Excellent! One of the best fish restaurants in Toronto. Grilled squid was done perfectly, whole fish outstanding. Grilled sardines with pineapple also 10/10. Service friendly, professional, zero attitude and very knowledgeable about European soccer. So what’s not to like? Will definitely return!

A hidden charm for lovely seafood in downtown Toronto. Consistency and excellent service after 15 years. Lots of options for different groups - quiet booths, tables for 2 up to 12 in main dining plus private rooms - basement wine cellars and upstairs large function room with patios and separate bar area. Winelist is mainly Portguese wine with a small number of US wine at reasonable prices. The seafood dishes are superbly prepared.

Food was very good, appetizer( grilled sardines) was much smaller than a previous visit. The service was fine, felt a little rushed. Enjoyed the cataplana fish stew, fish and seafood very well cooked, could have used a little spicier broth. Dessert , cheese plate and white chocolate creme, delicious. Overall a good dinning experience.

Tucked away in the middle of Elm Street between Yonge and Bay, this spacious restaurant afforded an intimate setting for a group lunch during a weekday. We were greeted by a server as we walked in and shown to our table after confirming the reservation. Due to the provincial COVID-19 regulations, all guests must show proof of vaccination and a piece of ID to dine in. The restaurant has had to make some modifications to their service offerings but when asked, we were provided us with some bread served with olive oil and olives on the side. I had the prix fixe lunch menu that included a choice of soup or salad, grilled squid, pan roasted chicken breast, or shrimp linguine for the entrée, and coffee and biscotti for dessert. All of the dishes were quite flavourful, especially the grilled squid. Unfortunately, my squid was a little cold and the dish had a bit too much olive oil in it. However, this did not affect the overall experience though. The service was excellent with the staff being very attentive. They had come over to refill our glasses several times and took care our table from start to finish. The service never felt overbearing and it felt like they were making every effort to not disturb the group dynamic. It may be a little pricey for lunch in the area but it's also hard to find a quiet place in the heart of Toronto with quality food and service. Others in my group ordered the risotto and pasta dishes and I can't wait to return to try them.

Super attentive service without being overbearing. Lots of helpful suggestions for wine. Wine list has extensive selection of Portugese reds/whites-- and prices are very reasonable. Rack of lamb and skate wing specials were excellent choices, lamb cooked perfectly medium rare and the skate wing was among the best preparations I'd ever had-- and the portions were quite substantial. Sardine appetizer was top notch. Will happily return on our next visit.

Had a wonderful anniversary dinner here. The best cooked and tasting sea food I’ve ever had, my wife and I were extremely impressed.

Prices are modest but slightly pricier than your regular restaurant but very worth it!

We dined at this restaurant in Friday evening. The service here was fantastic, we got a lovely table. We ordered the beef croquettes which was tasty and crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. Lovely starter.

For the mains we had seafood risotto which was excellent. The fish and seafood were perfectly cooked and risotto creamy and juicy. The Piri piri chicken was perfectly cooked, flavourful and juicy.

The service was excellent, attentive and didn’t feel rushed.

I would 100% recommend this place. They also have a fixed price menu which looks like a good value.
