“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Great atmosphere, we ordered a sampling plate of all appetizers which was heavenly. They come with a plate that shows all the fish and you select which one you like. Its not cheap BUT worst every dollar.

Great for romantic or business meeting

“Perhaps it was an off night”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2014

Eagerly anticipated a celebratory meal with old friends, and picked Chiado based on reviews and few highly regarded alternatives open for Sunday dining. Seating was comfortable, and ambience good for us (we could actually hear each other talk--too rare these days), but the food preparation was disappointing and (given that) overpriced. Both variants of the traditional seafood stew were overcooked, with inadequate care given to timing of cooking each ingredient. Other fish mains were only OK. Grilled sardine ap was good, and octopus ap excellent. Maybe the "B" team was on in the kitchen. Overall, a disappointment.

“Chiado is Perfect.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014

From the welcome, to the service, to the food, Chiado was a wonderful experience.

The Sardine appetizer was spectacular. The fresh fish main was a tricky fish flown in from Madeira, that could easily have been a mushy mess. Instead it was perfection!

The wine pairing was exceptional. The quality far surpassing my initial reservations.

Chiado is a place I will happily recommend moving forward, to my clients!

“Makes eating a total event”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

If you love seafood, and casual yet exquisite service, this is a Must Go To Restaurant. Tremendous attention to detail, friendly unassuming, very well informed service, and a wonderful evening of food and friends.The food was delicious, fresh, incredible. Perfect portions, well balanced, good on the palette and the eye. Everything about it made it a memorable night.
