Portuguese fare and hearty hospitality at a fair price. The arrival of Adega brings Portuguese cuisine and a hint of Mozambican fusion to the Lowveld. For restaurateur Fred Rossouw, Nelspruit’s first Adega restaurant is another feather in his cap after 16 years in the trade. With two other successful Adega restaurants already operational in Midrand and Kempton Park, it’s already a winning formula. The story of Adega – which translated means ‘the cellar’ – began in the late ‘90s when founder Luis Ferreira identified a gap in the Johannesburg market place. Back then there were few good eateries which allowed for Portuguese people to gather and enjoy Portuguese fare and traditional hospitality. Being in another line of business entirely. Luis opened the first “Adega do Monge” translated as “the cellar of the monk” in Kensington, east of Johannesburg. And so the Adega Logo was born, showing a happy monk indulging in good wine. The franchise has also won Best of Johannesburg for five consecutive years. Adega also has its very own cookbook, Fiesta! – The Adega Cookbook. The new 180-seater restaurant in Nelspruit is open seven days a week, with an emphasis on value for money. With oysters from R4.90 each, to a kilo of King prawns for R119.00, Adega’s prices (and flavours) are hard to beat.

In addition to seafood, Adega has become recognized for their chicken, meat, fish and sushi. Sundays offer a buffet with a difference, where everything is fresh and the variety is wide, including eisbein and a lamb shank that has locals talking.

The restaurant can accommodate conference groups of up to 40 people in a fully equipped private area, and children are catered to in Adega playroom complete with X Box technology to keep them occupied. The Adega staff are trained with the simple ethos of good service underpinning everything they learn.

With hand painted linen and warm candle light evenings, Adega offers an inviting ambience with food that is fresh and plentiful.
