Authenticity is a big deal for the Prue Leith trained chef/patron with simplicity and fantastic produce his preference.

There’s an excellent choice of fish or meat depending on your preference. And menu aside, they also have a blackboard of specials which could be a mean plate of fresh sardines with a helping of boiled potatoes and veggies which cannot be missed. This can be followed by a serving of prawns grilled to perfection served with a fresh salad. Or if you go the meat route, the delights are many with chouriço, chicken livers, trinchado and buffalo wings on the starter menu and for mains, chicken or beef espetada, a baby chicken (remember those?) or the usual steak options (300g) with a choice of either fresh cut chips, boiled potatoes, Portuguese side salad, Portuguese rice, creamed spinach (the real deal) or mixed vegetables. As a light meal, there’s chicken or beef prego or a great selection of sandwiches, fresh or toasted. A Rabanadas (Portuguese French Toast)with buttermilk dipped, fresh cut strawberries, bacon, maple syrup and mascarpone cream has to be on the list as a decadent interlude.Don’t miss out on the sweet stuff with either the donuts or a serving of pastéis de nata (two mini pastries per portion). It’s melt in the mouth. With a cocktail bar on the premises, their drinks menu is innovative and fun with a striking wine list that offers different by-the-glass options, always a good option.

Because the dine options in this part of town are many, they have to be on their toes which means diners are well cared for with snappy service.

It’s contemporary Portuguese café style with an upstairs TV and bar area which accommodates a rowdier crowd when necessary.

Best for…
It’s all about the real deal. Authentic Portuguese cuisine is what they favour. It’s kept simple but oozes with flavour.

    Great Spot!
    After an extremely disappointing first visit shortly after they opened we decided to give the restaurant a second chance. Unfortunately the second experience was even worse than the first. The warning signs were there when the draught beer I ordered was barely chilled, the calamari starter was flavourless and slightly gritty. My wife ordered chicken livers and chips, the livers were completely overcooked altogether tough and mealy and the chips were completely inconsistently cooked (some were edible while others were dry and chewy. My baby chicken was dry and tough and the chips were same as above. When we pointed this out to the manageress she was apathetic and unhelpful. We paid and left and when we arrived back home in Centurion I discovered that the Pasteis de Nata we had ordered as a takeaway had not been packed in the bag. I returned to the restaurant and again the manageress was the same as before . Her attitude is clearly reflected in the way the kitchen staff prepares the food
    I took a friend from cape town for a light meal last night. I ordered the chicken livers peri peri and she ordered a beef prego. My chicken livers were not tasty at all. A bland brown mixture of broiled livers with peri peri from Robertson's or alike. My friends prego Ŕ90 rand was just as disspointing. The steak was lovely and soft. The buns were good but the only taste was of other Portuguese marinades or sauces. I was definitely not blown away and not left wanting to taste anything else.
    Love this space, in the heart of what is now called the Village in Pretoria.. great atmosphere. Love the old pictures on the wall, with all the subtle Portuguese hints..
