Chiado is very good, but, well, I just did not "connect". Very traditional, old school, no surprise, straight forward, very well presented food and well served by professional, personable staff. Summerlicious, good choice, $55 Sardines, one of my faves, served with an almost sweet n...sour dressing and pickled cabbage (?) good, but give me butter or olive oil!! Jools had the grilled octopus, nice texture and well cooked. Confit of Duck leg, quite salty, burnt skin, but very meaty. Jools had the Salmon, super size piece, crispy skin, well executed. Chocolate Spice cake, had a long lingering after taste .. ginger? Nice. Jools lemon Tart, very thin, nicely presented however "soggy bottom". Service was attentive and personable. 2 Summerlicious and 2 cocktails inc tax and grat $200... quite a lot for a lunch.More

My wife and I enjoyed the cordial greeting from the host. We shared the clams and sardines. What a preparation ! We could hardly stop just eating the clam sauce with a spoon. Perfect sardines. My wife had the tilefish special. I had the salted...cod on the menu, both perfect. If you want fresh fish, and a taste of Portuguese cooking, this is a place to go. I'll also add great service. Highly recommened.More

The atmosphere of the restaurant was very European, The waiter was a consummate professional. The service and busing of the tables was as smooth as I've seen. My wife and I both enjoyed the Beet and arugula salad. My wife had the Sea Bass which...she rated as excellent. I had the Atlantic Salmon which was the best Salmon I've experienced in over 40 years of fine dining. This restaurant is one that should not be missed! I would rate in my top 5 of all time.More

We came here as a family to celebrate an amazing accomplishment and came away so impressed. The food was incredible - we all had fish entrees including some off the menu and some of the daily specials. The portions were huge and the everything we...ordered was amazing. We did lots of sharing and decided that each dish had it's own special flavour. Although the prices are high, you get very special food for a special occasion.More

We were fortunate to enjoy one of the most memorable dinners I’ve ever had down in the Wine Cellar. Jamie was our server and he absolutely wowed us all. We were about 10 people celebrating a company Christmas dinner. I also need to ensure I...call out the staff in the back – the food was UNBELIEVABLE! Everything we had had us wanting more – from the olive oil and bread to the multiple appetizers (some we ordered twice!) to the mains and the cheese and port and desserts. It was a truly amazing experience and I just wanted to again recognize the fantastic work Jamie did, his attention to detail and recommendations and service were outstanding, as was the food, drink and overall experience. Thank you and can’t wait to come back!More

Our experience here was quite good, but some items have room for improvement. I wouldn’t get a cocktail here again, probably best to order wine. My partner got an off menu special, which was somewhat bland. My dish (regular menu item) was delicious and beautiful....The restaurant is small and cozy.More

Refined Portuguese cuisine in an elegant setting. Professional and attentive service, an extensive wine list and a menu that offers primarily but exceptional seafood contributed to a lovely evening.

This is one of the best meals I have had in Toronto. As a lover of good food, I have been to hundreds of restaurants in Toronto and Chiados is my favourite! The service is always top notch and the meal is consistently delicious. I...have tried many items on the menu and each and every one has been delicious. One of the best rack of lambs in Toronto. Cataplana is my favourite dish. The flavours are intense and complex. So delicious. Love this restaurant!!More

Dining room is tastefully decorated and also a good number of “patio” tables. Service is excellent and attentive. We opted for the fish flown in from Portugal! We shared the Carpacio of Grouper and it was absolutely delicious! Then we picked 2 different fish fresh...from the Mediterranean and it was really well prepared tender and moist! Excellent dining experience!More

That schedule is uncomfortably tight, especially given Toronto traffic and the challenge of finding parking near the theatre.
