A sun­shiny set­ting com­bines with a warm am­bi­ence at this fun spot with its wooden decks and tra­di­tional café feel. We loved the Case­cas de Lu­las (squid ten­ta­cles mar­i­nated in a peri-peri sauce; R57), fol­lowed by the grilled line fish with lemon and gar­lic-but­ter sauce (R140). Don’t en­joy seafood? The ten­der and spicy periperi half chicken (R80) is a pop­u­lar choice.

If you’re look­ing for de­li­cious food in a place with a fam­ily feel, Cal­isto’s is a must-visit. Nau­ti­cal para­pher­na­lia rules, with fish­ing nets, wine bot­tles and ship wheels dec­o­rat­ing the ceil­ing, and you can fill up on gen­er­ous por­tions. Try the seafood plat­ter for one (cala­mari, prawns, hake and rice or chips; R200) or the Trin­chado (rump cut­lets pan-fried in their sig­na­ture Por­tuguese sauce; R130).

“Joburg’s best-kept se­cret”, Eira Moura feels like a happy slice of Europe right in SA. Ex­pect vi­brant com­pany, bril­liant ser­vice and tasty food. For a quick bite, try the Espetada (skew­ered rump steak; R107) with fried po­lenta. For some­thing more fill­ing, or­der the Ba­cal­hau Fresco (fresh cod fried with onion, gar­lic, green pep­pers and pota­toes; R178), with a slice of home-made cake (R40) for dessert.

This pop­u­lar restau­rant is known for its au­then­tic Mozam­bi­can Por­tuguese cui­sine, relaxed vibe, yel­low exterior and gen­er­ous por­tions that won’t break the bank. En­joy eat­ing in­side or out, with top starters like ris­soles (veg- or prawn-filled pas­tries; R24), and great seafood, like Mozam­bi­can Queen prawns (R145), for mains. End with cho­co­late mousse (R28).

Scor­pio Re­mem­ber to have fun Height­ened sex­ual en­ergy will en­cour­age you to play more in bed with your mate, so have fun! Sin­gle?

apri­corn Take con­trol of your life You need to put bound­aries in place at work, as power strug­gles are im­mi­nent and your col­leagues will try and con­trol you.

Ex­tra ef­fort at work will be re­warded and your fi­nances will flour­ish as a re­sult. This is an op­por­tune mo­ment for busi­ness part­ner­ships, so go for it! Love wise, your part­ner re­ally needs to let you shine, and you may need to take time out for your­self, but be sure to pay at­ten­tion to them when needed. Sin­gle? You’re af­ter a ro­man­tic love story, so put your­self in as many so­cial sit­u­a­tions as pos­si­ble to at­tract some­one you de­sire.
