Bocadillo’s on First provides excellent food and service


Freshly baked bread, scrumptious cakes and patisseries, good coffee and a varied menu befitting all tastes is what Bocadillos on First, has to offer.

Located in the centre of Port Elizabeth, in the popular Lemon Tree complex, this modern, upmarket restaurant merges edgy urban décor with Victorian architectural charm.

The restaurant is given an air of sophistication with- urban light fittings that create a cosy atmosphere, comfortable booths and modern details such as wall to wall shelves filled with wine.

The menu at Bocadillos is so extensive that it resembles that of a thin book, which offers a wide variety of gourmet ensembles. From city-chic starters to crowd pleasing desserts, there really is something for everyone.

On the dinner menu, customers can choose from mouth-watering salads, grilled meats, chicken dishes, seafood and burgers. There is also a pizza and pasta section.

They have an excellent wine list, with food and wine pairing suggestions.

I would recommend the Springbok Carpaccio consisting of slices of perfectly cured springbok, topped with parmesan shavings, sticky balsamic, rocket, capers and a drizzle of olive oil, it was simply delicious.

Filled with friendly chatter and smiling faces, Bocadillos on First is a lovely place to have a casual dinner with your friends and family.
