Came on a Saturday night and nearly all patrons spoke Portuguese. You know it's authentic when the expats go there! The maitre d' greeted us in Portuguese and didn't speak English, but the waitress spoke English perfectly and we had no problems ordering. Typical Portuguese decor and menu. Started with the linguica assada, which was flambeed tableside, then I had... More

Myself and my portugees partner dined there last night. The food was authentic, well cooked, and served by attentive and smiley staff. Could not fault the meal. Would recommend trying this restaurant. Try the dourada and the carne de porco alentejana. Thanks to the polite portugees waitress that served us. Cheers/ Obrigada

I have been many times in Portugal, and this restauranr serves real authentic food and flavours from Portugal! I had the traditional bacalhou, which was very good, and my partner, the lamb in the oven, which was clearly prepared how it should, a long time, but slowely. Nice experience!

Looks good from outside, authentic, good location. Menu promises a lot, but some of the English translation is not accurate. I had the salt cod with scrambled eggs, menu said it came with curly fries and vegetables, it did not, when I spoke to the waitress it became obvious that she could not read English and she shrugged her shoulders...

We chose this restaurant without prior research, close to Centraal Station, as we had a couple of hours free before travelling back to the UK. It's set amid numerous run-of-the mill places to eat in the Old Town, and we were attracted to it because of its different nationality menu. The decor inside is nice but a little jaded, and... More

The food was very good starters went down well for main course I had salmon which was very... More

Small and charming and offering veggie options. I had the veggie lasagna suggested by the personable waitress and found it a good choice. My friend chose another veggie option and was equally delighted. So, veggie-lover or carnivore, this is a solid choice in A'dam.

Great place in the heart of Amsterdam. Good staff and the food was very good too. It was full of Portuguese people which clearly is a good sign.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
