Popped in and found a gem. We were impressed with the food, the decor and the staff. What a lovely treat. Can't wait to go back. Next time we will sit in the garden. You could have been on holiday. It was lovely. Thanks.

Having been to this restaurant many many times before with family and friends and not written a review, I felt that it deserves one because it is consistently welcoming. While the decor is a little shabby, it does appear real and unpretentious, and provides something towards the friendly atmosphere of what is a family owned and run local restaurant. The... More

Like many places that serve good food, the exterior won't impress, but just step over the threshold for a truly pleasurable experience. Good friends of ours had been often and asked us to join them for Friday night dinner. Food is excellent quality and plentiful. We had the family's specialty bread and olives which between the five of us was... More

Long time since I was here last, and have to say just as good as I remember it. The food was very good although the Lemon Meringue was not as good as I remember. The service was a little slow but the main was worth waiting for. Overall a good place to eat, and will not wait so long next... More

The food is always fantastic, the service is always great, friendly helpful staff who seem more than happy to serve you (which is sometimes hard to find!). I have visited on dates with my other half and also family weekend... More

We have been visiting O Picado for years. It is easily in the top two of my favourite places to eat in the Westcliff / Southend area. We popped back to celebrate 10 years of this restaurant on a Sunday afternoon for a "Madeiran Cultural Day". Staff were dressed in local costume. Fatima - the owner and incredible Head Chef... More
