Poorly trained servers, long wait, food was nothing special. Took the meat plater, porc chop dry overcooked, chicken had good flavour but dry, beef was just a big peice if fat so can't realy tell what it taste like, dry sausage, .Other guest had lobster,...was chewy and overcooked, Don;t be fooled by the desert menu presentation or taste, it is not at all what is presented. Once came time to pay, was told debit machine did not work and we were told we can leave our credit card number and he will bil it later like WTF.....Had to run to ATM for cash. would not return or recomend.More

Agree with all previous reviews: high quality authentic Portuguese cuisine and presentation, excellent food and attentive service. Great variety of fish and seafood, all prepared simply but delicious. The owner suggested we try thr calamari stuffed with chorizo as an appetizer, which was divine, and...for some reason not listed on the menu, so do ask for it.. And very reasonable prices for the quality! Will certainly return. Congratulations to the ownwr, the chef and the serving staff.More

Excellent choice on the meat mix plate. The grilled calamari was perfect. House red wine was good. Nice discovery that will go on our preferred list.

Brought my 85 year old mother to this restaurant (first time for all) to celebrate her 85th birthday . the menu is centered on the preparation of food the Portuguese way & no one in our party of 4 was disappointed. There is a good...selection of foods prepared with piri-piri sauce but for those who do to want to eat spicy there are alternatives . One of the best meals I have had in the Gatineau area & surprisingly reasonably priced for a party of 4 with wine & port included . I recommended it to all of my family for a great meal & a great atmosphere .More

Excellent place!! We enjoyed everything we ordered - seafood, bacalao, chorizo, etc.- everything deliciously cooked and served. Can't wait to go again! The service was great too, and desserts super-yummy (natas, coffee cake).

I was a little surprised to see that the menu at this restaurant offers no vegetarian appetizers or main meals. My friends ordered chicken piri piri which they loved however I just had a salad which although delicious had an enormous amount of salad dressing...so there is was a lot of oil left on my plate. Be sure to order your dressing on the side. Fries were over cooked. Desserts were delicious. Had I not eaten deserts, I would have left hungry. That said, my meat eaters friends loved their fish and chicken meals.More

This place reminds me of my dining experience in Portugal. We ordered a seafood cataplana and peri peri demi chicken. Seafood cataplana very fresh and retained a lot of seafood flavour and the chicken is very tender, juicy and savoury, not overly dry. This place...is on my list when I visit Gatineau again.More

This is our first time eating real Portuguese food. The dining section was small but the staff were very friendly, trying their best to explain the different things on their menu in English to us. We liked the inexpensive house red wine. Everything is so...delicious and portion is generous! Price is very reasonable. You must try the seafood and fish mix (Misto de peixe e marisco). It is out of this world. We will be back.More

Small place close to the shopping malls in Gatineau. Authentic Portuguese food as you can find in Portugal (fish, Piri-Piri, Chorizo...) Prices are more than fair for quality and size of plate are huge. Great service.
