Food was really nice and I will go back. They could do some simple things to make it even better. Nobody checked our food was ok, nobody asked did we want any more drinks, we did not get given or offered any bread which would have made the starter so much better. The food we did get was really good so it's a shame. Could have been a 10/10 but was an 8/10

It had been a long since I had visited A Torre. I thought that when I visited on Sunday that the service/food/ambience would remain quite good. I was wrong. It was BETTER!!!! Everything was better than my previous visits. The food was amazing; and the service; well 12 out of 10. Highly recommended!!!!

Went to A Torre restaurant on Valentine's Day with my husband for the first time. The service and food was good, but was disappointed we were unable to order from the main menu. Part of the reason I booked A Torre is to treat my husband to the portuguese fish stew. However, food ordered was tasty.

Fantastic food with friendly, great service. Very cosy restaurant and made to feel very welcome. The ‘Portuguese Paella’ was incredible - loads of delicious, fresh tasting fish in and giant pot. One to go back for!

Took my dad out for dinner on a wet and windy night, food servings were hearty and flavoursome (we all managed 2 courses but 3 would have been a struggle), with a decent wine list.
Food arrived fairly promptly, service was good during the meal (although perhaps a little slow when we were paying).
We like a torre and have been a few times, it’s a great place for family meals and definitely during the winter months when their good portions and rich flavours for the stews and fish dishes come into their own,

A pleasant enough local Portuguese restaurant but be careful what you order; the Francesinha has nothing to recommend it.

This is a great local restaurant. Don’t expect fine dining or table d’hote service...it’s good, simple food done well and served according to the other demands on the limited number if waiting staff...if you accept that and go with the flow there is nowhere better for a friends/family meal out in CP..great food at a good price...

Great family run restaurant. The food is very tasty and hot. The portions are enormous easily enough for 2 people unless you’re starving. Everything reasonably priced. The service is on point. All in all a really good restaurant.

Really enjoyed our visit to A Torre. Lovely staff, lovely welcome, lovely food. What's not to like? We were made most welcome when we went to A Torre to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We will most certainly be going back. Food was very good value. Restaurant seemed to be receiving a lot of repeat regular trade. If locals are going back, in such a competitive market, restaurant must be good. A Torre was delightful.

My husband went for dinner at A Torre on Saturday night. As usual, the Portugese food was really tasty, especially the Prawn Puree, the Octopus and the sizzling Chirozo, not to forget their house wine, which is so quaffable! Highly recommended.

We were recommended to go here by a friend as the food was so good-it was delicious and good value we thought.The service was a bit erratic which is why we gave it 4 instead of 5 stars,but it was Saturday and busy maybe?A little bit Fawlty towers ,but somehow we excused that as we liked it so much.We would go again.
