The menu is nice and small, with enough Portuguese classics like pregos, chicken livers, the most succulent espetada and a Portuguese salad for vegetarians.
The delicious Traditional Chorizo dish, grilled and flambéed in 1920 brandy, is presented sliced and on the back of a ceramic pig. For mains, tuck into a sizeable pot of feijoada – a traditional bean-and-pork stew with beef and chorizo slices – with rice. All the individual flavours combine well with the succulent meat. It tastes like home.
The trout – with crispy skin and perfectly flaky flesh – takes 20 minutes, but it’s worth the wait. It’s grilled and served with chips and a herb-and-butter sauce.
The service is quick and efficient, with an accommodating smile and willingness to personalise the experience. The owner walks the floor, picking up errant cutlery, serving espetadas and dishing out gentle humour.
Warm, homely, authentic Portuguese with memorabilia and a soundtrack to match.
The wine list is comprehensive, with a good mix of reds and white, both Portuguese and local. Prices range from R160 to R 540 for local wines and from R119 to just under R2000 for wines like the Glenwood Unoaked Chardonnay.
This is a lovely surprise for first-time visitors, worth the drive into Randburg. Booking is recommended.
