Was once upon a time our favorite Restaurant in the area. However, recently they've become expensive! They do have an excellent peri peri sauce which goes exceptionally well with their wonderfully fresh Portuguese rolls. If you're a prawn lover and prepared to pay top dollar, they're hard to beat.

Although the food was fairly tasty, the restaurant was extremely noisy and the waiter n attendance was not always around when we needed him. Food choices are ordinary and good for a midday weekend meal.

The lunch specials are really great value, but that's not all they're about. The feel is classy/casual and the food never disappoints. Some of the best waiting staff for miles around.

We have been to Beira Alta on numerous occasions. It is by far my favorite restaurant and will go there without thinking twice. Food is absolutely amazing. There is always consistency which is key in any restaurant.Staff is friendly and the setup is very welcoming.

Stopped over for a quick lunch and as always was not disappointed. The food is always fresh and well prepared and served efficiently. One of our favorite dining spots. Seafood always impresses and the chicken peri peri is scrumptious. Best chicken livers anywhere. Keep up the excellent service.

Been coming to Beira Alta for years for their prawns. However this has been the first time I have been disappointed with their prawns. The sauce was not up to scratch. The size of the prawns were inconsistent. Three servings of prawns and different size prawns. Beira Alta is losing what made them famous
