We Arrived there at 21:00 and were turned away. We were told they no longer serving anyone else. That's just unacceptable during peak season with crowds walking in the streets at that time. So many people still looking for a place to eat!

I have Portuguese family who knows how to cook and this place was not the best in town, in my opinion did not really do Pora food any justice. Come on guys, youre in Umhlanga, you can do better and easy on the pricing.

What an awesome vibe! Great waiter and manager was on the floor and dedicated to his customers. Food was excellent!!! Disappointment that there was a small selection of cocktails. Will definitely return again!

Not sure about the reference to Mozambique, but the food was good and the service OK. As mostly happens the workers lack training or interest. In our case the wine never arrived and we just did not have to have it!!! But overall was happy...More
