“Pretty nice”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

We went here as an alternative to all the French food we've had in Canada.

The restaurant was pretty much empty on the Tuesday night we went there which probably caused the atmosphere score. Saying that, the place is decked out in a fairly general mid range Mediterranean restaurant.

The menu choices were nice and varied. After a previous bad experience with seafood (at the CN tower), my other half wanted to stick to meat and there was a reasonable choice there.

I stuck to piri piri prawns followed by octopus and it was pretty good to be honest. Nothing spectacular but good nonetheless.

My other half's chorizo followed by chicken was equally good.

Not somewhere to go out of your way for but OK.

“Excellent Food And Service”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

We chose Adega for our anniversary dinner on a recent trip to Toronto, because we had recently been to Portugal and we enjoyed the food there. Our dinner at Adega was as good as any we had in Lisbon or Porto. We highly recommend the seafood bisque, the sauteed black tiger shrimp and especially the house specialty, Cataplana, a Portuguese fresh fish stew. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the service was outstanding. We asked our waiter for a wine recommendation based on our preferences and he brought us an excellent selection--and not the most expensive one in the cellar. The manager checked with to see if everything met our expectations. The decor is attractive and there is an outdoor seating area. Overall Adega was an excellent choice for a memorable dinner.

“Great food and wine”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

I suggest going downstairs into the cellar, the room is great, next to all the wine collections. Good price for food, good size portions and romantic atmosphere.
