We haven't been to Parreirinha for at least 13 years, so we decided we need to visit the restaurant that left a lasting impression on us
First, you have to understand, this awesome restaurant is in real dodgy area of the South of Jhb. Yet, your car are always looked after and you never feel unsafe.
This place is a little gem. It truly is the best Portuguese restaurant. The atmosphere, decor is all natural and relax. There are no cliches and you don't feel that somebody had to pay a lot of money to create the authentic look and feel.
Our servers were attentive and really quick.
But the highlight, as it should be was the delicious food. It is a simple menu and I love the fact that there are not hundreds of dishes.
We started off with freshly baked Portuguese rolls, we didn't eat starters as we wanted to get to the prawns.
My husband had a plate of Queen prawns, I had the chicken and prawns. Everything was tasty, and the prawns are definitely the best I have eaten.
For desert we had dom pedros - but the Parreirinha special.
It was a pleasant evening, with good food and we enjoyed every second of it. We will be back soon with a host of our friends.
Just note: they don't have a kiddy menu but some of the dishes can be prepared for your child. Bookings are essential.
