eira Alta, a region where royalty once ruled and tradition emerged, the heart and Soul of Portugal.

We are a family owned and run restaurant who are firm believers in a “hands on” approach when it comes to business. We welcome you to Beira Alta and hope that you have a memorable experience. We prepare our food using only the freshest ingredients, herbs and spices. Our family tradition is to cook from the heart with recipes passed down from generation to generation, which have over time evolved into Portuguese Cuisine with a distinct African Influence. We have earned a reputation for our flame grilled chickens and kilos of pan-

fried prawns piled high, smothered with a secret blend of spices, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic. The South African desire for red meat remains unabated so Beira Alta serves unashamedly large portions, basted in Chef’s unique sauces, guaranteed to keep any meat eater happy. Seafood however, remains the top seller. Traditional recipes to tickle your taste buds served spicy or plain. A constant commitment to quality and a fierce refusal to compromise will keep Beira Alta flourishing for many years. On behalf of Paul, Janet and Ricardo we thank you for your patronage! “Bom Apetite”
