We have been coming back to Vasco's for years. Great seating indoors but great outdoors (temperature permitting). I can't recall how many times I've ordered the Hammour with Portugese spices but it's my favourite.

Location, location location! I love Vascos during the cooler weather. Sitting outside is very serene and you can spend quite a few hours there. Not so impressed with the Salad bar, I would stick to the main course. Decent portions as well!

Vasco's had a lot of ''ups&downs'' during these 12 (or maybe 13 or even more) years, but this time it's worse then ever. Is it just a ''normal'' period of decline or is it the end of one nice story?

Something is wrong.....food is not like before, service is not like used to be, atmosphere is just bad (some random people going in & out, passing by your table, talking to some other peple who are not in the restaurant at all, some wrong crowd standing near the fance..etc.etc.) and everything is just far away of something what Vasco's used to be!!! Shame!

Although we are members there I think we'll try to avoid this place in the future!!!

This place USED to be one of my favourite places to wine and dine with friends or more likely potential quimpanion (a female companion).

However the last time I went there, the service was awkward, and the food incredibly bland and badly cooked.

It's a shame as the setting is great, but for a higher-end venue and expense, the food should really be of better quality.
