Seven of us had a lovely relaxed lunch. Service was good and the food (Trinchado, Espatadas and chicken) was fabulous. And cheap. We loved the “rustic” decor. It gives the restaurant wonderful character. Looking forward to coming back when next we’re in South Africa.

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...More
