The food was terrible, the Pork Rashers were very very thin bascon and full of bones with no flavour. The pork Fillet was as hard as nails, the sole was ok, the pork chops, were also ok. No Ambience, the lighting is too bright, noise from Pub loud

Hi All

No doubt the food and service was very good. Well done :-)

The only funny, yet sad thing is the menu, the incorrect spelling of the portuguese language.

Come on guys surely this can be corrected. Portuguese is such a beautiful language so lets be proud.

Abraco e boa sorte.

Go there hungry. The portions are larger than average. We had a great lunch. They offer a combo of salad and veg instead of the normal fries. The veg is great! All of our meals were well presented and served as we had ordered. The staff were friendly and helpful. I will be back.

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!
