A few months ago I gave the place a 5 star rating of their prawns (which has always been great for years), however, I have been there on 2 subsequent visits and on both visits I was left disappointed. On my latest visit, I was served under cooked and lesser than usual size prawns. The presentation was also poor, which... More

Julio's Glenwood has become our favourite spot for genuine Portuguese Chicken Peri-Peri al la LM. What can I say, every time it has been truly awesome! I can understand why they won't let you share a whole chicken between two but the two halves as we normally have are large enough for us each to take a 'doggy bag' home... More

Seven of us had lunch on Sunday at Julio's. The place is clean, nice benches on the veranda and very airy. I had the Paella which was very tasty and a bargain at R79! The waitresses were efficient and polite. We didn't have to wait too long for our food to arrive although the restaurant was full. No one had... More

Having written a positive review before I have had to change my opinion. My last few visits have shown a deterioration in many areas from the quality of the prawns which are now much smaller, the ridiculous Greek salad that cost R48 but was just filled with lettuce two slices of tomatoes cut into quarters a few olives and small...

We ordered a escargot starter, Prawn and Chicken main meal... 1. The staff doesn't wear uniform so you don't actually know who to speak to when you arrive, you cannot tell who is the waiter or manager. 2. WRT our order, we called at 7 they said it would be ready in 20 minutes, we arrived at 7:30 the food... More

Best value for money. I am still hearing my colleagues rave on about the... More

When we lived on the Berea Julio's Continental was one of our regular haunts because of the good quality, no frills, friendliness of it all. Going there last night was like coming home. Like just as good as ever!

I decided to surprise mom with a visit from Australia on her 60th Birthday. Julios being her favourite restaurant, I thought it was the perfect place to play the surprise out. And it truly was... the staff were amazing with the support I received during all moments of the organisational process. Fast forward to the day - 20 people; all... More

A large crowd of us went out for supper. I wish i could remember the waiters name, he was fantastic! We were kept well topped out throughout the night. We enjoyed our food and would recommend it for anyone to have a good relaxing night out.
