“Hmmm....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2012

Went here few years ago and really enjoyed it!- but it's not cheap. So went on a special occasion n few weeks ago, food very average not worth the money. However friendly family run restaurant. If ur looking for chic and modern this is not the restaurant for u.

“Good food, good host!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2012

I have been to casa portuguesa many times, in fact it is my favourite place to have a birthday meal. I do like the fact that they welcome you with a bowl of bread and olives, for which so many places now charge extra.

It is a varied menu, with equal numbers of fish and meat dishes, too numerous to mention here - the perennial favourites with the clientele seem to be the sizzlers like the steak that cooks itself on a hot stone or the chorizo that comes to the table still aflame. Excellent espetada (skewered meat and fish) too.

The manager is always warm and welcoming. To get the best atmosphere, you need to go on a Friday night when the guitarist is there (but you probably need to book ahead).

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

My husband ordered a dish that contained lots of potatoes, not being aware of this, the waiter did not advise when he ordered a portion of potatoes for himself, found the food rather greasy. Visited on a weekday evening, we had the place to ourselves, no atmosphere.

“My wifes favourite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2011

This is a great place to eat and with very friendly proprietors. Serves genuine Portugese food including the best fish stew and salt cod I have ever eaten. We go regularly for special occasions and will no doubt be visiting again soon.
