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 ...at Ŕ90 rand was just as disspointing. The steak was lovely and soft. The buns were good but the only taste was of garlic...no 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..
