They are committed to offering an excellent standard of service, quality of food and creating the best Portuguese atmosphere to enjoy with family. When one needs service, just ensure that the red end is facing upwards and one of the waiters will attend to your needs immediately. My family took my grandmother out for her 76th birthday the 18 September 2020. She really enjoyed herself and the food was out of the world. I would like to thank Rio Sol and their staff for making her day special and to make her feel at home. This place is highly recommended to all, not only in Gauteng but to all the visitors to OUR country. (SOUTH AFRICA) Please make yourself at home.

On a recent visit to Vereeniging we were fortunate enough to have a dinner at Rio Sol. The food was fantastic, the service we received from Tumi was outstanding and their Gin Cocktails are probably the best I have tasted. Will definitely be back during our next visit.

I had a very distasteful experience at Rio Sol, which in my opinion used to be the best restaurant in Vereeniging. Upon our arrival we had to move from our table due to the unpleasant smell in the seating area close to the restrooms. The bread roles were stale and the ice which was served with our bottle of wine caused the wine to have an undrinkable aftertaste. Upon complaining and confirming that it was indeed due to the ice by also having the wine (which I had previously on a few occasions) served in a glass without any ice, our complaints were purely dismissed in an unfriendly, uncompromising manner by the manager, Zoe who was of the opinion that no other guests were complaining about the same problem. Despite this treatment and due to the chicken and avocado salad having been prepared already, we decided to stay only to be disappointed once again by the poor quality of the salad, i.e. the avo not being fresh and the "cajun" chicken being bland and having an unpleasant taste. Seeing that we did not want to complain any further after being treated in the way we were, we decided to rather put the salad in a take away container and leave. Upon receipt of the bill we noticed that the 2 glasses of wine were in fact voided but this only after I had to insist on it. I truly feel that the situation could have been handled and rectified in a more accommodating manner.

What a lovely lunch. The seafood pizza was delicious, the service was excellent, and our table next to the pond was serene. We will most definitely visit again, well done to Zoey and her team!

A warm welcome on arrival, good service all backed up with good food. I was a single diner and felt quite at home at the restaurant. All my requests, deviation from the menu, were gratiously accepted and well executed. Will definitely go back when I am next in Vereeniging.

We were traveling to Johannesburg and stopped with friends in this town. They said we would not be disappointed in this restaurant - so we met them there - and they were quite correct. Good service and excellent cuisine. Very true to Portuguese tradition. I had the prawn cheese starter (served in the same way as snails) really very tasty and the guys had the kale and potato soup and raved about it. (would have been five stars but they said they had to charge the guys for two extra rolls to have with their soup as they had eaten the bread whilst waiting with their drinks - I felt this was a bit mean!) However the main was delicious - the casserole steak with an egg on top. The sauce was divine - the potatoes too much - the rice would have been sufficient - but I had help eating them from the guys :-) I would definitely order this again. Never made it to desert as plenty of food on the plate. Very good restaurant and a very wide menu.

We had lunch with very good friends of ours on a Wednesday afternoon. As it was nice weather we sat outside under one of the umbrellas. We loved the atmosphere around the Koi pool, chickens running around, even the cats being fed by the carguards. The service was very good so as the food as well. We will definitely come and have a meal here again.

We spend a day in the vaal triangle once a month ,to do our monthly shopping.We have a miniature Dachshund with us ,and it is almost impossible to find a pet friendly restaurant .That includes fast food chain eateries. Here we were welcomed with our pet ,the setting under the trees sooo relaxing .The seafood was very good, reasonably priced and the staff friendly and "on the ball"Appreciated the linen napkins and finger bowls.Remember next time we go shopping
