Located in the Colosseum Centre in Vanderbijlpark, Villa Verde is a Portuguese restaurant less than 3km from the Vaal River and one hour’s drive from Johannesburg. The eatery serves authentic Portuguese cuisine with a wide menu selection that is dedicated primarily to home-style cooking.
The eatery’s décor hints at nautical inspiration with a wooden deck, wooden frame ceiling, ring buoys, and frayed boat ropes. This is fused with European influences such as images of flamenco and fado dancers, Portuguese guitars hanging on the walls and vivid paintings of the country’s street scenes.
Popular menu items include the Portuguese steak, seafood and tripe stew. Kids are catered for with their own menu. Villa Verde has a reasonably-priced wine list, a range of beers available on tap and the venue is known for its cocktails
