If you want to taste the typical portucal meals, you must visit Prtucale restaurant. It is in the centre of Warsaw, near the Warszawianka. The most delicious is tuna on the hot stone and other dishes of fishes. In the same places is a wine shop in which you can buy a lot of portucal wines, which you try in... More

We found this restaurant on the way from WAW airport to Lublin. It has an atmosphere trying to recall Lisbon but the menu gives mainly Polish dishes. What has positively impressed is the quick service and the very good quality/price ratio. It was a good choice specially for the reason of our stop.

Everything in Portucale is becoming worse and worse: the food (especially lunch) and the service. The lunch portion of mussels was small and the mussels themselves were small. As for the service, when you finish nobody bothers to take away your empty plates, nobody asks if you would like to have a cup of coffee or anything else. All in... More

If you like fish, or more generally, if you like good food, you should try "Portucale". Actually, the place consists of two parts: a restaurant and a wine bar. I know the restaurant and I can sincerely recommend it. There is one disadvantage: the place is quite distant from the usual tourist routes in Warsaw, in the Mokotow district, close... More

I recommend Portucale for lunch. The best choice would be cataplana de bacalhau, traditionally prepared in a special pot. Another Portucale specialty is a whole grilled octopus, probably the best in town. The service....... well, slow as always, so be ready to pay at the desk to avoid waiting for the waiter.

I have been here twice or three times, and the food was just ok. Service was slow, but wine selection was good. Probably wouldn't return.

Been to Portucale twice now in a month. Food reallyl quite good, but very salty. Service is decidedly disappointing. They ignore you, they forget orders, general feeling of not being really bothered. The old Portucale used to be so attentive in their service.

We always enjoy the food here. They also have an excellent wine shop, well stocked with a wide variety of prices.

Every time i go there i order the Portuguese fish casserole which always taste great. I have always had great experience a with good service at this restaurant. The only feedback is that the place don't look at all Portuguese.

Tempted by the overall good feedback we decided to have lunch at Portucale. The initial impression were quite good - good ambience, friendly staff and a very interesting menu. Even a free parking! Too bad what followed wasn't nearly as good. The breaded, deep-fried shrimp dumplings were simply bland - I really missed even a hint of the shrimp flavour... More
