Excellent food, tasty, pure Portuguese cousin at its best. Defenetly a place to stop and enjoy good food, big range from sea food to meat. Forget all the food you have ever eaten...this is the place ;)

We had selected Portvcale as our destination after biking the Bristol to Bath cycle trail and were very pleased with our choice.

Truly family -un, we found a cuisine refreshingly different from what England often has to offer. We ordered 6 small dishes between the two of us, having arrived just half and hour before lunch service stops at 3pm and found it to be a good amount of food for our hungry post-ride appetites. We thoroughly enjoyed 5 out of the 6 dishes, finding them to be simple combinations of good ingredients from both land and sea. The sangria, both red and white were not only home made but mixed fresh in our glasses. Service was excellent and food was served in good time. We would recommend to any residents or visitors and hope to go back.

We've eaten here several times and the food is good home cooking and that's all it is really with presentation being a little lacking. Their credit card machine and coffee machine which weren't working the last time we visited still weren't working and really these are things that are urgent. And to run out of red wine! Service is very friendly but a bit hit and miss with things being forgotten or mixed up. The owner is charming but needs to be more focused on what he's trying to achieve. Is it a bar or is it a restaurant? It looks like neither so it's not the most pleasant of places to eat in this respect. We have eaten in almost every restaurant in Bath and really don't feel this deserves to be so high up on the listings as it really is quite average. Maybe a lot of the reviews are from visitors rather than locals so they probably haven't tried enough places in Bath. There are a lot of better places to eat in Bath and it is a shame that these are further down on the Tripadvisor list.

I have stayed on and off in Bath since May 2011 for 2-3 nights per week on most weeks, and this place is one of my favourites. As i am away from home so often (abroad mostly) one of my pleasures is to check out new places. I have eaten in over 60 restaurants in Bath and I really like this restaurant (the other great places being Yak Yeti Yak and Menu Gordon Jones). Service is great, the owner a great guy and the food spot on. I always like to eat here.
