Welcome to Machics - where lekker food and a good time will surpass your expectations.

Machics is a restaurant with a very strong pub-like feel where we aim to serve the best quality food, at a reasonable price, while enjoying our customers and the time we spend with them.

We are a management team with almost 50 years of restaurant and pub experience. Steven and Stix run the kitchen providing great food with Dirk and Christine guiding the waiters with friendly service whilst enjoying the diverse clientèle.


The menu has a strong Portuguese influence and a few menu favourites include the Rib Eye on the Bone and the Portuguese Chicken. Machics has plenty on the menu if you are feeling a bit peckish – try the Munchies Basket (halloumi, chicken strips, beef samoosas, riblets and a sauce), the Prime Platter (Portuguese chicken cuts, pan-fried prawns and pork riblets with optional peri-peri) or the Snacker Platter (chicken strips, fried calamari, mushrooms, peri-peri and tartar sauce). Salads, Burgers, Tramezzinis and Light Meals are also available.


If you are looking for something a bit more substantial, order the Espetada (cubed sirloin, skewered with onion and green pepper then drizzled with traditional Portuguese sauce and served with a choice of starch) or the Full Chicken (traditionally grilled in the old LM style with a choice of lemon and herb or peri-peri and served with a choice of starch). Machics also has plenty of braai options which allow you to Pick Your Steak – Sirloin, Fillet or T-Bone and Choose Your Style of topping / sauce. All Braai dishes are served with a choice of chips, curly fries, baked potato and sour cream, salad or veggies.

We have a very wide selection of whiskey, beer and brandy. Something to suit everyone's taste! One visit and you will realise why so many others call us their favourite Restaurant and Alehouse.
