“Great Service & great atmosphere”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

The best Portuguese food we tasted in Toronto so far. We were there for the Summerlicious menu.

The appetizer - Gilled Squid was perfectly cooked. Grilled Sardines was excellent.

Main course: Seabream and Roasted Breat of Capon - both were well prepared. Especially the Capon, for chicken to be that juicy.

Dessert - white chocolate flan & Moloto - the presentation for both dishes were great & the sweetness just to out liking.

From service to the meal itself, Chiado was absolutely incredible (even down to the folding of the napkins)! The food was flavourful and the portions were perfect. Atmosphere is great, wine is reasonably priced.........We will definitely be back!

Every time we come to Toronto we have dinner here. We are always impressed with every single culinary delight that came out of the kitchen. It is unbelievably delicious and satisfying.
One of by favorite place in Toronto to eat fish dishes.

“Fantastic”
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”
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.
