Superb meal and service. The giblet & liver starter very tasty and mains of Prawn, chicken and fish was yummy. The chicken is marinaded for 48 hours in sauces and spices and was succulent and tender when served. Couldn't have asked for better!

The food was average. Especially the fish was overcooked. The service was also not too great. However, overllit was value for money.

The food and atmosphere is good at Adega Northcliff. Nothing better than sitting on the balcony watching the moon-rise over Northcliff Koppie!, with good friends and scrumptious food. Will always return here for great Portuguese cooking. Service on the night was exceptional and we were treated like royalty!

The food and atmosphere is good Adega Northcliff, an update wine list will get me back for some more. Staff needs training on the menu but otherwise a good restaurant for couples and romance.

I really enjoy this restaurant and visit often. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is great with upstairs seating, fireplaces in winter and balcony seating in the summer. The seafood is fabulous and very good quality, and they have a very wide selection on their menu. I'm a non-drinker but they always make me a Virgin Mojito, which is... More

We've taken the family there a number of times and basically just visit other restaurants to break the habit every now and then, before we come back for more. Always friendly and professional with delicious food.

How can a Portuguese restaurant that is serving garlic prawns as well as other garlic dishes have no garlic bread, for goodness sake it only takes three ingredients, bread, butter and garlic. That off of my chest it was a reasonable restaurant offering a very wide range of dishes at a fair price
