Caramba is our favorite Portugues restaurant. The restaurant is small so we suggest one books ahead of time. They serve a variety of delicious Portugues dishes also stock a small collection of Portugues wines and Mault (Sagres)

This spot will not necessarily wow you with decor but the food will definitely. We have had numerous dinners here and done takeaways and it never disappoints. It’s family run and the owners are always here so the food is great and good value for money . Our favourites are the spicy flaming chorizo ; grilled and fried calamari and the garlic sweet potatoe bread for starters . Do not overeat here or you won’t mange the mains . You must do the whole peri peri chicken it’s outstanding, plus their whole fish and espetadas are a must . We have never managed dessert as we are way too full .

Wow Wow Wow Being a Mozambique Portuguese living in CT we thrive for our traditional food and we found it at Caramba. From the warm welcome from the Owners and The cutest Toy Pom and their amazing food, we knew our traditions are not very far. WELL DONE.

we enjoyed a meal here a few months back, but sadly for the second time last night we were fobbed off by the manager with a weak excuse that they could not accommodate us again ..when we tried to book a table at 8 pm for 9 pm, we were told that it was not possible due to load shedding at 10pm. Sadly we won't be back we cant support a restaurant that does not try to accommodate its loyal patrons

My husband ordered sardines, which were delicious and well presented. I had ordered 1/2 chicken with chips. Being Portuguese and cooking portuguese food on a daily basis, I was utterly disappointed. The chicken was not cooked through properly. I sent it back and it returned the same. I was not satisfied with this meal and was told that the chicken was red on the inside because of the marinade. The marinade was all poured over the chicken and the redness was was due to being partially raw. I was still charged for the meal and not even an apology was offered. I did not want to make a scene but it was definitely the first and last time!

Our very first time and certainly not our last. There were 3 of us, we decided to share the starters and if we needed more food then decide on a main. We had calamari tentacles, bolo do caco (sweet potato bread), milho frito( corn fritters). If you eat bread then it's a must to try. My husband decided on a main and he had the Portuguese steak. He claims the best he's had in a very long time . It's a family run restaurant and the wife is the chef. An over great meal and experience.

I think the people that work there and the atmosphere are very warm and friendly and it is wonderful to sit inside the restaurant. DO NOT order their house wine, it's terrible. Very sour. I ordered a Prego roll and chips and I think it was R145. Very overpriced but if it was really well made, fresh and a good portion I would happily pay that. It wasn't really... the prego rolls were soft but very small, the sauce was a bit too acidic and the chips tasted like McCain chips hauled from the freezer.

We went for dinner to Caramba for dinner last night, it is one of my favourite restaurants. Each dish was stunning, from the prawns to the calamari, chicken peri peri, and trinchada. Anna, who is the chef and owner is amazing, she prepares and cooks the meals and her control of the kitchen would make Gordon Ramsey envious. That being said she really is an amazing lady. Robert, is the host and make sure everything runs smoothly. Booking is a must. GG

Excellent authentic Portuguese food. It is a busy, vibrant restaurant with seating inside, provided you book, and outside seating. Food recommendations - Starters: white bait or deep fried tentacles. Both were delicious. Main: calamari tubes and rice; steak with red wine and chorizo or chicken with spicy sauce Overall, a very enjoyable experience and recommended for a relaxing dinner.

This Portuguese family run restaurant is exceptional. From the warm welcome from Roberto to the first course you immediately know you are going to enjoy this meal. It was superb. Great whitebait cooked to perfection. Cod cakes as a starter were divine. The Mozambique chicken was just so tasty and huge too! Simply amazing. The silverfish was cooked with lots of flavour and was fabulous. House red wine excellent and the Portuguese lager light and very enjoyable. Don’t hesitate to come here BUT book because it is always busy. A special mention to the new Brazilian waitress. She does the restaurant proud.

Excellent portugues food ! Authentic and flavorful! So testy and fresh, comes super hot out of the kitchen. I definitely believe it's the best portugues food in Cape Town. Just make sure to call for a table , get busy late afternoon and dinner. Great people, very friendly and owner is greeting everyone. Highly recommend this lovely family restaurant for a cozy , soulful food experience! Thank you

What an outstanding restaurant! Had dinner there last night. We were a table of 6 with our 3 fur kids (Jack Russel’s). The food was well prepared and the service was excellent! I had the espetade, rare with fries. The meat was cooked to perfection and the fries awesome. We all had a fantastic evening. It is best to book beforehand as they get full quickly.

What a find!!! Small authentic Portuguese restaurant. Just happened to be walking passed and noticed prawns on the menu. Having been very disappointed at another CT restaurant, we decided to try it and thrilled that we did!!! The service was very friendly and professional and the prawns were...WOW to die for!!! We will definitely be back before we leave CT. Thank you Caramba!
