Had Sunday lunch at this Johannesburg gem. I think it is the inspiration for the Adega chain, but the place is authentic, tasty, good value and well run. The menu is in English and Portuguese and the music is strictly from Portugal - so you...More

I had heard that the Adega do Monge had gone downhill in recent years. What a pleasure to discover that this was completely false. Excellent touches in so many aspects of the fresh, home-style cooking. Must have a very special butcher to have meat of...More

Starters, main and wine all excellent. Service good and best of all a great environment. Adega do Monge manages to bring it all together. One of the best restaurants in Jozi.

Visited during my recent trip to Joberg. Despite being a busy evening, the service was commendable. We ordered Prawn Nacional, Chourico and Portuguese fillet steak. The food was fresh and so delicious. The prawns were yummy and the steak was perfectly cooked. Will definitely go...More

Although the service was ok, the manager was a problem. As a group all sitting at different tables, we requested split bills. She insisted that as we booked as one, we could not have separate bills. REALLY. She came up with the excuse that she...More
