Well iv'e been here several time's now with daughter & different friends, & tried the traditional grilled sardines, mozambique prawns, squid, cuttle fish, bacalhau & a small smidgen of my daughter lily's piri piri chicken, now that was hotter than Arsenal's german summer signing ozil. Oh and a few cheeky naughty large honey jd's. The food has always been sublime, otherwise i would not keep going back, the ambience of the place is second to none, good looking bar staff & waitress. Nuno the owner is a great chef, mind you he had a great mentor in signore mirco from the casa nostra. [now sadly closed] so hence great food. So try the menu, like i did, don't go to a restaurant once then carp on about how expensive things are, you look at the menu first see what grabs your taste buds & enjoy. You will here. If not then your nearest mucky d's is found in reading. obrigado DOZ x

Now had two meals here. Fantastically good seafood. As a regular visitor to the Western Algarve (where food tends to be excellent), the Square's grilled squid and their Steak Portuguese were up there with the best. Very good Portuguese wine too. Service attentive.

good food, great atmosphere, friendly attentive staff, just what Henley on Thames needed, somewhere you can go and spend the whole evening and enjoy great food and drinks in a nice atmosphere.

We went to The Square for dinner with our friends, one of whom is Portuguese.

The menu has a good selection of traditional meat and fish dishes.

Lovely olives and light bread to mull over the menu.

Flaming chuorico was a sight to behold, better for those with a big appetite! Tasty Mozambique tiger prawns and the traditional Caldo Verde soup was delicious.

We shared the Cataplana which was great. Our friends had the pork dish and the steak, equally as good.

The wine list had a great selection of Portuguese wines and the deserts were sublime, particularly the coconut cake.

The atmosphere was good, with helpful friendly staff.

There is also a good sized bar for pre or after dinner drinks or for those not wanting a formal sit down meal.

Would definitely return!

Great to have a Portuguese restaurant outside London. Just opened a couple of months, and serving very good Portuguese food. The clams dish and the pork and clams in particular were excellent. The bacalhau balls were also good, but dear at £2 each. The prices in general are a bit high, and it would be nice to have had bread for the sauces, but overall we enjoyed this taste of Portugal very much.
