The food was amazing! We’ve never been before but will definitely be back. It’s in our top 3 restaurants in Norwich. We can’t wait to go back for lunch as dinner was just out of this world; great food, great service, great ambiance

Return visit having been many times previously, albeit not since the start of the pandemic. Felt very 'normal'; staff wearing visors and table sensibly spaced but otherwise the same buzzy, friendly ambience that I love so much. Jorge on hand as always with his ready smile and excellent service. Food first class, tiger prawn bisque starter and sea bass especially memorable. Highly recommend this place.

Lovely place - wonderful food, great service. The music was a bit loud for us oldies but when asked about it they turned it down a little with no fuss at all.

What a great find in Norwich! Lovely simple authentic Portuguese tapas. Slightly different from what you might be used to and all the better for it.

Everything was superb. The staff are all so friendly, helpful and the atmosphere is very relaxed. The food is freshly prepared and cooked and presentation is the best we’ve seen in a long time. Highly recommend this lovely, small restaurant. 10/10 to Jorge and his team. We will definitely be back.

Lovely little restaurant and good service. The place got filled up very quickly, as there are only 9 tables.
The food was okay, one of our starter was the black pork but that was a bit chewy for our liking.
Our lunch comes to £65 for two of us, which I think was a bit pricey.

Had been meaning to visit Jorge's since it opened and wish we hadn't waited so long!
A welcoming greeting from Jorge and we led to our table at just before 7 on a damp Thursday evening. Just one other table occupied but that changed very soon leading to a nice buzz in the room.
We were served olives with bread and then chose the battered green beans with garlic mayo and the pork tenderloin with pickles. Both delicious. We then chose the seafood and fish cataplana for two which was amazing. Accompanied by a sparkling white wine, the meal was then rounded off with the almond tart, a glass of port and coffee.
Overall, delicious food, lovely atmosphere and good customer service. We'll be back!

A great find! Excellent, authentic Portuguese food cooked and served by charming Portuguese people. The "Belota Capita" ham was a fine example of this Portuguese speciality and the Black Pork is simply fantastic. Tiger Prawns, cod fishcakes and some lightly fried vegetables offered a fascinating mixture of flavours. The chorizo, served simply with Portuguese bread was as good as I've ever had.

We skipped dessert but couldn't pass up on coffee with "pastel de nata", the renowned Portuguese custard filled puff pastry, it was delicious. We asked if they made their own but the surprising and rather wonderful response was "no, they are flown in daily from Portugal".

The tapas style lunch we had was good value for money and the restaurant itself is small but charmingly decorated.

Went for iunch, food and service where both excellent.
Food was reasonable priced, wine a bit expensive for lunch time, only three bottles of red to pick from.
All above £30.00 a bottle, the one we had was £49.00 a bottle.
The drinks list we were given only had wine on nothing else.

Excellent restaurant. We took some friends over to show them what Portuguese food tasted like and must admit that the flavours did not disappointed.
Small restaurant, which give an extra level of "home feeling" and was not very noise.
The food is excellent but in my opinion is a bit pricey, which makes this restaurant a treat for special occasions rather than a regular option.

Lovely location and ambience. Super service. Food quality generally good, but portions very small. We all had 3 courses, but left feeling not full. 2 of our party reported having to have a bowl of cereal when they got home. Shame as otherwise faultless.

Small and atmospheric, Jorge’s is a hidden gem.
The host is enthusiastic, and supportive if, like me you don’t know Portugese food, but nothing pushy - he just conveys his love of the food, and it’s infectious.
After this meal I now know I too love this food. Extraordinary depth of flavours, wonderful variety, beautifully cooked and presented and a good range of wines to accompany it all. Fair prices too.
I will return when I visit Norwich again.. as soon as possible...
