Dined at Costa Do Sol Canterbury Road Petersham for a Birthday of someone who had just returned from Portugal. Un-presuming, this small and comfortable restaurant provides huge, beautifully cooked servings across a range of seafood and meats with salad. The platters for 2, more than adequate for 3. We had a seafood platter with mouthwatering large prawns, squid, octopus mussels and baby clams; - also lamb, rice potatoes and salad - all fresh and tender. Service was welcoming and the bill very reasonable. Birthday boy wowed by the authenticity. Definitely worth a visit.

My wife & I had dinner there comprised of a shared octopus entree and two giant sized chicken & beef skewers.The skewers were hung vertically on a hot metal frame with melted butter running down them. A very fresh salad and bottle of red Portugese wine had us feeling very well wined & dined. Victor,the boss, was very friendly & helped with our selections. We will be back.

Strolled down to Petersham for a Portuguese nosh-up. Took a lovely bottle o cellar door Barossa Shiraz Mataro. Foolishly, we had not booked but a table for 2 was vacated just as we arrived. Our waiter was very welcoming and prepared said table for us within minutes. Skipped the starter and dove into a char grilled seafood platter for two accompanied by Portuguese salad and rice. Taken back to my childhood and charcoal bbqs of cockles on the beach. Blackened octopus was a hit with Mr S.
Please eat here, it is wonderful.

Cozy small restaurant that offers excellent value for money. Meals are generous and service is very good. Couples can share a skewer and have a lovely meal for under $30! We go back regularly and they show even better service in appreciation. The best in Petersham!
