Having been to this restuarant a number of times as we love peri peri chicken and other Portugese dishes, we took some friends with us. The peri peri chicken was on special that evening and all four ordered it but only one, myself, ordered peri peri. The rest had lemon and herb chicken. We had two starters of sardines which... More

Very nice vibe. Lively. Live music on Thursdays. The right place to have a party. And the food is good.

Casa is a great restaurant to visit in winter as the fireplace creates a nice atmosphere. Food is great yet average. Staff friendly and helpful.

As soon as I saw the Portuguese flags, bar counter and big screen TV, I knew we were in trouble. And so we were... This is more of a pub with a Portuguese theme than a restaurant. With food to match. Painfully slow service with mediocre food. Don't expect authentic Portuguese food. This isn't the place for it. Things are... More

We love Portuguese food but were disappointed in our meal. No portuguese flavours in the lemon and herb flavoured chicken-not even salt. It tasted like boiled chicken. Peri peri sauce on the side was very hot. My grilled calamari was very tough. Even the chips had no flavour. Only good thing about our visit was the friendly service.I found the... More

We love Thursday evenings with live music from the old days. Not many places where 50+ with a zest for live can get together, have a great time and dance till you drop. Even our children (in their 20's) just love the vibe. Very busy on Thursdays so bookings essential, no space as tables are packed in close - but... More

We used to go to this restaurant quite often with friends and just two of us. We though it was about time we had some of their excellent Ostrich Espatadas. Unfortunately they did not have any Ostrich but I did have some very nice beef Espatadas, perfectly cooked. The menu is predominantly Portuguese and although its not a "fancy" place... More

We've enjoyed evenings at Casa Valdez before, so were looking forward to taking friends from out of town. It wasn't a busy night so there shouldn't have been much pressure on the kitchen or the service staff. I ordered chicken livers in a creamy garlic sauce (delicious as usual); the other orders were sardines, a Valdez salad, and two rump... More

Our recent third visit would also be our last. We are often out (spur of the moment) looking for an early dinner, only to find Casa Valdez is are either not open or we could not get a table booked. So pretty popular and I really don't know why. The food is certainly not fantastic. Perhaps it is the lack... More
