We wanted to go to 1920 for a long time - we were not disappointed. As per the TripAdvisor guidance we asked Manny for a recommendation - prawns and chicken Portuguese style - delicious! It went down well with a superb Sophie Terblanche Sauvignon Blanc! We had Lindt mousse with coffee and 1920 Brandy for desert - another excellent choice! We'll definitely be back!
PS - Booking is essential - the place is small.

We had a casual dinner with friends at 1920 on Friday 22nd. It was our first and we left not understanding why we hadn't gone before. The food was excellent as was the service and atmosphere was fun. The owner was present which is often the mark of a good restaurant. Fortunately our friends booked a table otherwise we wouldn't have got in. We will definitely go back regularly.

This is a very authentic Portuguese restaurant. The owner is omnipresent and makes a genuine attempt to ensure that the menu is explained to you. There are some very traditional Portuguese dishes such as goat, Bacalhau and various pork dishes. The best selection of Portuguese wines in South Africa. Recommended.

We managed to get a booking here on a very stormy Johannesburg night. The restaurant is quiet, cozy, the owner Manny welcomes you personally, drinks order is taken quickly. Many is on hand to describe the specials and give advice on the extensive menu, definitely something for everyone. We went for the prawn special, excellent, and 2 of our party had the beef espetada which arrived with fabulous roundcut chips. We will definitely be back, this restaurant is the best kept secret in Jozi!
