We had a 5:30 pre-theatre dinner at Adega on December 3, 2009. We selected the restaurant because we’d happily eaten there previously and also because of its proximity to our guest and the subway. We were once again well pleased.
Although we ate far lighter than previously, our meals of grilled sardines and the seafood appetizer platter (for two and generous), accompanied by the house bread and olives and a bottle of red, were very good. Our selections were nothing refined, just honest, simple preparations. My daughter, who spent part of last summer in Portugal and fell in love with grilled sardines, was impressed.
Service was friendly and warm, without being obsequious. We managed to get to the theatre at the opposite end of town for an 8:00 pm performance with time to spare and without feeling rushed.
