It's not often you find a place which never lets you down. Beira Alta has been around for sometime and we have eaten there many times over the past 6 years. I have to say we have never been disappointed. They have never served me a dish I did not enjoy and they have never messed up with the order.... More

Fantastic evening at Beira Alta. The service was fantastic...we were greeted as soon as we walked in and were seated straight away. There was a long list of specials, mostly around combo's which I loved because I love trying different items on the menu. I had the chicken and prawn combo which was absolutely delicious. The rest of the table... More

We do not go there often, and tend to save for special occasions as the price of the meals has escalated to some degree. You though are always guaranteed a good meal and of good proportions.

Well worth a visit on your Ballito trip! Great food and well prepared. Good wine selection and knowledgable waiters. Trust them on their food recommendation! Could be considered a high priced restaurant but after enjoying the three course experience, it was worth every cent! Will recommend and return for sure!

The food is delicious, with large servings and authentic Portuguese Food. We have never been disappointed when we eat there. You are met at the front door and taken to your table and the waiters are excellent as well.

We had starter platter livers, chourico and calamari with fresh crispy rolls and an excellent sauce. The baby chicken was as if made in Mozambique, tasty with... More

Had a family lunch there, and it was one of the best meals overall in a long time. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was fresh and tasty and prepared the authentic Portuguese way. Also had the best oysters ever.
