One of the best sangrias I have ever had and I've had a lot :) The food was tasty, unfortunately there is not much for a vegetarian but everything else was amazing

We've been in this place several times to celebrate graduations, my masters degree and just recently my wife's PhD degree. The place is classy and very good authentic Portuguese food, we had delicious vitela, polvo accompanied by very good vinho verde tinto. We would go back anytime. Check out the building that is beautiful as well.

A very busy, bustling place, but they found room for us and gave us great service. For starters had two lovely tasty spring rolls followed by large portions of grilled squid, chicken with almonds and egg fried rice. Also a bottle of Mateus rose and a large water. Then two icecreams in batter, one with chocolate and the other flambéed... More

It is a little bit hard to find - just an entrance at Largo do Toural. A nice atmosphere in the cafe. The mixed seafood grill was wonderful! Unfortunately, the staff does not speak English, but otherwise they are very helpful.

We had a good experience overall. The only thing we didn't like was the heat we felt during the time we were there, the AC was in the other side of the room and it was really really hot where we were seated, my little daughter was sweating a lot :( The breaded octopus with tomato rice was really good,...

It is easy to miss the Oriental because the entrance is just a doorway leading to the second floor. But once inside you find yourself in a gorgeous dining room that reminded me of old European movies. The menu offers a good variety of dishes. But unless you are VERY hungry I advise ordering just one appetizer and one entree... More

You have several rooms to have lunch or dinner with a good service and very good food at a reasonable price. Wide choice of wines too I recommend the 1st floor room with view to the "Largo do Toural".

We visit this restaurant already many years. The first time we ate there, 13 years ago we found it by accident. On the first floor is a buffet restaurant, we never went there, the Oriental is one floor up. The ceiling is lately beautifully restored. The food and service are always excellent.

We were taken there by a Portuguese friend and we loved the place. The lunch buffet has great selection of soups, meats, salads. Don't forget the fruit salad at the end, it was absolutely delicious. The service is friendly and the prices are also very reasonable.
