Beautiful fresh food every time. We were visiting too regularly and decided it was not a treat. We now visit once a month, the last time being at lunchtime. As always the food, the staff and the environment was perfect. This restaurant is great for a family celebration as numbers are never too much and it does not affect the... More

Went there for lunch, what a disappointment as I'm a regular visitor to Portugal and like Portuguese food. We were handed a tiny sheet of a menu with a unclear description of the dish. i.e. Pork, chicken or beef, less than basic. We had the salted cod which came with half cooked chips and a boring salad. We were left... More

we've been there few times and we always enjoyed everything. Yummy homemade food, rustic decorations, friendly and attentive staff, cosy surrounding especially down the back. Highly recommended if you want to try something different. Thanks

I went along last weekend and it seemed like the waitress didn't want business as I asked was it ok if we sat outside a table for 4, she asked had we booked. Inside was empty so I asked did I have to book? Her response was " we prefer if you book" I was told it was ok this... More

We love it here. So authentic, so friendly. Sometimes a little longer wait at weekend but that never put us off. The midweek tapas deal is superb.

Never thought I'd write a review like this for O Picado. I've been going there for years and it used to be one of my favourite restaurants, recommended to many friends. Went there last week and that all changed. There were three tables of customers and only once waitress. She was rushing around trying to serve everybody but it was... More

Have been to this restaurant twice, the first time it was very good but on the return visit it was just not up to our expectations and were disappointed with the food. We had to wait for our table after booking for some time, the waiters are very friendly but we will have to think again about returning.
