Birthday celebration with my children and to Mannie and his staff, thank you! Genuine, flavoursome Portuguese fare, all prepared perfectly.

A true taste of what we as South Africans know as Portuguese cuisine. Excellent Milo Frito. Brilliantly flavoured foods. Service, friendly and efficient. We always look forward to our next visit.

Better to book in advance to avoid disappointment. We were lucky and found space on a Sunday lunch. Food is good and prices are OK, similar to other Portuguese restaurants.

Hi All. Does this restaurant have an outdoor seating area and what is it like? We love sitting outside in summer (even at night) but don't want to sit in an outdoor section if it's like an "afterthought" and plays second fiddle to the inside section. Thanks.

No outdoor seating, however, it is very pleasant inside! Worth the visit, the food is excellent
