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

Fantastic food, great service, owner run and lots of fun. A great venue to hook up with friends and an even better place to take the "familia". Whatever you order, you will not be disappointed. Come and have a taste of Portugal in Tableview.

One of the tastiest meals we have ever eaten in Cape Town (or anywhere). Will definitely be going back to try different items on the menu until we have gone through every item. Warning...not wheel chair accessible.

Absolutely every dish on this menu is outstanding! We've loved dining at Petiscos for many years :- for date night, celebratory birthday parties and just to satisfy the craving for the house speciality prawn cakes on the spur of the moment! Last night the restaurant...was almost fully booked with reservations so we were lucky to get a table for two - from starters to ribs to classic Portuguese peri peri chicken livers and everything inbetween - superb! Great friendly service means an awesome experience every time. Thank you for keeping standards and the menu consistently 5* over so many years! Highly recommended.More
