Small, unassuming place in heart of Melville. The food is good - great burgers that taste as good as they look. Decent selection of beers. Don't be put off by slightly shabby looks. Nice street vibe...
Take a tablet or laptop, even bring your dog: you'll be here all day saying hello to friends, drinking ice cold draughts, eating their amazing Portuguese food and enjoying free Wi-Fi... pretty much...
Vibey fun and friendly restaurant that is a firm favourite whenever we're in Joburg. Prawns are excellent - large, tasty and juicy, steak is fantastic and service is very good!
