Tapas style. Food is good but I thought it was a little pricey. Very trendy place so make reservations or get there early.

Met up with some friends there for a evening of socializing. Tapas were great and the wines we had were also very palatable.

Inside the restaurant is a bit noisy, but there's a outdoors seating area that's perfect (at night specially). The food or great with a lot of different choices and the service is fast!

Portuguese tapas restaurant. Small occupancy with decent sized bar, small lounge area with comfy furniture, and table seating. Superb ambiance for a couple dinner. Wine menu was extensive and waiter made a good recommendation on white wine for our table. Food came to the table fast. Crab crustini was amazing and was one of the best plates. The chicken curry...

We came here for our anniversary and loved it. Intimate setting, prompt service. Wait staff recommended two excellent wines. Mushrooms a la Plancha were wonderful. Salmon crostini was very flavorful. Will definitely return, hopefully soon!

All of the tapas had layers of flavor but my favorite was the sangria and Paella. The atmosphere was romantic and had a nice relaxing vibe.

Only portuguese place I have found in Houston so far. There is a good ambiant and selection of food and wine. One of my favorites places to eat. Its not cheap but not extra expensive either. Meal for 2 including bottle of wine is around 100 bucks.

Mid town location is very nice venue. Outdoor patio, bar and indoor seating. Nice soups, pizza, and entree choices Love the House wines. They serve in 4 sizes of carafes at great prices or order off the list. Owner is very nice too. Yes, he's from Portugal, that's why the food and wine are great! They also have a location... More
