I’ve been brought up to seek out those little Italian Trattorias and Portuguese Tavernas in side alleys, in unremarkable places and in unlikely locations, and have stumbled on food so good that I have never forgotten the experiences. O’Pescador is one of those places. With the skilled help of Mozambican chef Elias, who trained at the well-known Polana Hotel, O’Pescador delivers a Portuguese feast – and it has stood the test of time.

Glancing at the starter menu, my eye finds the Plate No 1, consisting of Calamari, Prego, Trenchado and Chicken Livers. Or the Plate No 2: with baby prawns, mussels and chourico – perfect for the whole table. Possibly one of the most exciting aspects of eating Portuguese style is to try many tapas style dishes, with flavours that burst in your mouth. Starters can be enjoyed alone, with tempting Prego trenchado and sardines appealing to our taste buds.

Portuguese cooking places an emphasis in seafood dishes, and O’Pescador delights with its offerings, starting with fresh fish dishes, from calamari tubes, to trout and kingklip. We were incredibly impressed with the option of crab curry, one of the restaurants signature dishes, consisting of a crab still in its shell and served in a coconut curry sauce. Yum! Prawns can be enjoyed in the traditional style (eaten with fingers, with smatterings of garlicky butter) or in a curry.

Meat dishes include the Portuguese steak, the Pescador steak, espetada, Prego trinchado and various steak cuts. They all sound mind-blowingly delicious!
