The meal service is excellent and the place is just the right choice for an evening dinner outing. Night outing in a city may not be everyone's cup of tea but this joint seemed very classic though laid back. The variety of western dishes on offer will not disappoint you!!

Specials of the day are good value for money by Zimbabwean standards and their portions are substantial. Staff were extremely tentative and helpful. It won't blow you away, but you certainly won't be disappointed.

Especially when so hot and 2M's are cold what more can you ask for?! Typical tasty Portuguese offerings in cool courtyard environment with good attentive service and free WiFi to catch-up on work and admin etc!

I feel that over the years Paulas has maintained its standards. Took my husband for his birthday dinner there..staff is welcoming and attentive and food did not take long. Prices are very reasonable as well. The only thing that may need to be addressed is the lighting in the restaurant

It looks a bit like entering a tackie joint, with subway toilet style tiling décor and bright fairy lights - but that's all in keeping with the authentic Portuguese style and humour. We went in a huge family crowd. A fairwell from family and friends after our wonderful visit back to Harare after being away for many years. And a... More

All at Paula's appreciated your awesome review and I personally found your description of our decor quiet humorous. The idea behind the decor was to move away from the standard traditional portuguese theme and add a little fun to the atmosphere even though tiles on the outside of houses are very popular in most parts of Portugal. So happy you... More
