We went to Portucale with the family of 8. The service was very slow. The restaurant that night was understaffed, only two people served the whole place. The food is ok. Not impressive. The atmosphere and the music is a bit outdated.

Very much a special occasion place. Old-fashioned table side service. Very welcoming to us American tourists. Food was excellent versions of Portuguese classics.

We arrived 30 minutes early for a 7:30pm reservation...BIG MISTAKE! No bar opened no bars nearby and no access to the lift to view the sunset. The hotel is very dated and tired so we were very concerned as to what was to come. Six...More

On the 14th floor of Miradouro Hotel, Portucale boasts incredible views to the city. Although it’s kind of a pricey place, many of us Portuenses visit on occasions, because tall buildings aren’t very common in our city, let alone the ones with restaurants. Service and...More
