“Just fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

had dinner with family mambers there on the 14/09/2012, and what an experience, from the begining to the end it was fabulous. one of my family members has problems standing up for to long so the owner brought all the little tasters to the table so we could have a go at them, and he also recommended a few dishes for us which he explained in detail so we knew what was on comming. And after we ordered a bottle of wine which was actually a reserve wine, they brought the wine to the table and after waiting for a while they finally open the bottle, which by itself is an experience, after dinner and deserts i asked for an Aguardente Velha, which is like an old brandy and again not served measurements, the bottle came to the table and it was a 40 year old one, the glasses were heated in front of us with the same drink which was disposed off into another one and then served the new drink into it. the service perfect, the food great, the waiters very frendly and proffessional; ok it is pricey but it is worth it and the next time i'm over i'm definitly going to the OXALA again.
