If you like your Portuguese food flaming hot, opt for nothing less than the hot option here – anything less won’t tickle your taste buds. You’ll be welcomed with fresh bread rolls only after ordering your meal, so make it snappy if you’re hungry. You’ll find all the usual suspects on the Portuguese menu. Think chicken livers in a tomato-based sauce, prawn, chicken or tuna rissols, flaming chorizo and a saucy prego trinchado for starters.

For mains, choose a generously portioned dish from a long list of house specialities. The crab curry is a popular choice, but comes with a lot of work – and mess. Other specialities include Lisbon’s traditional prawns in a portion of 10, fried in a beer sauce, and the Churrasqueira steak, aka ‘the director of steaks’, grilled with ham and cheese and served with a fried egg and ‘granny’s special sauce’.

There’s a drinks menu of classic cocktails such as cosmopolitan, Long Island iced tea, margaritas and mocktails. Wine and beer is also available; however, there’s no list for these. Cheekily, the menu states that prices are subject to change without notice.

The space is large and busy, but staff are fast and friendly. You never wait too long for your food or a drink and if there’s any delay in the kitchen or at the bar, it’s communicated. Sharing meals isn’t allowed and if you choose to ignore this, you’ll be charged an extra 40% for each person who shared the meal, unless they’re children.

Relaxed and full of families. One of the drawcards of A Churrasqueira is the outdoor play area for kids to play safely – it’s enclosed, close to the indoor and outdoor dining areas and there’s a childminder to look after your little ones.

Their homemade sauces are available to purchase, in case you just can’t get enough.

    I love this place when i feel for some peri peri chicken, prawns and the works. Lovely for family and friends to meet, no one will walk out hungry ever, from starters to main perfectly done food. Oh the best thing ever is that custard slice its to die for, well for me anyway, haha.
    Prefer previous venue in Rosettenville. Disappointed that it has become so commercialized, and food isnt as great anymore :(
    I am really unsure as to how people rate this as “the best food I’ve ever had”. Are we missing something or are our standards too high? 4 people, tough, tasteless ribs at R200. Rump steak supposed to be 400g looks like a prego/minute steak, even to the point where the owner admits thta it looked too small and would add ‘another piece’...all chewy and bland at R160. Chicken breasts at R120 so bland it wasnt possible to say if it was lemon herb or peri peri. Prawn & Calamari combo best described as tiny and chewy, respectively at R160. Never again. Huge disappontment and grossly overpriced.
    Best food I have ever had. Stunning restaurant. New Magnum milkshakes are amazing!!!!!!
    Parking HUGE problem!!!!!! The owner clearly did not do his homework!!! Parking is minimal and dangerous on Hennie Alberts
