Honestly, I was very surprised how good this little gem was, we ordered the giant seafood platter for 2, but easily enough for 4 and it was delicious, service was great, no waiting and very friendly. We are planning on going back !!!

We decided to give Conquistador a try last Saturday night. After waiting approx. 10 min, the waitress brought us a menu and a small loaf of ordinary white bread. (We had been hoping for some nice Portuguese bread). When she returned, she asked what we wanted but no offer of a cocktail before dinner. We decided to try the Grilled... More

We went to Conquistador for my Mother In Laws 80th birthday.....well, most at our table of 13 found it satisfactory as far as I know and that's why I gave 3 stars.......for me, I would only give 2. First of all, my meal wasn't anything special. I got fish fillet with breaded shrimp, seafood rice and salad. The fish I... More

Me and my husband went here for dinner. I ordered halibut and he ordered cod. The halibut and cod were so overcooked that the fish was tough, and we both could not eat it. Also, with your meal you get one boiled potato cut into 2 (yes boiled), and a scoop of frozen (yes frozen) pei mixed vegetables (carrots &... More

Again, another good meal. Good, not great, but you get what you pay for. A cod dinner is only $21. It comes with boiled potatoes, vegetables (sadly, frozen carrots, green and yellow beans) ample portion but just meh - it's boiled, frozen veg nothing fancy, boiled potatoes but the fish.... so fresh. We keep returning to Conquistador for the fresh... More

Took advantage of a Wag Jag offer. The dining room was comfortable and warmly decorated. For starters we chose Portuguese Rissoes (cod and shrimp) which were quite tasty. Main courses were the grilled halibut and grilled salmon both done just right, neither under or overcooked. This was followed by dessert - custard tarts. Our server Eileen was warm, welcoming and...

When you feel like enjoying some great Portuguese cuisine without the work take a trip to Upper Wellington and become part of the family for a couple hours and enjoy some great food. Make a reservation if you want to eat the same day or enjoy some take out but order ahead of time. Good places are always busy and... More

Went on Mother's Day 2016, 6 of us all together. The place was very busy without enough staff so the service lacked. Menus were forgotten at first but once brought our drink and food orders were taken in a timely manner. After that everything fell apart service wise. We were never asked if we would like another drink, more water... More

I am very sorry to hear about your experience this past mothers day. We try our best, and were dealing with a short staff, and reservations changing amount of guests as well as coming late or early affects how many people we were serving at once. We never try to make the food spicy unless requested. I do apologize again,... More

My wife had been pining for seafood for a while and we decided to make a visit to Conquistador. What a pleasant experience, I commented to my Mrs that it was the best serving of calamari I'd ever had. For dinner we ate the Seafood Platter #1 and again what a nice change from other restaurants in that the freshness... More

We were at this restaurant a few times now. The food is unbelievable. If you have not tried authentic Portuguese food, then this is the place to go to. Reasonably priced and a nice atmosphere.
