch Portuguese food at a fraction of what you would pay in... More

Lovely spot! The food is absolutely excellent and really well priced, the prawns and trinchado were both fantastic. Quite a drive for us from Jhb north but totally worth it.

Met the JHB boys at Madeira bar on Saturday night. A busy Portuguese style restaurant with TV's to watch the game. The food is amazing. Cut up chicken, Espetada and some fish makes for the best "platter" while enjoying some cold ones. Table next to us had a birthday celebration and the party atmosphere in the restaurant was just perfect.... More

Been going here for years - best food, best atmosphere and lets not forget a "Celeste Special". The trinchado is the best, but their pepper steak - that sauce is to die for.

Been visiting this little family owned and run restaurant for over 4 years and I never get tired of it. Hidden away in the southern suburbs of Johannesburg, this is one of those places that you visit purely on recommendation. The atmosphere is unrivaled with people laughing and talking and having a good time, the food is delicious; generous portions... More
