This is a regular haunt for us and with good reason. Authentic delicious Portuguese food every time. There are very few restaurants I will keep going back to, but this is definitely one of them.

Definitely best restaurant in Rochford. Always a buzzing atmosphere. Food was amazing - ribeye skewers and ribs cooked perfectly to order. Waitress very attentive and fast with our drinks. Loads of food, great price - would highly recommend!

Visited with friends, we were a party of 6, 2 of whom have never been before. Despite being very busy the service was faultless. Attentive staff, AMAZING food, great atmosphere. This is my favourite restaurant by far. The food is always spot on. Just one...complaint... I'm always too full for dessert 😅 The cheesecakes are the best I have ever tasted. I always have to bring some home ❤ Our 'virgin' friends can't wait to return despite living miles away. Well done. See you soon xxxMore

Just got back from a last minute meal at the skewer house. £86 got us more than enough tender grade A meat, (2 lamb 1 chicken 1 steak) 8 sides, a litre of sangria and a coke. One very full and happy family. Waitress was...very friendly and full of chatter. Will definitely be revisiting and also trying out their other restaurant in westcliff.More

We went for an impromptu lunch date with my mother in law. Service was amazing friendly and warm- nothing was too much trouble for the bubbly waitress Tania. When our plates arrived we were blown away by the portion size coupled with the extremely affordable...prices charged on their lunch menu. The food was super fresh and tasted amazing I was so happy with my beef picardo and my mother in law enjoyed her peri chicken with salad and rice as well. I highly recommend a trip to Skewer House, Rochford for a delicious and tasty lunch 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️‘s and dinner is pretty good too.More

There is parking nearby, but it is a very small, cramped restaurant, great for atmosphere, but not ease to manoeuvre about in, not too sure about the toilets. Sorry for the delay in responding
