                                                    The food was OK, but it is a "modern European " place, not Portuguese. The octopus was as a typical octopus in all London nice eating places, nothing to do with how they cook the octopus in Portugal (and not as fresh and tender).

                                                    Great tasty meal, service good but a little lacking we had to ask for reccos, over ordered and food came out waaay to quickly. But it’s a good reliable option, and we enjoyed sitting on the counter looking into the busy kitchen!

                                                    Lovely experience all round. The food is amazing and authentic, service friendly and attentive, really nice atmosphere and I love the bar seating overlooking the open kitchen! I would highly recommend it to anyone.

                                                    Brilliant cute place in the heart of London city. Buzzing on a Thursday night with simple and traditional menu choices as well as plenty of wine to pick from. Great experience from start to finish :)

                                                    Food was good, but whole experience just felt very rushed given allocated time you have for the table. Know that this is standard practice these days, but never have I felt such pressure to order, pay or leave table so acutely with next diners literally standing over you… would therefore recommend it only for a quick, functional dinner. Also didn’t really appreciate being called to confirm my booking that afternoon (during working day) having already confirmed the day before via OpenTable e-mail reminder. At that point, if a restaurant feels they need such reassurance, they should just request credit card details at time of reservation.

                                                    Good Portuguese experience. Well thought out menu. Food good but lacking the piquancy you will find in Portugal.

                                                    Really enjoyed the food. The smokey croquettes were delicious. The sardine sandwich was very good. Portions are a bit small so three plates would be best. Highly recommend.

Cocktails, wine and beer did well too. The stuff is friendly and helpful. Beatles songs went great with the food!

                                                    Excellent food eaten outside in an attractive and quiet city square. The warm pasta del nata with cinnamon ice cream is brilliant

                                                    The portions were really small. Also not sure why certain things came in sets of 3 when they're split between 2 people. Seems like an extra biscuit with cheese would be inconsequential for them. Overall was a good meal.
