You can't have a more enjoyable Portuguese meal, this side of Johannesburg, but you need time to really appreciate it. Fill your glasses with a typical Portuguese wine and slowly enjoy your starters. If they are giblets, chicken liver or calamari or all of them...More

Excellent food and atmosphere, I just love the Portugal food. So spicy and you can get the chicken as hot as you want. I just love my hot stuff.

We have been going to Geno's for a few years now. Today 2 of us had the Prawn/Kingklip/Mussel combo, the others had Kingklip and Chicken Livers (main). This is a family run restaurant and the food is really good.

This restaurant doesn't immediately attract one's attention from the outside, and it's not located in a great area, but if anyone recommends that you go, or if you're looking for great Portuguese food, do so. The food is really great, especially the trinchado. The peri...More

I have been looking for years for the best Mozambican prawns in Johannesburg. I am rather reticent to give this out as it might become too busy and well known! Their King prawns grilled with Peri-Peri on the side are succulent and as spicy as...More
