We are household names at this awesome place. Always good food, especially a nice vibe on Sundays IF Wesley performs, which lately is not the case. Today we felt pressed for time and food ordered arrived in no time, which in essence is great, but...not good at all for a long, chilled Sunday lunch.... bit worried here. Things are not the same anymore, sad to say thisMore

My new favourite restaurant! I now understand why one must always make a reservation when coming here... Their food is to die for and the service is so efficient and friendly. We will see you again soon!

The restaurant is small, so make a booking just to be safe. It feels nice and cozy inside. The food was really great and the chilli sauce they put on the table is to die for. The service could be better as it's a little...on the slow side. We were disappointed that the owner (whom we saw at several other tables) never came to check in on us.More

Petiscos what an excellent choice to make any day of the week. This is truly a little gem giving you a taste of Mozambique in Cape Town. Chose any dish, you will not be disappointed. The Baby Kingklip and the Xai Xai chicken mains are...amazing. Start off with the chicken livers as they will impress as will the Greek salad, which tastes like every ingredient has been freshly picked by hand. The staff are great and the best bit will be the bill, value for money with every morsel and wines to match.More
