After the Pointe a callieres Museum, we went at POrto Mar for dinner. Portuguese inpiration. Chiken was superb; some had fish and they enjoyed. Service should be more attentive. Price list is OK.

Thank you for your review. We apologize for the state of the restrooms. Unfortunately the restrooms are not the responsibility of the restaurant but rather the building owner but will definitely pass your feedback along. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again.
