“Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

We went for the 3-course set menu...which I usually don't as they often tend to be without that much charm.
However this time it was nice. We got a green soup for starter, which was very salt (drink a lot of water before jumping in to bed!), the main course was bacalao with small french fries, it tasted nicely. For dessert there was a scope of ice cream. A total of 20 Euros is cheap. We never got any questions for coffee. The waitress was polite and asking if everything was ok several times.
Would like to come back, but would not order the soup again though.

“Embarrassment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

First time visit with a friend. Friendly waiters and reasonably good food. With American Express on the door and presenting the bill in an AX cover..guess what they don't accept AX. The owner get gets very abusive and make us feel extremely uncomfortable. What should have been a nice evening turned out to be a DISASTER! Basically another Amsterdam tourist trap!

“Happened upon by accident...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

After a long day of sight-seeing, I walked past this restaurant and was tempted inside by it's decor and character (see attached photos.) I had no expectations and was pleasantly surprised by the food and service. I had a wonderful and tasty , but simple, meal of some sort of white fish
and the delicious fried potatoes for which the Portuguese are known. When I commented on how delicious the potatoes were, the waiter, who, I believe, was the owner, brought me a second helping ! Will most definitely go back on my next trip to Amsterdam

“Delicious, Cozy and Delightful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

We were so happy to have found De Portugees in Amsterdam. Soon as you step through the door you start to relax. The staff were warm and friendly. We were greeted with smiles and an assortment of olives. The food was homemade and delicious and not overpriced. The Wine and Porto were also top shelf.
The bartender was from Lisbon and had some wonderful stories about his home in Lisbon. We visited there a few years ago and were thrill to relive those memories.
Just a very warm and friendly place with Best homemade food. Can't wait to go back.

“A disaster”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

We were there in april. Ordering fish was an absolute mistake, the sardinhas grilhadas were from a can and were dry and overcooked. They served us within a 20 minute interval between every person. The side salad was disgusting, probably had been in balsamico for hours. The salmón was raw. The owner was completely unfriendly and mob-styled did not apologize for the terrible service and meal. It is anything but real portuguese food, as one of the portuguese waiters recognized. Be careful since the same guy owns the Argentinian restaurant in front of it.
