Visited Assinatura based mainly on the reviews on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed. The restaurant is not that easy to find but definitely worth the effort, and once inside the decor is classy and welcoming. All of the staff spoke excellent English and were welcoming and friendly to us. Disagree with the previous reviewers who said that the menus were difficult to understand, we found that the very opposite was true and the waiter explained the various options fully. We went for the 7 course tasting menu which morphed into a 9 course menu with the addition of a free amuse bouche and a little cheese dish at the end of the meal. The food was DELICIOUS from start to finish, with a real emphasis on Portuguese produce. We were served oysters, cod, swordfish, partridge, venison, suckling pig and a lovely trio of desserts and everything was immaculately cooked and presented.
Not cheap and cheerful but most definitely a restaurant which should not be missed. Won't be surprised to hear it's beem awarded a Michelin star in the near future - it's that good.
