“Portugal in Warsaw”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

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 to "Warszawianka" tennis courts, so if you happen to pass by, don't miss it. If your addiction to fish is strong or if you live in Warsaw and want to see something less common, you may even take a longer bus or tram trip to reach the restaurant. However, don't do that if you are in a hurry.

“great for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

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.

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

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.

“Bit disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

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.

“One of our favourite places”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

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