“Always a pleasure!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2013

This is the ideal venue to share with good friends. It always has a good vibe, and maybe not the place for a quiet romantic evening. The menu has a wide range of authentic Portuguese/Angolan dishes - a remember to ask for the "Gindungo" - a fiery home-made chili condiment. My personal favorite is the seafood rice or seafood pasta - but be warned, it comes in decent portion sizes. Another favorite is the tripe in a tomato sauce, or the spice chicken livers or gizzards. Beef or seafood espetadas are also good, and the selection of fresh prawns (ask the waitress to show the different sizes before ordering).

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2013

Had a final meal here after 6 weeks travelling around Namibia.Well priced and excellent quality.
Great service although we ate early, 6pm.
Good menu selection.
We ate Kudu, perfectly cooked and melted in the mouth.
Highly recommended.
We did order extra side order of vegatables but not really needed as plenty already on the plate and good size portions of meat as well.
Much preferred over Joes Beer House across the road.
Park opposite in front of the Post Office.

“Great eating place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013

We got a table without prior booking, I suggest going at ca. 6.30pm to get a table.Service was friendly and prompt and the food was very good, well presented and tasty. My steak was outstanding and the desserts good.

“Great Seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

Great service with a wide choice of fresh fish. Extremely efficient service and great wine list. Enjoyed the opportunity to go and pick out my own piece of fish that was amazingly fresh for an inland location. Great list of traditional Portuguese dishes. Will definately go back.
