I was a Paula's Place for a private function. I always enjoy the food and this time their chicken was superb and Paula is always hands on, but i noticed the meal was missing a salad. I also noticed that the service was very slow - we were supposed to get lunch at quarter past 1 and we ended up... More

They are 10 minutes drive from city centre and their portuguese chicken is my favourite. Managed by very active, customer focused lady. When there you feel at home and parking lot is safe.

Went in on Saturday night around 1900 hrs for dinner with family. Ambience was good and relaxing. Meals were served by friendly staff and meals were very tasty. It was value for money.

The venue is a big hall and if not busy can be cold. We had 6 people for dinner so we made our own noise. The food is well prepared and good with reasonably large portions. There is nothing fancy about the place but it has a vibe and is solid. Always reliable for a quick meal.

This evening I decided to enjoy some food from Paula's which is pretty much my routine whenever I'm in Harare. I always have the Chorizo and the Grilled Pork Chops. This evening the Chorizo was a lot fattier than usual and I choked down most of it. Hoping the pork chops would rescue the experience, I was fairly disappointed when... More

Good day Jace, I was very disappointed with your feed back although it is of great value to us. Please accept my sincere apologies if you did not get the usual standard quality pork. Sadly lately we have been let down by our usual suppliers so we had settled for other pork suppliers (who are much more expensive) and its... More
