The Troyeville Hotel Restaurant

Enjoy tasty and unfussy Portuguese cuisine with a Mozambican influence at this authentic little neighbourhood hotel in edgy Troyeville, east of Maboneng. The bar attracts a regular crowd, especially when there's a rugby game on at the nearby stadium and while the retro Flamingo mural in the dining area is a part of the hotel's history, most days food is served at the upstairs restaurant with its terrace and wraparound views of Hillbrow's tower blocks including the famous Ponte building and Hillbrow Tower. The place has a lot of cred with left-leaning activists, artists and musicians, and also hosts regular book evenings with a focus on contemporary non-fiction and South African politics as well as live music events. For these you need to book in advance.

Menu items include tasty calamari, grilled prawns, rump steak trinchado, peri peri chicken and chicken livers. For non-meat eaters The Troyeville serves an excellent grilled haloumi salad. Book for Sunday lunch. There's also a breakfast menu from 9am, and a dessert menu full of retro South African specialities such as bread and butter pudding, 'Pudim de Caramelo' and Tia Maria Coffee.

Within walking distance of Emirates Airline Park Stadium on match and live performance days the hotel is jam-packed, and it's a perfect stop when attending events there. Booking is essential. The Troyeville is also a good stop when you are visiting the Ellis Park Rugby Museum which is situated at the stadium.
