Ambiance was nice. Food was ok but we were expecting some special plates for the price we paid. Service was not attentive to details, i.e., we had to request to fill in our glasses with water many times.

Went for our wedding anniversary dinner. It was the perfect setting. For our mains we had the grouper and monk fish. Both were very good but the monk fish was quite spicy. Couldn’t decide on dessert but they took care of that by serving 1/2 portions of the two I was stuck between. Overall very enjoyable and we will return.

A memorable anniversary celebration! Refined ambiance, attentive and knowledgeable wait-staff, wonderful, freshest seafood! A table-side presentation of available whole fish & filets from which to choose your dinner ~ Whole Sea Bass + Cataplana, traditional Portuguese fish stew. Fabulous food.\ Perfect for special occasion dining as the final ticket can be significant.

I was fortunate to get a table for five to celebrate mother's day. My mother is elderly and we were seated in a back corner that permitted everyone to participate and hear the conversation. The fish is fresh and all was cooked to perfection. I pride myself on my ability to cook salmon, but have to go to school on Chiado. Their salmon was perfectly prepared, as were their sardines, octopus, skate, belt fish, quail and grouper.

We ended up there on a fluke at the last minute. I ‘m so glad we did. Everything was done with care. We were treated like their best customer. The food was perfect. Wine amazing. We were given everything quality Portuguese - bread, wine, olive oil, cheese, and we love fresh fish. I did not mind that it was pricey. It was worth it. They will be seeing me again!

Service was amazing from the moment we stepped in the restaurant till we left; very polite and attentive. My husband had rack of lamb, it was just perfectly done, me and my guest had fish, her was a little salty, mine was a little over cooked but still very good. Very mature environment and relaxing. Price was at the higher end but I didn’t mind for the experience. I will definitely recommend to friends.

First time for the four of us but certainly wont be the last time. The selection and quality of fish was outstanding. Service was friendly and informative especially when it came to the Portuguese wine list. We told our waiter what our wine preferences were and he picked out a couple of wonderful bottles. We are now an experience richer.
Presentation of the food was excellent and the different courses came out perfectly timed.
All in all, we were very happy to leave our money behind.

This was my second time at Chiado and I have to say, this last experience was less impressive then my first. My husband, who prefers meat to fish/seafood, ordered the steak...medium. What arrived was a well done steak that was far from what he expected as far as quality. Both he and my friend's husband ordered the same dessert (meringue based) that was huge and both left their desserts basically the way they arrived. The desserts were tasteless (their words, not mine) and even after witnessing the plates being taken away barely touched, the waiter had nothing to say. I think the next time I am craving seafood, I will venture elsewhere.

An excellent long lunch over conversation with out of town friends. Exquisite food. The four of us ordered 3 appetizers each, well matched with wines that we were offered samples of to help with our preferences. My favourite lobster and shrimp bisque in town, as are the baked goat cheese and eggplant, and the grilled octopus appetizers. Consistent professional and courteous service. Perfect ambience for conversation. Can’t wait to return soon.
