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.
88 Kloof St, Tamboerskloof; 021 423 7617
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).
