Decided to take friends that were down from JHB for the two oceans marathon there on Thursday night and boy once again it didnt fail to be one of the best evenings out in a long time! The vibe, the music, the no pretentiousness of the staff and fellow diners and all in all it was just an awesome evening. Have to be honest I hardly finish my food when I go there as I so get into the vibe that i forget to eat but the xai xai chicken is still my favourite! Sorry guys no photos as was enjoying the music way too much to take any :)

Possibly the best Portuguese restaurant in Cape Town. It's a nice tucked away joint in parklands, family owned and run by the owner and has always been on the ball with service and food. Being a vegetarian doesn't leave with much options in this cuisine but they have always been happy to make something special up and differently for me! They have a particular chilli sauce with their bread, which is divine.

Tracy Poulter:

This place is not situated in the best location BUT it's sooo worth the visit.

The atmosphere is warm and cozy, the service is brilliant, the waiters and management are always friendly and helpful. 

My absolute favourite here is the Beef Trinchado, they don't make it spicy enough for me so I add their home made chilli sauce which just perfects it for me. 

Their prices are eh... reasonable 
Service is fantastic
Food, flavour and portions are amazing

A definite must try if you are in the area and enjoy a good Portuguese cuisine, they know how to do it!


Absolutely stunning food & service!! The Prawn Cakes, Xai-Xai Chicken, Trinchado, Creamy Garlic Mussels and Sole is delicious. 

Every restaurant should be like this establishment 😊 

Andre Breytenbach:

The food is absolutely brilliant, the location so so, the owner Andy always on duty and a delight of a person, so is his son Rudi - they do a wonderful hosting job!

You have to try the Xia Xia Chicken - incredible! Please note this is not a Portuguese restaurant - dont compare to other Portuguese restaurants.   

Heads up book over weekends the place is packed! 

I had my year-end function there once and everyone's food came out simultaneously and cooked to perfection, and we were about 60 people, no easy task!

By far the best restaurant in the area!!

Johann Malherbe:

I have been doing many reviews and ratings, and it is an absolute pleasure rating Petiscos.
This restaurant is the balance between everything from friendly staff, good service but most of all good food and when i say good i mean juicy and flavourful that will meet and exceed your desired tastebuds,this place is a full rating and a definte thums up.
