I had a rump steak cooked to perfection. It was probably the best I've ever had! Highly recommend! Awesome atmosphere and very authentic Portuguese decor.

We visited this small and cosy restaurant where we found the food was great and not over expensive. The service was also pleasant. It is always nice to try something different when eating out and we were certainly not disappointed.

It was a Friday evening and this usually cozy buzzing portuguese style restaurant had only three tables occupied . Maybe people knew something which we did not . We had off course come for the famous peri peri chicken only to be told that none was available . Stocks had not been delivered but we could have the prawns which... More

We spend a lot of time in Portugal and one of the reasons that we love to return home is the peri peri chicken at Casa Valdez. Portugal could certainly take a few lessons! Fantastic chips accompany the meals - we also enjoy the espetadas and friendly atmosphere - always a wonderful meal!

Real Portuguese food. Cosy environment and excellent service. The Portuguese steak and the peri peri chicken are superb.

Having been to this restuarant a number of times as we love peri peri chicken and other Portugese dishes, we took some friends with us. The peri peri chicken was on special that evening and all four ordered it but only one, myself, ordered peri peri. The rest had lemon and herb chicken. We had two starters of sardines which... More

Very nice vibe. Lively. Live music on Thursdays. The right place to have a party. And the food is good.

Casa is a great restaurant to visit in winter as the fireplace creates a nice atmosphere. Food is great yet average. Staff friendly and helpful.

As soon as I saw the Portuguese flags, bar counter and big screen TV, I knew we were in trouble. And so we were... This is more of a pub with a Portuguese theme than a restaurant. With food to match. Painfully slow service with mediocre food. Don't expect authentic Portuguese food. This isn't the place for it. Things are... More

We love Portuguese food but were disappointed in our meal. No portuguese flavours in the lemon and herb flavoured chicken-not even salt. It tasted like boiled chicken. Peri peri sauce on the side was very hot. My grilled calamari was very tough. Even the chips had no flavour. Only good thing about our visit was the friendly service.I found the... More
