If in jbay make sure to visit this little place in the heart of jbay. Burgers are amazing! Actually everything is, doesn't matter what you order you will most definitely enjoy it.

Great value for money and the manager is on ball with everything.

Great little Portuguese Coffee Shop & Restaurant. The chocolate cake we had for dessert was described by my female companion as ''the best chocolate cake in the world''. Presentation of said dessert was fantastic. Background music was perfect, not too loud, not annoying. Very warm feel to the place. Looks like an expensive establishment, but the prices are very reasonable. a Jeffreys Bay Gem! Definitely worth a visit!

Since the new manager of the Portofino has taken over, Zulmira, the food is really good. Try some of her Portuguese specialties, the chicken livers, the chorizo and best of all the peri-peri Chicken. This is a wonderful addition to the J Bay food scene. Also worth trying is their other restaurant in Aston Bay - the Aston Arms - for a different scene, beautiful outdoor location near the lagoon, same good food. I will definitely be going back for more. Thanks Zulmira!

Such a cute little restaturant with the sweetest hostess and DELICIOUS food!! In true European culture, watch the world go by while sitting outside with family on a Sunday morning for yummy breakfast or keep cosy and warm with friends, sharing some wine and prawns inside by the fireplace in this elegantly decorated coffee shop! We've enjoyed every visit to this centrally located restaurant -Thanks Zulmira for your beautiful hospitality and lovely food!!
