Nice warm welcome, staff very attentive. Chose a lovely banana cake which was delicious.
Nice atmosphere with cafe in between two streets which gave it a lovely design.
Only downside was the toilet a little further down the street, not far, but you had to be escorted by staff to open it up. Fine in good weather, but....
All in all a lovely place and as Portuguese, made a nice change for us. Would recommend and would go there again.

Almost authentic food, great location and good wine list. Have been going there consistently since it opened.

A cozy rather small Portuguese restaurant. I've been there a couple of times and food is really delicious and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Will surely be back.

Great food, friendly staff - but need to work on timing!
We ordered 2 drinks plus 2 glasses of tap water; and 3 food items.
2 drinks arrived within 5 minutes; 2 of the 3 food items arrived within 10....
The third food item arrived (after mentioning it) an hour later. And the glasses of water? Never!
Nevertheless - I'd recommend the custard tarts. But maybe to take away, if you're in a hurry.

Fantastic restaurant. I ordered octopus as a starter, it was fantastically well cooked and well seasoned. Then I had the Portuguese steak, similarly very well done, finishing with banana cake, to emph...asize the caramel that was formidable.
In relation to the service, I was always served in a very cordial way,that was making me feel at home.
Before all this, I have to say that this house in general, fulfills the necessary requirements in relation to quality-price...
thank you so much to all the staff...

I will be back again for sure.

PS: I had drink EA red wine that was stunning

Had a cracking meal and service here. We opted for multiple sharing platters as we wanted to try so many of the dishes. We were not disappointed and the food came out nice and quick so we had no about making the Theatre! See More

Popped in here for lunch as we were passing. Main meals are very small, think tapas size but at full main meal prices. I had a nice Carne de Porco Alentejana but at £12.90 it was ridiculously expensiv...e for 4 small cubes of pork, 3 or 4 clams and some potatoes. See More

They kindly seated us half an hour before our booked table, which made getting to the theatre a bit more relaxed. Food was very flavoursome and well cooked, and served very promptly. Portuguese Tarts ...were delicious as you would hope! Love wine, good prices. We would come back definitely. See More

One of the best restaurants to go in central London.
I recommend to enjoy the small dishes in a tapas style meal and share with friends.
In terms of wines, it has a great variety and quality.

Definately deserves a visit. Portuguese food for british once you dont have the portuguese portions. The alheira was delicious, chourico as pasteis de bacalhau as well. Both the dish of the day and ca...rne de porco a alentejana were delicious. The wines are not the typical portuguese wines but we had the Canela wine that was very good. I recommend. All in all was a very positive experience. See More

Great food but service slow (maybe not enough staff) - I was literally watching people sat for ages waiting for over 15 mins to have their order taken just walk out and nobody seemed to even notice.

This one my favourite, places to eat or just sit enjoying a glass of wine. Food & service is outstanding, space is wonderfully designed & atmosphere is simply superb. If you haven't been, highly recom...mend, you won't be disappointed! See More

Very nice staff. I am Portuguese so I was excited to go here. Superb service. Only negative, my cod was overlooked but overall very good

Very bad! Poor service and food was uneatable, my partner was unable to eat the sausage that was undercooked and looked nasty. My bacalhau was all potato and no fish. Unfortunately we ended up coughin...g up £56. Really disappointing. Won't be coming back. See More

Quaint small Portuguese cafe/ restaurant. Perfect ambience if you wish to avoid noisy large establishments. Food quality very good and fresh. Enjoyed Portuguese wine.
