We had dinner for 4. Food was well prepared with large portions. The soups and salads were large portions and very nice. They make their own dipping sauces for breads too. Will be back!

We ordered the grilled calamari and chouriço sausage as appetizers. Both were very good. The rack of lamb done medium rare was excellent. Another at our table had the rack of lamb medium and it was a bit tough. There was a good wine for a reasonable price on the menu but they had only two bottles of different vintages... More

Cozy, clean well presented restaurant. Fado, the background music, excellent! Pleasant service. The choice was "caldo verde", excellent, "pasteis de bacalhau", not the true Portuguese cod cake, but good. Followed by the "bitoque", excellent. Good size portions! Warm bread and butter on arrival, nice touch. Tried the chef's home made sauces, excellent.

This place makes great food we all walked out of there stuffed. The portions are really big and we brought a bunch of food home that was left over. I would recommend Chefe Daniel's restaurant.

Great authentic home-style Portuguese food, prepared the Chef Daniel himself. A good change from the usual chain restaurants in the city of Surrey outside of Vancouver. A few Italian-inspired dishes since the Chef worked for various Italian places in the past. Often rare to see Portuguese restaurants here, specially out in the suburb, but this one is an excellent change... More

We decided to come Saturday evening (June 11th) on the spot. I've never heard about the Chefe Daniel's Restaurant but I've heard many time how great the Portuguese cuisine is, and we weren't disappointed at all. The service was perfect, the choice and price are perfect as well. We started with an appetizer, a "Pastéis de Bacalhau", then we choose... More

Only average. Cold food...cold restaurant. Did not live up to the yelp and trip advisor ratings...maybe self imposed?! Will not be back.

Visited on a cold and wet Sunday evening in January and found very few other diners, which was a shame because our experience was excellent. The space is welcoming and with a little more buzz from other diners it could be very good. The tables are not crammed in and there are two main eating areas. The staff are welcoming... More

The food here is fresh, and the potatoes and vegetables that accompanied my husband's meal were very good. But his fish and my pasta were full of chunks of raw garlic. The grilled calamari appetizer was good, but too much sauce and again, too much garlic. Too bad as we would have loved a new "go to" spot here in... More
