WOW we were really impressed as it was our first time at the restaurant. We went in January 2017 when the normal December holiday makers all returned back to their homes.Lovely atmosphere! Vibrant and busy and waiters efficient. Food was AMAZING! Will for sure see me when in Ballito!

As locals this is a restaurant we visit frequently. Never fails to deliver a wide range of great Portuguese specialties. Consistently satisfying and highly recommended.

Not impressed with the ribs. Tried the chicken espatada. This was very dry. Service was slow and to relaxed. Took so long we were about to leave... 70 minutes. Management did offered the meal on the house, but we really just wanted our guest to have a good meal. Overall not a good experience.

The Restaurant was recommended by friends and certainly did not disappoint. The waiter was very friendly and made my day by announcing I was an ARSENAL fan so went straight up in my mind being spot on! The food selection was great and when it arrived was very colourful and excellent taste. the Shrimps were excellent as well as the... More

Best spot to meet friends after work... or even to start the weekend on a Friday night.. just awesome. As we love going to MZ.. this is just a wee little reminder about going to Ponta da ouro regularly.... the free nuts and M2 beer is just the thing to kick start any weekend. Love it there.

Been coming here for years, and always love it. For me, it's the chicken - hot - with coconut rice, as well as the calamari, which is as good as you'll get anywhere in the world. But everyone has there own favourite, and it's where we meet to eat, laugh, and be happy. Brett and staff are tops.

Good day, thank you for taking the time to review! We are so happy you enjoyed our food. In terms of the cost of prawns, in comparison to similar restaurants we are in fact one of the cheapest when it comes to prawn prices. While we understand that seafood will always seem costly, it is unfortunate that the cost of... More
