We had an early movie up the street at the mall, so we made an early reservation (5:15). The restaurant was empty at that hour. The gentleman who greeted us was warm and welcoming and gave us a table by the window. As an authentic Portuguese restaurant should, the menu had many seafood choices although I did note some meat entrees as well. The four of us shared the grillled sardines as an appetizer (one large meaty sardine each). Perfect! In our experience, it's rare to find fresh sardines on menus, and these were excellent. I ordered the grilled octopus as my entree as did my husband and friend. Her husband ordered one of the many cod dishes. All of us thought the food was prepared very well. The portions were extremely generous. I took half home to make into a delicious cold octopus salad for the next day's lunch. The entrees came with fresh, steamed vegetables: broccoli, carrots, and potato - all perfectly cooked.

We will make it a point to return -at some sacrifice since we live in Miami Beach and the rush hour traffic on 95/Rt 1 was horrendous. We'll try to plan better next time, but it's well worth the trip even without a movie!

The restaurant ambiance is very nice. The bacalao/cod fish dishes are very good. Other dishes, like the pork with clams, has been infused with other cultures and is not authentic Portuguese at all. I would suggest they take it off the menu.

English is not a strong language. Asked the assistant waitress for water with lemon, never received the lemon. Waiter was not very polite, he just basically threw the menus on the table and attended to the table next to us. The restaurant was not busy. The Cod fish appetizer was excellent as was the Calde Vede. The Cod main dish with the egg and potatoes was mostly onions and 4 olives. The Pudim dessert was excellent. No second visit is planned.

We ordered the grilled Octopus and the grilled Sardines as an appetizer. The Octopus was best I have had in Miami... Garlicy crusted and tender. Very tasty. The Grilled Sardines were very fresh and good. I had a strip steak with fried potatos... Steak was cooked very much to my liking. There was a fried egg on the steak that I gave my wife. There was a side sauce that was garlicy, but reminded me of a thin remoulade... Went well with the steak. My wife had a seafood stew that included clams, mussels, octopus, shrimp, smoked ham and white beans. Tasty... But I prefered my steak. Dessert was meh. The cortado was very good. Service was very good. I will go back.

This is the second time in this location and it was perfect. The food perfect Portuguese style Cod fish prepared with potatoes and eggs complete with your own small can of olive oil and added with fried onions wow. They have many varieties but this is my favorite . The appetizers are awesome specially the Bacalao fried frituras. Wow. Place gets busy but management does a great job of accomidating everyone. Cool seaside decor and great spot on Sunset. Great Portuguese wines and ports. They have a flan dessert that's to die for I mean very creamy and cheese with a shot of Port wow. Awesome sardines and octopus need I say more and great meats braised . This is a restaurant experience not to be missed! Plus our server was perfect and very nice . Enjoy!!

The experience started with the general manager not-very-welcoming comment about the pentacle reservation being made "last minute" and that it could not be honored. I ask: why let the system accept more than your capacity? Why not monitor it? Why not block for close-in? So many technological features at your disposal...
After agreeing to setup a table for our group, the restaurant overall did not act as if we were "welcome" but more like they were forced to accept us. We all felt very rushed by the waiter and the staff in general. They seemed glad when we asked for the check and left. Not coming back --EVER!

Special care is given to presentation and service. The staff is very nice and accommodating.
We all had several appetizers that included seafood and meats. For dinner I are the grilled octopus and I highly recommend it! Pears in red wine for dessert were very tasty.
Valet parking almost in front of the restaurant makes it nice easy as South Miami parking can be a challenge.

From the moment we arrived with another couple and were warmly welcome, to the entire course of the meal, the attention and service were first class without being presumptous.
The menu selections are all good and the preparation and presentation are excellent.
Being familiar with portuguese cuisine we enjoyed our selections while sipping a wine suggested by the manager which was just perfect for the meal. Dessert and coffee made the mark as well. All in all: a very satisfying experience, somewhat uncommon these days.
We are planning to come back soon with more friends.
