It's an extremely popular, cozy, intimate place, so booking ahead is essential I would say. The menu provides a good choice, but my main course choice proved to be unavailable, 15 minutes after I had ordered it!! The other serving error took place when a...More

We've had several family meals at 1920 over the past few years. Without fail, Manny and Paula continue to deliver an authentic and delicious Portuguese culinary experience. The menu is limited and hence you're guaranteed to enjoy a freshly prepared meal. Definitely worth a try...More

Situated in the Ferndale Village Centre. Friendly and attentive staff. Absolutely amazing food. Freshly prepared with smells of Portugal streaming from the kitchen as you sit with your mouth watering in anticipation of your feast. Highly recommended but you need to book well in advance.
