Beira Alta is a beautiful South African hidden gem that serves up authentic Mozambican and Portuguese food. The menu features a wide selection of foods that are flavorful and generously portioned.

They only use the freshest herbs, spices, and ingredients when preparing their food. Cooking from the heart using recipes passed down from generation to generation has been a family tradition that has developed into Portuguese cuisine with an African influence.

Known for its flame-grilled birds and platters topped with pan-fried prawns coated in spices, olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic, the menu has gained recognition since its launch. Every item, including the exquisite chicken served with tomato rice and sweet potato fries and the luscious prawns in their special sauce, is expertly prepared to guarantee a delightful dining experience.

Because red meat is still much desired in South Africa, Beira Alta offers enormous quantities that are slathered in the chef’s unique sauces and are sure to satisfy even the pickiest meat eater. Still, the best-selling item is seafood. Classic recipes that will delight your palate, whether they are served mild or hot.

“A relentless dedication to excellence and an unwavering refusal to settle for less has and will sustain Beira Alta’s long-term success!”
