A word from Portuscalle
Enjoy fine Portuguese cuisine at Portuscalle. The menu is a true representation of Iberian country. On the other side of the dividing wall, guests can sit at the bar lounge to have a cocktail and tasty petiscos–Portuguese appetizers that are lighter than their Spanish counterparts thanks to natural ingredients like olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, coriander and parsley.

Diner Reviews
  • "As always, inviting ambiance, efficient and curious staff, accommodating host, excellent meal. Always feel welcome and they always make you feel as they are happy to see you. Can't wait to go back."

  • "Portus Calle used to be a great portuguese tapas option, vibrant, good food, energetic atmosphere but noise level still enabling conversations. Now the food quality has gone down, the noise level is high and even the crowd seem to have changed. Chef Helena has opened a higher end restaurant on McGill called simply "Helena" which is a much better option on all aspects. Just ordering Serano cold cuts at both makes you see the difference."

  • "We were two mid-age couples for an evening of good food and wine with good friends. The restaurant came with recommendation from our married kids who love it. They told us to order some tapas to start, like the scallops with crispy prosciutto and blood sausage over pineapple. We couldn't stop there so we added more tapas plates and all were delicious! Our main dishes were just as special. The steak with an egg on top was prepared to perfection, as was the prawns and the boulabase. The Portugese wine list is priced fairly and the one chosen for us by the sommelier and our fabulous server was perfect. We went through two bottles. I can't say a negative word about our experience. We go to fine restaurants often and this one is a keeper!"

  • "fish, octopus and calamari outstanding and always consistently cooked to perfection. vegetables on main course are not an afterthougth; different every night and imaginative."

  • "I loved everything except the octopus who was too cooked, almost burned. The rest was outstanding"

  • "This restaurant was recommended by one of my employees, who by the way is portuguese. Thus the reason I went to him in the first place. He was right on the nose! The food was outstanding. Tapas for entrees and fish for the main course. What a delight! Fresh and plentiful! I highly recommend Portus Calle to all food lovers. Me and my wife will be returning very soon."

  • "While we have been to Helena's numerous times, it was our first time at Portus Calle, her first restaurant We did not get the same attention as at Helena's, we could hardly hear the waiter as it was very noisy due to open space. They did not explain the menu nor food choices . We ordered Bombay gin and tonic, but we were not served Bombay. When it came to choosing the wine, we asked for sommelier but waiter said he could help us. We also wanted a bottle of Moet Chandon which was on wine list but they told us they did not have any and suggested a more expensive alternative. Food was very good."

  • "This is one of my 2 favorite Portuguese restaurants in the city, at the same level as Ferreira Café. Their grilled octopus appetizer is to die for! We were happy with everything we ordered. A tad pricey, but you get what you pay for."

  • "Went with group of five all with different tastes. Waiter suggested they send over a selection of tapas and the a fish to share. It was perfect! We didn't have to think about ordering, each service was a surprise and we were stuffed before the fish arrived! Will go back"

  • "Great dining experience that always impresses my clients and friends... Too many favorite dishes to mention here... Best place to take my Italian wife... Each meal has a unique flavor that makes you think about all the nuances used in creating the dish or appetizer... Service is always great with a very personal touch.. More than one of my special clients i have brought there have commented on the ambiance, and most have returned on their own with other clients or their own spouses... Great attention to detail without being too obvious... Private wine list is great consisting of Portuguese labels..."

  • "Unfortunately we had been delayed in traffic on our way to dinner & had an event booked to go to after. We mentioned this to the waitress who made sure our food was all brought out very speedy. Food was excellent - great service - presentation perfect. Wonderful night out - highly recommended!! But next time I will just make sure we have plenty of time to really enjoy fully!!! Thank you"
