I have always enjoyed the odd meal at O'Portuga, mainly because of the cosmopolitan feel and the not usual crowd of locals that frequent the same place over and over again. Normally I have a traditional dish - their calamari and fish dishes are good, the chicken perri-perri is excellent.
However this time round I ordered the calamari tubes - not the normal small tubes - these are typical Portuguese style, so they are large and more like a "steak". I had eaten these before and last time round they were delicious, this time round they were tough and not great, they were accompanied with chips which were a little overdone and quite oily.
I just hope that this is not the sign of things to come and they start to regress into complacency.
To quote another contributor " remember to ask for the "Gindungo" - a fiery home-made chili condiment" it is fantastic, they should bottle it and sell it.
Next time I will revert to the chicken!
