Every time I come here it just gets better and better. Love this place. Good food, friendly service, good service. This is always the first place I stop, even if it is just for a drink.

This restaurant shares the kitchen with the adjacent restaurant xai xai, and overall we had 3 dinners in these 2 places. We were received always with a friendly service and the food was very good (also considering that South Africa is wonderful but not the best place in the world for the food). Among the others, I do recommend the... More

I have always in the past rated you as one of the best restaurants in Melville, but after our last visit i must say, that you need to up your game. Rude staff "welcoming" you at the door. We sat down and it took forever to get our drinks ordered. Then the waitress some how misunderstood our order and brought... More

We have been here on and off for the last 2 years. Haven't tried any of the other food, but trust me, if you want prawns, you cannot get more prawns for this value in JHB. Or anywhere in the world I've experienced. Hey are always great. Huge in abundance. Smash it down with a 2M Mozambican beer.

Went there with my family as it was one of the only places open on New Year's Day. There really is no non-smoking section; the fans in the non-smoking section were broken as well. The food was really bad: undercooked pizzas, no dressing on the salads, and half of the ingredients missing from pasta dishes! Avoid it if you can.

Popped in here on the recommendation of a Rough Guide book and was impressed by both the food and the service. I ordered the trinchado and must say it was absolutely delicious. The staff are friendly and the menu has a decent selection. Would recommend it. P.S. They also have some great music. The play list that was on when... More

I'll start this by saying I have enjoyed restaurants all over the world including Portugal and I'm no food snob but this place was beyond appalling. Staff were disinterested in us, and didnt know what some of the menu items were. To really top it off there were a group of loud mouth obnoxious ferals who I wanted to strangle... More

Melville has had a revival of sorts; the buzz that defined it in the late eighties and early nineties seems to have made a comeback. Having been a regular diner at Nunos years ago, we decided to try them for the first time in a decade. A lot has changed in the interval. The first thing I noticed is that... More

Went for breakfast and back for dinner. Lots of good food for good prices. Array of Portuguese style sauces come out. Prawn coconut curry gorgeous. Good service, great location, lots of choice, good atmosphere.

Nuno's is not fine dining - but that's fine, because it doesn't pretend to be. I have eaten there countless times, and they are utterly dependable. You get good food, friendly service, more than reasonable prices, and you get all of that every time. If you know the menu, there are some real gems. The trinchado is magnificent. And the... More
