Beira Alta is another seafood-focused restaurant at Montecasino that is well worth a dining experience.

Our family has enjoyed many meals that have included seafood and their famous peri-peri chicken. The oysters, prawns, bacalao, calamari and fish, whether plain, grilled or pan-fried, are simply delicious. The Mediterranean and Portuguese influence in preparation makes every dish a winner!

Our favorite spot is upstairs on the balcony as people pass by below. This imparts a Mediterranean ambience to dining in a Portuguese restaurant. Certainly well worth a visit!

We wanted a quick meal prior to a show, so explained this to the waiter. We ordered Oysters at R28 each and peri peri chicken at R125. The oysters were sold as large, but several had only a teaspoon of meat, very disappointing. The peri peri chicken turned out to be baby chicken, and a very young one I guess by the lack of meat, I would estimate about 125-150g meat that was over cooked. The peri sauce was however very good and the service was prompt.

Came tonight because they used to have homemade chips which is rare in jhb. New owner apparently will not come back until they have homemade chips again. Food still good taste.

My boyfriend and I had dinner there, we enjoyed the ambiance and the service but can't say the same for the food. The salad was withered and his meat was underdone fortunately the dessert made up for it.
The most enjoyable part was sitting by the balcony and listening to live music from the street.
