Feel like family at Senhore Jose!

Senhore Jose

When you come across a restaurant with brilliant service, and whose owner makes you feel like part of the ‘familia’, well that is just the cherry on top!

Joe Pereirinha runs a little Portuguese/Mozambican-style restaurant called Senhore Jose in Honeydew, Johannesburg. He’s been open for business since last year and is fast becoming a favourite on Joburgers’ lists!

And for good reason, from the moment you arrive you feel right at home. Joe will introduce himself and share stories about his passion for travel and food.

The Food!

The atmosphere is relaxed and inviting and the menu has typical dishes like chicken, prawns, calamari and espatada. I opted for the beef espatada and hubby, the calamari. Both dishes were so perfect that we polished them off in no time at all!

This was washed down with their legendary white sangria… summer in a glass!

It was so good, that another jug was the order of the day.

Joe says; “We work hard to bring authentic Portuguese/Mozambican cuisine to our guests but more importantly it’s made fresh to order in a very relaxing environment, away from the hustle and bustle of the malls.”

If you are looking for the real deal, where you can relax, chat, feel at home whilst enjoying the best food at reasonable prices, well then Senhore Jose is the pace for you!

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
