Fernando at 1920 does the most incredible paella with seafood. His grilled calamari in garlic butter is also heavenly. This cosy bistro hailing from Madeira and its cuisine is a Joburg gem.

We had the Flamed chorizo as a starter. This is no ordinary spicy sausage. They must have got these from their motherland.

Friendly helpful service, almost as if you were sitting in Fernando’s kitchen at home.

If you don’t book or get there as early as 6 pm you will battle to get a table.

Peri peri proper and worth every cent.

Thank Gary J

Authentic Portuguese menu, food like sardines, clams, prawns,bacalhau, feijoada, Caldo verde etc. Delicious!!!!!!
There is also a board with additional options and a great wine list.

An overall good experience, great waiters and service and food to remember. Book well in advance as very popular.
