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.
