Hungry? Then you’d best head on down to Port Elizabeth to wine, dine and enjoy the coffee grinds. Honestly, P.E. has some of the best restaurants around. Unsung heroes, up and comers, and good ol’ faithful’s: you can find just about anything to suit your fancy in the ‘Friendly City’. 

Get those rumbly tummies some attention at these 3 top restaurants in Port Elizabeth.

The Royal Delhi

If you’re thinking Indian, you’d be right. If you’re thinking curry and nothing else, you’re dead wrong. The Royal Delhi offers fantastic oriental cuisine, with a few western staples for pickier customers. The buzz is that this restaurant has friendly service and curries to turn chilli-haters into spice fundi’s. 

What’s On The Menu?

The Royal Delhi has a wide range of dishes, but one of the most popular is the Royal Delhi Prawns – 6 pan-fried prawns cooked in lemon butter and served with rice. If that’s not the definition of moreish, then what is? Perhaps the lamb madras, chicken tikka or Delhi curry special which includes sambals and papadums. They have a vast selection of spicy and mild curries to suit your taste buds.
 
They also have salads, grills – fillet and chops – and poultry dishes. If you have a bit of a sweet tooth, you might be interested in trying their Crème Brule or chocolate mousse cake.

El Greco

Feeling a little Mediterranean? Then El Greco is the place for you. Their cuisine is described as Afro-Grecian, with a hearty mix of South African dishes (steaks, chicken, salads etc) with zingy Greek sauces. 

What’s On The Menu:

El Greco features grills and seafood, with the strong influence of Greek flavours. They have a daily special of 1KG of prawns for R120. The most popular dishes seem to be the Fillet a la Greca, as well as their ribs and mouth-watering lamb shank. They have a separate bar, and smoking area, and also provide vegetarian dishes. They provide for conferences and functions including business events and birthday parties, and couple this with outside catering services. 

They do take-aways if you fancy the food but aren’t into their authentic and casual ambience.
