First of all it is hard to find this restaurant. It is hidden behind a sport arena on a slope of old bank of Vistula river. The surroundings resemble warehouse or garrgae area - not too pleasant. Service is slow and poorly trained. Food is acceptable but nothing special. Resembles Portuguese cuisine but is far from its best :-(

The food is very good - you should try appetizers and octopus. So in terms of food I can totally recommend it. But every time we're there there are issues with the service - either dirty forks, long waiting time or lack of knowledge on wines, etc. But since it is every time we kind of used to it ;)... More

This time we decided to have lunch with friends celebrating the upcoming Easter. This time the service was a little bit better but we waited for our dishes over half an hour. The best choice was naco na pedra - a piece of beef on a very hot stone with French fries and three sauces. We also tried two cods:... More

We got there on the early side, about 5:30, and there was nobody there. However around 6:00 the restaurant filled up, so if you come later you may want a reservation. They have a nice wine list, and the food was great. I had a steak and my husband had fish. The steak was brought on a hot stone, and... More

At lunchtime the service was slow, although most of the time we were alone in the restaurant. We ordered two lunch menus (including grilled salmon and cod with sour cream) and two portions of clams in tomato sauce. Two starters from the lunch menu (25 zloty) were served pretty quickly and both portions of clams (44 zloty) again after a... More

Restaurant and wine store in one - the store and a few table on the upper floor and regular restaurant on the ground floor. Good, traditional Portuguese food, resonable rates. Service could be better.

If you want to taste the typical portucal meals, you must visit Prtucale restaurant. It is in the centre of Warsaw, near the Warszawianka. The most delicious is tuna on the hot stone and other dishes of fishes. In the same places is a wine shop in which you can buy a lot of portucal wines, which you try in... More

We found this restaurant on the way from WAW airport to Lublin. It has an atmosphere trying to recall Lisbon but the menu gives mainly Polish dishes. What has positively impressed is the quick service and the very good quality/price ratio. It was a good choice specially for the reason of our stop.
