There was a time when O Portuga was one of my favorite restaurant mainly because they had delicious seafood in particularly the seafood kebab but this last year we went three times and each time was a disappointment. There is always something missing on the menu mainly in the seafood category and often the seafood kebab, the service is terribly... More

We visited the O portuga on a monday night and many of the dishes were not available. The food was bland and the only dish we had worth trying is the seafood pasta. But we only had fishdishes, mabye the are better with meat? The service was friendly but rather slow. And the waitress did not give the right information... More

I went back again because the fish and the veggies tested yummy. I enjoyed both lunches I had at this restaurant. I would recommend it to everyone who visits Windhoek.

Tasty and quite pleasant with Vegetables on the side, steamed and not greasy. Portuguese sausage style chorizo was also quite tasty. Service is friendly and efficient. Restaurant is not far from city centre (about 5 minutes by... More

Having spent a few days in the Namib Desert came into Windhoek looking for some decent food before hopping on a plane. O'Portuga did not disappoint at all. Both of us (my companion had been before) opted for the seafood kebab. Beautifully fresh, extremely juicy and hit the spot before the flight back to Europe. The service wasn't super speedy... More

The grilled sole and the white sangría were yummy. The price was reasonable. The service... well, not good at all: it seems every waitress is assigned to certain tables, so you must always ask for things to that waitress. If you approach a different one, you'll never get them!

What a wonderful place to eat! Extensive traditional Portuguese menu. I had chicken and was given amazing "jungle juice' by the manager which had my scalp sweating for hours. Service is excellent, wine menu extensive, and bear on tap to quench my never ending thirst. The restaurant is very clean, the toilets very good and clean, and in general, very... More
