We have been visiting Diogo's restaurant for the last eight years and have always received excellent food and service. A lovely traditional Portuguese restaurant. The piri piri chicken is fantastic. There is a good selection of other dishes on the menu but I always go for piri piri, the traditional dish of Guia. No hesitation in recommending. You can see... More

Lovely to get back to Guia and first stop Palladium for an honest Portuguese meal, well cooked by Batiste and served with style by Diogo or Joao. Menu is simple and tasty with excellent fresh salad and terrific wines. Been a fan for 12 years and even though Diogo threatens to retire, know that the tradition will live on. Parabens!

The staff were AMAZING asked the children's names and treated them very well. The adults were treated very well but usually are in most restaurants. Don't expect fancy digs just... More

We visited here as a party of four after reading excellent reviews on trip advisor. We were certainly not disappointed. All the food that we tried was delicious and extremely reasonable. We started with fresh bread, butter, cheese and sardine pate. For the main course three of us sampled the Piri-Piri chicken and one person had a steak. We all... More

This evening we wanted some quick simple food. I am beginning to learn that fine dining with a 1 year old becomes less frequent! Hence the decision for quick simple food. Having taken advice from TripAdvisor we ended up at the palladium. A gentleman welcomed us in and shook my hand. He really was an absolute gentleman. The service was... More
