Delicious Brasilia, Portuguese & Southern Europe influenced home made food with broad opening hours. Very warm staff and owner. With reasonable weather, do check the little terrace on the back.
Together with the group I took, we were very disappointed with the experience. And this was due to the fact we had a very large (and noisy) group to us that spoiled the atmosphere. We also found that the occasional accidents with cutlery or glasses, can pose a risk and somebody might get hurt one day.
The staff worked hard (even if short staffed that night?) and was attentive. However the overall staff or manager should be pro-active to prevent such experiences.
I was looking forward so much for the experience, I hope you can improve, as the concept as a tremendous positive potential.
I'm Portuguese and was very positively surprised that we could eat with the quality, and love, of dishes as prepared in Portugal. The 'open space' kitchen, the friendly staff and female chef (genuinely from Lisboa) made it such a positive experience that we confidently recommend to friends and work colleagues.
We also ate there on a Tuesday, a bad day for fish but still the chef made a delicious fish in the Cataplana (Algarve copper pan). The rare, including Azores, Portuguese cheeses made it a perfect finish !
Excellent service and food. Prices are in line with Amsterdam but service and originality well above the rest.
This restaurant is a classic for vegetarians and stays in shape year after year. We love the relaxed and friendly atmosphere (and the cat!)
We were with a groups of business colleagues. The service was extremely slow (for instance to take the order of the drinks and to check if table needed other items) and 2 employees were in 'another World'. The Zuidas deserves better quality service.
