Stopped over for a quick lunch and as always was not disappointed. The food is always fresh and well prepared and served efficiently. One of our favorite dining spots. Seafood always impresses and the chicken peri peri is scrumptious. Best chicken livers anywhere. Keep up the excellent service.

Been coming to Beira Alta for years for their prawns. However this has been the first time I have been disappointed with their prawns. The sauce was not up to scratch. The size of the prawns were inconsistent. Three servings of prawns and different size prawns. Beira Alta is losing what made them famous

Food is good but service, cleanliness and value for money leave you wanting more... We visit often, each time hoping for the great experience we had the first time there a few years ago, still no luck

Arrived to a crowded restaurant, the manager was very friendly and asked us to wait in the bar and he got us a table very quick. The manager saw my daughter was very tired and made "a bed" with a couple of chairs for her to sleep on while we finished our meal. Very good staff and great food. Very... More

If you love chicken livers and can't stand receiving boiled in salsa livers then you must try these. They are really pan Fried and cooked to perfection with the tastiest sauce... A definite must...

Have not been here in a while but still good, although the portions seem have decreased in size. Overall still a worthwhile place for a good dinner with the family. Booking is needed hence the quality is good enough to require advanced booking. The chef palo's salad is still a winner despite being a SQ order!
