5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Ventured up to Chiado's new venue in Pyrmont. Loved the location, parking station within the building at $14 flat rate is a plus too.
Right on darling harbour, the guys made a great move. Food was amazing and the wine list is fantastic, spoilt for choice, recommend the 4 castas which was divine!
Couldnt go past the vongole and suckling pig dish both were standouts for me.

“Makes me want to go to Portugal.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

Quaint restaurant. We loved the food. Excellent service. We enjoyed the small plates. Our Cabbage salad was very salty but it was all rectified. Octopus was delicious as was the vongole. Definitely worth a try! The brother and sister team who run the place are perfect hosts!

“Sydney’s Portuguese community have already discovered!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

Sydney’s Portuguese community have already discovered this upmarket newcomer, tucked away on leafy green Kellett Street. The accents, golden skin and eye-catching buff lads sporting masculine tattoos (a description which extends to the staff as well) only add to the experience. To get into the swing of things, I took a Portuguese Lover ($16). It was a gentle combination of white port, lychee and peppermint liqueurs, lemon juice and soda. Suitably mellowed I venture into Portuguese wines and comfort food with a compelling pot of Açorda de Gambas ($18), a silky bread stew with prawns that’s sure to have me racing back again in cold weather. The excitement of eating something totally new continued into Favas com Chouriço ($16), a vivid green collection of perfectly cooked broad beans dotted with intense homemade choriço, then topped with an oozing soft egg. Mains - like Leitão da Bairrada ($35), a warm terrine of suckling pig, or the even better rounds of Rabo de Boi ($26), stewed oxtail gentled by garden vegetables - are presented fine dining style. Portions factor in dessert, and you should eat dessert! The kitchen, headed by Ricardo Ferreira (ex-Uccello) turns out the second best Portuguese Tart ($5) I’ve had in Sydney! Yep, still Sweet Belem by a nose…

“Yummy Authentic Portugese”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant was recommended by a Portugese friend. I thoroughly enjoyed the all the food we tried, in particular the Acorda. The staff were friendly and helpful in explaining the dishes and providing recommendations. The decor could do with some improvement, as the furnishings are a little too posh. I would definitely come back to try other dishes!
