Walking down the Main Road in Kalk Bay and browsing in the boutiques - walk a little bit further towards the Kalk Bay Harbour and don't miss this fabulous Portuguese restaurant! A relaxed atmosphere and no doubt about that if you visit once you have...to visit over and over again as so nice peri peri prawns! They offer a great selection and good varieties on the menu: Fresh seafood, chicken, salad or spareribs! Really delicious food and the prawns are the best! Also seafood platters are available! Such a friendly service!More

We have lived in Muizenberg for years and never tried this place. It is absolutely thr best food I have tasted in a long time. We had snails to start and I had prawns which were big and sweet Mom had the grilled fish which...was outstanding. Take your own booze they don't serve buy there is a bottle store right there. I even got their spicy sauce to take back to Saudi Arabia.More

We loved the atmosphere but the food was terrible. The starter of calamari heads and chourizo lacked flavour - the chourizo in particular was utterly bland . This dish was served with a sauce taht tasted like chicken stock thickened with flour. The main course...was kingklip and prawns . The kingklip was covered in a butter lemon sauce that had a greenish tint and looked weird. My daughter could not even eat the prawns . The second main course dish of kingklip and grilled calamari was again served with some bland sauce. All in all I find it hard to understand how perfectly fine seafood can be dished up so badly. We will most definitely not be back.More

What a little gem. The food and service is fantastic. We had a platter with so many different items, squid heads, mussels, giblets, chicken liver, sausages and more. The softest portuguese rolls. Great value for money and you can even see the sea. When ever...you are in Kalk Bay - it is a definite stop.More

We went to Beira Mar for a birthday lunch. For once, we were the noisy ones, but I think both the owner and the customer were fine about it. Good and chilled atmosphere... Tried 2 starters and a main. The snails are a must do....Excellent. The rest was good.More

We enjoyed the atmosphere and the peri-peri chicken was excellent. No corkage fee, so we just nipped over to Tops next door and brought a couple of bottles of excellent South African wine.

Was taken to this Portuagese restaurant with good friends. Service was attentive, explanations of the food by the waiter. No alcohol served in this restaurant, but just over the road was an off licence to get any type of drink required. Menu was great and...the food well presented and very tasty. Had the verticle skewered beef fed from the top with a pouch of butter, superb. Just on the front in Kalk Bay, give it a try if you are passing.More

We are visiting from the UK and went with friends and family who live here in Fish hoek - the fish was superb, all the staff were so friendly and we loved we could take our own wine. Would definitely recommend, great place to go...and chill. The place was fully booked so if you’re going at a weekend, would call ahead and reserve.More
