This is a great restaurant serving excellent fish dishes. In fact so good we went twice within the one week. Excellent fish, friendly service and lots of choice on the menu. Only possible complaint is that the portions really are on the excessive side. Having been given a complimentary "amuse bouche", then garlic bread and then a starter, we really... More

We enjoyed Lareira Portuguesa last year, so this year we went back, and took a friend with us. It was good, but not quite up to last year. I don't think that's just me remembering with rose-tinted spectacles. I repeated my fish stew order of last year - the dish (again two servings) was still ample and tasty. But this... More

We always have at least one visit to Lareire Portuguesa, there is nothing flash of fine dining about this restaurant, just good food and lots of it! The place s always filled with locals and to me that's a good sign. there is a constant hum from all of the families that gives the restaurant a warm friendly feel.

You will see this three course menu offered outside the restaurant but will not be offered it inside unless you ask. However it contains 5 starters, 5 main courses and 5 deserts. Need I say more?

We generally try a variety of restaurants and there lots nearby but ate here 3 times in our week there. Fish every time and standard consistently excellent. Portions generous - you don't need a starter! (and, surprisingly, they made no attempt to sell us one!). Not the cheapest place around but good value. Ask about the catch of the day.... More

We had 2 meals at this restaurant, both fish meals, although they do meat dishes as well. The fish dishes were exceptional. My wife and I shared a fish platter which had an abundance of different fish and was cooked to perfection. Would recomend this place. 100% for service and food.

As someone else said, don't go for a starter, as the servings are enormous. Though having said that I did have the seafood soup, which was delicious. Followed this with bacalhau, which they do perfectly. Not pretentious and the staff are very friendly. Added to which they have plenty of Portuguese customers, which is always a good sign.
