Yay ! Finally a nice restaurant in Benoni! and the bonus... they dont offer creamed spinach and butternut as the veg, (which most other places do and I am sure that we are all so tired of ? ) The food is very tasty, it has a viby atmosphere and a nice sealed off , sound proof area for the kids. Staff are friendly and I love it when a portuguese resturant is actually run by a portuguese person , then you know its going to be good food. The layout and design is stunning and you dont feel as if you are in a shopping center - you almost feel as if you are dining in the wine cellars of portugal . I love the couches in the waiting area - so comfy and homely. You must give it a try :)

From the outside, you might be deceived as to the experience waiting on you! A beautiful interior with enough light giving it a Mediterranean feel or darker corners for the love birds. Friendly and helpful staff. Very, very fast service! Scrumptious starters and mains. We are definitely going back!

Really a very good restaurant serving tasty food. Excellent lunch time specials. Fresh bread rolls served with every well prepared meal. Salads fresh and crispy. Meat prepared to your taste. Staff very friendly and efficient. Atmosphere good at lunch or dinner. Worth a second or more visits.

Brand new restaurant, excellent meat and very nice staff. The owner has moved to SA from Portugal 5months ago. Nice atmosphere and reasonable price (average for SA, low comapred to EU standards). Recommended.
