I had the most amazing mouth watering Portuguese Chicken out on a night with family and friends. The employees are very friendly and efficient with their work. The manager is also very friendly and makes sure the kitchen is running smoothly and efficiently. In addition, there is a Liquor store and bakery located next door to the Restuarant where you can purchase various freshly baked breads and a selection of Portuguese wines and other liquors. The restaurant also attain the highest rating relating to cleanliness and service and is a MUST for anyone looking to have an amazing Portuguese cuisine experience!

This is a very nice restaurant with good and quick service and tasty food. It offers a wide range of Portuguese Food. We stayed there with friends and enjoyed service and delicious food. If some say here that the food is somewhat expensive - not from a European point of view, for us the food was inexpensive.

I like the ambiance although the price of their food is a bit expensive. What i don't like is that the owner is not that friendly, for me it is very important because it encourages me to go back again and it makes me feel more welcome just a smile is enough for a customer like me..but if you want some fresh prawns you can have it there.

Was excited and bought fresh baguettes and Danish pastries 1st from their bakery, staff were very warm and welcoming. We had buzzards and snails to start, my snails were good but I found the sauce bit disappointing, my husband said his gizzard were delicious. Fresh bread rolls on table. My rock Shandy was lackluster and needed extra cola to tonic my husband enjoyed the house red. I had seafood salad, fresh salad greens and olive oil and salad dressing on table, prawns were delicious but the calamari and scampi were tough. My husband had Espatada mix came with chicken, chorizo and beef he rated it 5 out of 10 flavor wise. I'd rate my starter 5 and my main also 5 out of 10. Ok but wouldn't order it again. I had waffle, syrup and ice cream, disappointing as the ice cream was very grainy but I was craving sweet stuff so endured till the end. Did point this out to wait staff, no apology was forthcoming. The owner/manager lurked around the bar was not very warm or welcoming and seemed more interested in a laugh with staff member and the football. Sad because we were looking forward to some good Portuguese fare with the normal friendly Portuguese welcoming. I'll return once more to try something else on the menu to give them a second chance to redeem some other dishes perhaps.

LOCATION   Corner location in business/shop center next door to their bakery with oven-fresh patisserie, Danish rolls, portuguese rolls, palmier, Portuguese egg tarts and other pastries make this a favorable destination. Unfortunately the pastries are not made on Mondays, but fresh bread is still available. Have frequently bought their rolls and bakery items. If not for the distance, would be a daily customer.    SERVICE   Good, efficient staff with smiles and laughs.   FOOD   Delicious, tasty dishes are worth the wait and excitement.  Seafood was fresh and cuisine presentation attractive.  Enjoyed the char-grilled chicken and sweet pork ribs with lots of fries.  Popular restaurant with popular reviews. Always a highlight of a visit to Manzini.   SUMMARY   OUTSTANDING BAKERY AND AUTHENTIC PORTUGUESE DINER!

Gil Vicente is the nicest restaurant in Manzini. I have never been disappointed by a meal that I have had there. The Gil Vicente Special Filet that I ordered on my most recent visit was amazing. Also, the adjacent bakery is a great place for buying fresh bread and muffins.

We walked in and asked for closing time. Staff said the restaurant was closing at 22h and kitchen at 21:30h. Went for a drive around the city since it was still early (19:30). Returned 30 minutes after and the restaurant was closed. They refused to give us food and when I asked if I could talk to the manager for him to recommend me where to eat he did not bother coming out of the office. Staff saw us outside and totally ignored me.

I was taken here by colleagues. Arriving at the location it didn't look promising, but the food was fantastic; authentic and tasty Portuguese, with very generous portions. Friendly service too. Overall, a very nice evening.

Visited this exotic restaurant with two friends, the ambience menu list and the hosts are all warm and excellent. We had nice red wine and T-Steak Beef, which was out of the world. A must visit in Manzoni.
