I have now eaten at Paula's twice and love this restaurant. The menu offers good variety of Portugues dishes. The peri peri chicken is excellent. Service is very good and the managers are very attentive.

Paula's is a local favourite serving good Portuguese food. Beers are cold, a decent selection of wines for Harare and helpful and friendly service. You will struggle to find better chicken and chips anywhere.More
