“Best restaurant in East London by a country mile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

This by far and away the best restaurant in East London. I have lived in the area all my life and this restaurant beats the competition hands down. The menu is genuinely Portuguese and everything is freshly prepared and tastes heavenly - especially the seafood - try the prawns with chilli! It's extensive with something for everyone and the kitchen is more than happy to accomodate any special requirements.

The service is excellent - Vitor and Susana pride themselves on the quality of the product they serve and you are not disappointed. And dont even get me started on value for money!

enjoy!

“East London Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

My (early 20s) daughter and I found this restaurant a year ago when Sheffield Utd played at Orient, two minutes walk away, and we were very impressed with the quality and value for money of the food. Went back last Saturday with wife and older son, and if anything the quality was better! Really good lunch, excellent service, nothing was too much trouble. If you like Portuguese food - and who wouldn't - I don't know of anywhere better in London. Looking round at the people who were lunching at the same time as us, I think the majority of the Portuguese and/or Brazilian population of London feel the same way. Just a pity it's so far away from where we live, so here's hoping Orient draw Sheffield Utd in the Cup this year! Otherwise, we'll be back next year...

“Have used this for many years...always excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

we live very close to this restaurant and probably eat there about once a week, the service is always great and the menu has a huge choice, the fish is always good as are the steaks. the drinks also are good as is the choice. its probably the best place around and is often very busy at weekends so book ahead.

“Best restaurant for miles in east London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

I've been to oceano a few times already and I swear it gets better every time!
Try the octopus in paprika sauce or the prawns in a lemon and chilli sauce. Love the veal T bone steak, ever do juicy and tender. The wine list goes on forever with a great choice. They serve Sagres beer too, ice cold as it should be. Don't let me go on forever just try this place!
