It's a basic motel restaurant with the best peri peri chicken at the best price around. Don't go for the ambience but the food !

Nikita's menu has become expensive and it does not offer good value for money. Food is average at best. Service is way below standard.

Excellent portuguese food and exellent service. Well stocked wine list a little expensive in comparrison with other establishments in the area. Caiperinha served on ice cubes not the same as on crushed ice and @R40 expensive in a short whiskey glass, a bit of a rip off seeing Nikita cocktail was served in a beer mug also @R40. On a... More

We went to Harties for a leisurely drive on Women's Day and on impulse stopped to have lunch at Nikita's primarily because it was a Portuguese restaurant . The service was extremely poor . Our waiter was obviously a trainee which didn't help . A simple drinks order for a Caiparinha and Poncha was too complicated for them to deliver... More

Went to Nikita today. Ordered Crumbed Mushrooms. Mushrooms ok but sauce disgusting. Also ordered Squid Head. My word two teaspoons of minute squid heads a little sauce , bread? Disgusting. Value for money nil. Entertainment awful. Far too loud and bad entertainer. Paid and left. our second bad experience. Won't be going there again.

We recently had breakfast at Nikita's during a bike ride. Unfortunately they were in the middle of a power failure but indicated that cooking breakfast would be no problem. They were not able to provide hot drinks - which was not a huge problem (however, if you have a gas stove it should be easy enough to boil water). We... More

Average cuisine basic accommodation friendly service. I think more of a Saturday daytime festive joint than a couples venue on a road yrip

Often passed this restaurant thinking its a motel wanna be restaurant.Recent experiences have changed all that perceptions.Place is next to main road, accessible and good parking space.I love my Peixe and Galinha dishes, no doubt the owners have done a fabulous job to bring out their Portuguese heritage.The food is tasty - fresh and big portions, as genuinely authentic as...

Had a great peri peri chicken and my girl friend was delighted with the empanada beef. George the waiter was friendly and helpful. As we were due to leave South Africa the next day we decided to go back and enjoy our last big bit of beef before returning to the tougher steaks of Europe. Oh my! What a mistake.... More

We waited for 25 minutes for ONE drink in an almost empty restaurant while 3 waiters were standing in the corner playing and joking with one another. When we eventually walked out and warned other patrons about the useless service the response was " Oh no, not AGAIN the same bad service!".. Do NOT waste your time going to this... More
