This restaurant based in Rosebank mall in a business district of Johannesburg has an excellent menu including many portuguese specialities. The fish we chose was excellent and big portions. Everything was very quickly served and very good value for money, one might even say cheap by UK standards!

Enjoyed grilled sole and a green salad--beautiful. A glass of dry white wine made the perfect lunch. Dined outside in a covered area. Wonderful surroundings.

While waiting for our wives (who were on a shopping trip) we had an extremely nice lunch (oysters) accompanied by a few bottles of perfect sauvignon blanc. Sitting under an umbrella in a very comfortable sofa, enjoying a fine breeze on a sunny day, was very relaxing. The staff was friendly and helpful.
