    This restaurant has the most delicious Portuguese food that I have had in a long time. Just outside the restaurant there is live entertainment which is terrific. I find the meat dishes amazing and in the evenings when the owners are there, they are so keen for you to try different meals. I find the sweets very rich after the meals but cannot fault anything. You have to go there for a meal!!

    Been here once and the experience was good. Service was average and we constantly requested help from the waiter. The place has a good portuguese ambience and serves good quality food. The prices are average.

    I always enjoy dinners here.

    I must admit, I only order one of two things, i.e. the peri-peri chicken and the spicy prawns.

    It's much more romantic to sit upstairs on the balcony but it's usually full, so book in advance. I also enjoy sitting downstairs in the booths.

    The staff are professional and very welcoming.
    I've never had any regrets about eating here and therefore always go back.

    This is a typical potuguese restaurant, from the ambience to the cuisine. It's a pity, there were no prtuguese waitresses. Overall you cannot go wrong and it seems as if you are allowed to carry your own wine into the restaurant, as I observed.

    For a good portuguese cuisine, one should definately try Beira Alta. I have been to both places ie Monte Casino and Ballito, however I found the food in Ballito wasnt soo tasty as the one here in Monte Casino. Their prawns were small in size and here I thought that since they are near the sea I will have lekker big prawns. Like they say "Local (Gauteng) is lekker.

    As you take seat, they serve bread rolls accompanied with their famous peri-peri sauce (which i might add is free). Their calamari starters is also very tasteful.

    My personal favourite is the succulent mouthwatering peri peri chicken and their prawns which are infused with their own unique flavours. Also one has a choice to opt for chips or stir fry veggies. Stir fry veggies really taste good and is very colourful. What I also like is that the chips are fresh home made chips and not those processed chips which one can buy from the local supermarkets.

    One also does not have to dress only formal, I have been there quite a few times with jeans and T-Shirt.

    Their prices are little high but you get your monies worth.

    What I like about Beira Alta, is that you can also purchase their famous peri-peri sauce. I guess there is no harm in trying to make your home cook meal taste just as good as theirs.

    Its a good place to book for special occassions and if you want to book for New Years Eve make sure you do so early.

    I found this place really good. Service was great and food was unbelievably great, especially their peri peri chicken prawn combo. It's quite spicy and the taste is unique to this place. Price can be a little above average, but quality was great.

    Decor is an "interesting" mix of faux-Portuguese and Ikea-modern, not bad in any way, just a little odd.

    Service was friendly and efficient.

    While there was nothing actually wrong with any of the food, it was dull and unexciting in both presentation and taste - cooked well but lacking anything to make it memorable.

    I heard good things about this place and decided to give it a try. I was not impressed. I found it average in comparison to other restaurants in it's class. The sole looked bland when it arrived, but it wasn't too bad
