We were in Mexico City for four nights and our Mexican friends took us here on our last night. There couldn't have been a better way to cap our visit. We had smoked salmon and grilled asparagus for appetizers, followed by a variety of cod dishes for our main course. Everything was seasoned and cooked to perfection! The “vino verde”... More

Went for a breakfast meeting. Staff was what your would expect of a high end establishment, The waiter was really patient and he explained everything well about the menu. The surrounding is also nice. Well-decorated. Definitely would go back again.

There is a expression in Spanish called “Bueno, Bonito y Barato” generally referred to a place that is not only nice but also with a great balance between quality and price. That expression is, in fact, similar to the English expression “more value for your money”. Casa Portuguesa is a place that honors that expression. It is a pretty nice... More

I went to Casa Portuguesa for lunch with a few colleagues. Food is excellent. Not really portoguese but really delicious and well presented. Sitting outside in a warm day is lovely and you can see nice people walking by during their lunch break. Unfortunately services is messy and none seem to be in charge or coordinating it

A nice restaurant with a variety of Portuguese dishes... The food is well prepared and flavored, but is still missing some condiments to be as Portuguese flavor food. Still is good to go when missing Portugal.

Met some great friends, and follow this recommendation for breakfast. They have a wide selection, so you will find something you like, even if you don't eat eggs (like my wife). I had the Huevos Arlequín, which had my favorite flavors (salsa roja, verde, chilaquiles & bacon!!!). The cafe con leche was perfect! This was a niece surprise, since I... More

I had heard so much of this restaurant, and frankly I was disappointed. Not the quality of food and service they brag about.

We had two wonderful meals at Casa Portuguesa, returning a second time. Try the Camerones Piri Piri, the Croquetas de bacalao, the Pulpo a la Portuguesa, and a delectable Ensalada Carioca with mango, cucumber, avocado, and hearts of Palm. Service was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. Buen provecho.

You would love the place, the staff service, the mood on Friday nights with live Portuguese music, and off course the food and wine! I am totally honest saying I do not dislike nothing about this restaurant. A tip for Sunday's lunch if you go in a big party: be there before 1:30 pm and be prepared to have a... More

Fabulous location with views of the park in Polanco, good selection on the menu, and the puddings are delicious! Only downside is that if you sit on the terrace there are a lot of street sellers and others......so if you want to sit on the terrace best not be right on the outside. A favourite for weekends.
