ADEGA, meaning wine cellar, is an authentic Portuguese restaurant by a team of Michelin-trained chefs Jessica and David. Simple but elegant food is perfectly complemented by the restaurant's smart casual environment. We serve fresh fish and seafood alongside a selection of salted cod and meat dishes.

The food in this unassuming location is delicious and well-presented by a competent staff in simple but elegant ambiance. It is deservedly one of San Jose’s best restaurants, earning this city’s first Michelin-star. The prix-fixe menu offers 5, 7, or 9 courses with several amuse-bouches...More

Our group of 4 ordered the Chef’s Tasting menu – 7 courses. I was pleasantly surprised when they said we did not all have to order the same menu – nice to know you have that option. The restaurant has a more casual, relaxed feel....More
