Lovely patio which is greatly appreciated during current COVID restrictions. They took proper precautions but didn’t compromise their usually outstanding service. As usual, the food and wine were fabulous. Definitely the place to go for a special night out.

Very friendly, and attentive staff. Nice ambiance in dining room.

Food took a very long time, and in the end, wasn't very good.

Vegetable Risotto was watery and tasteless.

Mashed potatoes were liquidy (like soup). Wish I took a photo to show how gross it looked.

Grilled pineapple was served with grill lines, but was cold in the middle. As if they threw a large piece on a hot grill and took it off right away. Not caramelized in cinnamon or sugar like I've had at other restaurants. They just put a hunk of pineapple on grill and serve it to you. Disappointing.

Seabream wasn't bad, but I've had much better.

Piri Piri sauce was tasty - I wish I ordered a main that incorporated this in hindsight.

Sardine Bruschetta, rack of Lamb with risotto and fish stew were heavenly. Their lamb was done perfectly and the risotto blew me away. The fish stew had so much seafood in there and the fish meat was the most tender than I ever had (I tried fish stew whenever a restaurant offers it). We ended the dinner with more red wine, coffee and cream caramel. I tried a lot of high end restaurants in Toronto but have rarely come across food impressing me like the dishes I had here. I would recommend not to do what I did and ate much bread while waiting for the dishes to come - I would have had more space in my stomach to try more dishes.

Everything was perfect, from the staff to the wine, food & ambience. We were there on the early side, pre-concert, so it wasn’t yet busy or noisy. We love Portuguese cuisine & this restaurant was a new choice for us, one that we’re so very glad we made!

Piri piri is a cosy restaurant with friendly service. They provided us with bread, olive oil and piri piri sauce as a snack to start with. The piri piri sauce is amazing! My partner got the heirloom tomato salad and bone marrow which were delicious. I got the piri piri chicken with fries and salad, while the chicken was very flavourful it was a tad dry. On the otherhand the fries were on the undercooked side. I would give this place another try as it definitely has potential, however, as it is pricey, I would definitely expect an improvement.

Piri Piri is a lovely local space with good food at very reasonable prices. I was with my 75 year old father, and we could hear each other perfectly. The service was good, if a little intrusive.
