Tonino's is a bit of an institution in the area. It's not fancy. It's not upmarket. It's a Bar and Grill with a Portuguese angle. Their food is decent and hearty, the staff are welcoming and friendly. There is an atmosphere of friendliness and cheer. You can just hang out there, eat some decent food, play pool, watch live music, do karaoke, enter a pub quiz etc. It's a place you can call your "local". The barman learns your name and what you like, and it'll be ready for you when you walk in the door. They have a security guard outside who can watch your car, and he appreciates a tip when you leave.

Portuguese pub meals in a down to earth setting Great chicken, meat and fish dishes and interesting assortment of sides. Vegetarians have limited choices but will survive. Deserts could be more interesting probably not the best location is you have small children - definitely a pub

When there's a live band it's very good.Spontaneous dancing encouraged, but can only have a dinner conversation with great difficulty due to uncontrolled volume. Crowd can get a little rough close to midnight. Safe parking with car watchers.

Hit Toninos for their awesome prawn special. R330 for a kg of prawns! This is the second time I have had them and they were great! 👌 The soccer World Cup games created a great atmosphere. I smashed a few rum and cokes I to my face. Good Times. Great venue to get together with the boys.

Been coming to Toninos for 17 years. Just great all round. Owner managed. That says it all. Try and get to see Cindy Alter Big Band usually the middle Saturday of the month. Fabulous entertainment by one of South Africa's greatest female vocalists. Booking is essential. It gets very busy. But what a party.

The is a regular , the food is great and the owner looks after you well . They make great pizzas , pregos , caldo verd . The often have live music and sometimes karioki - which can be an insult to your ears - worth a stop in !

Always a good friendly atmosphere, with good food and drink. Comfortable environment in a pub tucked away just off a busy road in Orange Grove. For pub grub, the food has really impressed us - nothing fancy just good tasting comfort food. Staff are always helpful and friendly - and so are the regulars. Plenty of room with a good few tele’s for the major sports events. Be visiting again without a doubt - whenever I make it back over to SA

A place where everyone knows your name. Great good friendly service. Nice ambiance. Portuguese food par excellence. Good beer on the tap. Some nights have live music. It can get loud

Pizza prego and even their lamb roast I get takeaways a lot from here. Not ideal for kids but great place to have a drink eat some tasty food or get fast takeaways.
