Me and my boyfriend -who is portuguese- passed along the restaurant and by coincidence saw the advertisement regarding a 3-course dinner with live Fado! We liked the idea and we booked: despite some difficulties (the table was not stable, the staff was too busy to take care of all the needs and from a course to another we waited at... More

Not real Portuguese food and at the day of the visit they were out of codfish, and stake, the inly two Portuguese meals in the menu. We order a Brazilian dish on the menu that was not done correctly and none of the desserts were traditional. The restaurant doesn't even try to be authentic

Friendly but very very slow not attentive service, had to wait for a glass, had to wait for the menu, they served my dish to another table and never came back with the salad they promised.... Very tiring... Food was okay but far from Portuguese standards. I've ordered a "moqueca" if you are Brazilian/Portuguese you will know what I mean.... More

The prices are low and food is excellent. Typical Portuguese way of serving food. Low on ambiance, but excellent in everything else. Definitely a restaurant to remember. Close to the theatre and parking garage if you're planning on combining for an evening out!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Utrecht. They serve food from Portugal (and Portuguese-speaking countries) with a Dutch twist here and there. The atmosphere is relaxed, the furniture and decoration transport you to Portugal, and the music—Portuguese and from the Portuguese-speaking world—invites you to sit back and enjoy. The food is affordable, simple, and delicious. The wine selection... More

This restaurant was a complete disappointment, after having great experiences in many Portuguese restaurants in Canada. The cuisine was very far from the real Portuguese cuisine. My girlfriend ordered the dish of the day which was supposed to be ''fresh fish'' but was tasteless and cold. The ready to make captain Iglo fish tastes better. What a waste of time... More

Okay interior. Okay ambiance. Okay service. Okay food. Okay wine. Great value. Nice Portuguese restaurant close to 'de stadsschouwburg' (cities theatre). It's not exquisite, but it's nice. Neither is it expensive, so value is great.

I found myself living and working in the Netherlands a few years ago. Having lived in Lisbon for several years and experienced the range of Portuguese cuisine across the country, I must say that I really miss good Portuguese food. It's quite hard to find a good Portuguese restaurant abroad because to pull off good Portuguese food cuisine requires simple... More

We visited on the recommendation of a friend. Fish soup and pulpo salad as starter followed by cataplana ( a mixed fish dish for two) which came with salad and chunky chips. The size of the portions were good enough. Vegetarian options are also available. Service is fast enough. That with two beers came to 46 euro. To be honest... More

A restaurant that’s been around for many years already, which this time we visited with our Portuguese friend. It is simple but good. It has an authentic Portuguese kitchen with a Portuguese speaking waiter/owner and one cook. So maybe when it is really busy you have to wait a little longer for the food. Don’t expect high cuisine but for... More
