Have a look at their cocktails menu for awesome specials before or after dinner, the menu is mainly Portuguese cuisine that our family loves

Very well priced restaurant. Food is tasty and well presented. The atmosphere is good and not too noisy. The ladies lived the grilled butternut salad with biltong and the men lived the steak and biltong combo. Definately a must-visit for the carnivores among us.

My love had the Chourico and I the Very Cheesy starters. The Chourico was flaming, so be warned. The Very Cheesy was on the small side, but Very fruity with preserved figs and berries.

What a great experience. Excellent food, huge portions and very reasonable prices. You can't lose! The wine list has good choices with reasonable prices, too. A really nice touch was that the chef came to the table to see if we enjoyed our meal. I've rarely seen that happen at other places.

Stumbled on this after grill house next door was closed and an eager cook convinced me to come in and have a steak. And A steak I had! Excellent fillet with chips.
