    Hi how do you say in Portuguese?

    'They told me they were OK and they would soon be arriving at the restaurant'

    I'm not sure which tense I need to use
    The conditional, which in Portuguese you do by adding the case ending ia; so:
    ...e que eles (or elas) logo chegariam ao restaurante.

    De nada.
    At least in Brazil, de pronto is not at all common. Maybe in Portugal? I'll let our Portuguese foreros answer that.
    In the meantime, I can also suggest: em breve, em pouco tempo; já.
