Can't go wrong. Well trained staff and excellent service. If you're craving piripiri chicken you get what it says on the box plus lots of flavour and always cold drinks. Great place to satisfy your appetite and prices are reasonable.More

Authentic Portuguese food, with tasty peri peri chicken my favourite dish but can also highly recommend their fish and beef dishes. Relaxed atmosphere, good vibe and friendly waiters and management headed up by Paula and Cheryl. The outside verandah deck is a great addition.

Not necessarily, it will guarantee a place but there is a lot of room both inside and out so it's up to you. Can always call them direct.

Haven't a clue! As wine bottles are not corked anymore why then is a corkage fee charged at all?
