When wondering where to go to eat and for a change ,my friend suggested that we try O'Picado. We had considered it before but not got round to it. We will certainly go again .It was a good suggestion. The selection of fish on the menu was varied and plenty. Something you would expect in a seaside town but rarely... More

Lovely restaurant with great character and great service. The outdoors covered area is rhe best place to sit, although in winter do sit near the heaters if it's cold. I have enjoyed everything I have tried on the menu, especially the tapas. Highly recommended.

Went to see Women in Black at the Palace Theatre Westcliff and wanted a pre dinner meal. O'Picado looked very welcoming from the outside so we went in. Wow, what a find. It was only 6.30pm and we were first in. This is very much a family run restaurant and we were greeted by two big smiles as we walked... More

I have been going here for a few years with the kids and it's just such a top notch restaurant. The food is superb. Always cooked to order with care and attention. As a family with young children we are treated with care and respect just as much as everyone else. I love the decor and quirkiness. Nothing 'is too... More

We were seated in a type of covered alley way. Blankets were provided on the seats for us to keep warm with while we waited for a set Christmas evening meal. This set meal took one and a half hours to arrive. I have never had over cooked mashed sprouts with bits of bacon on top. Anything asked for off... More

I came here for a meal with my other half after being tired of chain restaurants. its a well decorated, nicely finished joint with friendly staff. They entertained us until our grub arrived, which was very nice and well proportioned. homemade food at its best. Definately recommended.

Authentic Portugese cafe restaurant. Service is friendly and polite. We visited for lunch/brunch with coffee; the food cooked to order and was very good. Like most Portugese cafes, they serve good, strong coffee too. Traditional themed interior with plenty of seating at the rear of the restaurant.
