If you're planning to eat here on a weekend, it's advisable to book in advance as the place can fill up very quickly. I honestly cannot find fault with the extensive menu, and have never disappointed. Service and food of the highest standard -- and that at affordable prices.

Went for a quiet midweek lunch and was expecting the restaurant to be empty but to our surprise it was pretty full and hosting a company lunch. The service was still excellent and our waiter was attentive and friendly. The prawns were superb, cooked exactly right in the true Portuguese way. Chips were fresh and hand cut and beers were...

Had a business meeting there recently and all 5 of us agreed that the restaurant still maintains it's charm and serves good food. I had the prawn curry, still one of the best I have tasted while the other diners chose a variety of dishes. All enjoyed the meal and some newbies will be going back. A tip- park behind... More

The Troyeville Hotel is an institution in Johannesburg, the serve excellent prawns and french fries, and the starters of calamari and chicken livers served with chorizo sausage cuts is also perfect. Their peri-peri never disappoints. We were served by Maezinha, great attitude and prompt service.

Flamingo Resturant at the back of Troyville Hotel. Parking at the back of the hotel off Princess Street. A pedestrian stair leads up to the Resturant. Security guard and car guard. Seafood is fresh and by far the best choice on the menu.

This is one of our favorite restaurants and we would come more often if it was closer to home. This map is entirely incorrect. The hotel is near Ellis Park. The peri peri chicken is great. And they make the best chips in town. We always have prawns and a selection of starters like chourico and trinchado. Ask Lawrence for... More

Restaurants of this caliber in JHB are few and far between. Not often that you can find homemade chips cooked to perfection. As for the Rock Cod as my mains wow, awesome...can't wait to go back, just wish it was around the corner... You can not go wrong here!!!

The hotel has been a feature of the Johannesburg for well over 60 years, had a wonderful pub and restaurant specializing in Portuguese food. Unfortunately the hotel has been in decline for some time now, it is based in a "seedier"side of Johannesburg and I honestly would not recommend a stay there. The only reason I have stated it is...
