You don’t have to get on a plane to experience an afternoon or evening in the south of Portugal (yay!). There’s a much-loved restaurant right on our doorstep (actually, there are 14 of them dotted around the country). Calisto’s Portuguese Restaurant (best Portuguese restaurant) is super-authentic … and it would be seriously tough to have a bad time there – the atmosphere’s e-lec-tric and the menu has us coming back time and again. It presents the juiciest flame-grilled chicken, the finest seafood (grab the fam and go for the Grand Platter with lobster, prawns, calamari and mussels) and the tastiest meat (try the rump trinchado). But really, can you talk about a Portuguese restaurant without a mention of piri-piri? We think not … so we’ll tell you just how moreish Calisto’s very own, proudly South African, sizzling sauce is – but we recommend you try it for yourself.
