Great authentic home-style Portuguese food, prepared the Chef Daniel himself. A good change from the usual chain restaurants in the city of Surrey outside of Vancouver. A few Italian-inspired dishes since the Chef worked for various Italian places in the past. Often rare to see Portuguese restaurants here, specially out in the suburb, but this one is an excellent change... More

We decided to come Saturday evening (June 11th) on the spot. I've never heard about the Chefe Daniel's Restaurant but I've heard many time how great the Portuguese cuisine is, and we weren't disappointed at all. The service was perfect, the choice and price are perfect as well. We started with an appetizer, a "Pastéis de Bacalhau", then we choose... More

Only average. Cold food...cold restaurant. Did not live up to the yelp and trip advisor ratings...maybe self imposed?! Will not be back.

Visited on a cold and wet Sunday evening in January and found very few other diners, which was a shame because our experience was excellent. The space is welcoming and with a little more buzz from other diners it could be very good. The tables are not crammed in and there are two main eating areas. The staff are welcoming... More

The food here is fresh, and the potatoes and vegetables that accompanied my husband's meal were very good. But his fish and my pasta were full of chunks of raw garlic. The grilled calamari appetizer was good, but too much sauce and again, too much garlic. Too bad as we would have loved a new "go to" spot here in... More

Well , I had visited this restaurant several times when it was an Italian restaurant and decided to give it a shot now that it changed hands and chef's. I figured Portuguese fair would be a great date night and had read reviews that made me excited to dress up and ignite my palate. With my husband in tote, I... More

I had an absolutely inspired meal! Chefe Daniel's is my new favourite restaurant. How good can a calamari appetizer be? Let me tell you... It was immaculately done and the green sauce was so good we ordered extra bread just to get all of it. All of the details were spectacular. I had a peri peri cornish hen. Chefe Daniel... More

Been hearing about this place and thought I would give it a try. Right away Tony the owner greeted us at the door. The waiter was pleasant and very nice. I wanted a little addition to my meal and it was "no problem". "We will make it as you wish" he said. I had the Cannelloni which was very rich... More

My girlfriend took me here for my birthday dinner. The ambiance is like stepping back in time. You almost feel like you are dining in someones home. The premise including the washrooms is immaculately clean. All of the waiters were attentive and friendly without being obtrusive. We both had veal and it was was well flavoured. I would return without... More

Had dinner here. Wait staff all men, service attentive. Had ravioli, would rate it pretty average fare. BF had prawn dish, was good with some pasta with lots of yummy basil in the sauce. Shared a dessert, chocolate caramel bombe. Pretty good. Ended with cappuccino, I love my cap and this one was pretty bad. Disappointed with that, expecting very... More
