“A disappointment!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2013

Yes, the portions are huge. And for the amount of food you get, the prices are low. But the service was terrible and the food did not in any way resemble real Portuguese food, which is simple but usually of excellent quality. The decor is tacky. We were placed close to two tables with large groups and could not talk because of the noise. The waiter didn't give a damn, mixed up our orders, didn't bother to fill our wine glasses. The meat was burnt. The fish and gambas were overcooked. A very disappointing meal!

“Best steak and seafood in France!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2013

I have had some bad dining experiences in France. maybe it's because as an American, I perfer my seafood cooked...I did not have that kind of experience at Pedra Alta. The seafood is excellant, but the steaks are some of the best i have had ANYWHERE! Now I love my steaks, so I consider myself an expert! The meat is tender, well prepared, cooked the way you request, quickly, and most of all..it is vvery resaonably priced.

Seem to good to be true, well, with most meals, a salad, vegetable and potatoe are included. arrive hungrey, because they will give you more than most people can consume. Also, if you like something to compliment your meal, try theeir homemade Sangria wine. The wait staff are friendly, speak very good English, are very responsive to your needs and over all this is one of the best diining experiences I have had in Europe.

“a great place for seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2012

I've visited this restaurant 3 times. The seafood is fresh and delicious. The service is efficient. The portions are huge. You even get a doggy bag if you want. The interior is nice but somewhat noisy. You cann't make reservation so don't come late if you don't want to queue at the entrance.
