During pandemic and inflation period, the quality of the food remains high and as good as it was. I have noticed that the price has been gone up. As long as they continue the high quality of the ingredients and the taste, I will still go visit regularly. The bread and olives were on the house before, but you need to pay for them now. I personally do not enjoy the corn bread which is one of the bread on the presentation, but the baguette tastes good. We had baby salad green and mussels as starters and piri pier tiger shrimp linguine /steak as our main courses. The taste of the food are excellent, except for the steak a bit of salty for me.

The rooftop terrace was so quiet it felt as though we weren't dining in a major downtown city. The service was prompt, friendly and made us feel very welcomed. The food itself was absolutely delicious and the servings were more then adequate. A definite must dine when you are in Toronto.

Excellent, delicious fresh fish is a specialty -- order the Portuguese fish stew, it was outstanding. The wine list is long and impressive, and the staff can recommend a perfect match. Service was quick and polite. A wonderful place for a long, lingering dinner with friends, wine, laughter.

The food was delicious -from the salads and soup and carpaccio special appetizer to the fish main courses. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented, the blend of flavours of the Portuguese deep sea Azores fish filet was incredible. We were also very impressed with the dessert platter, all the of the desserts were fantastic and unique, including several gluten free options. The service was second to none. Highly recommend this restaurant.

The lobster soup and seafood risotto is a little bit bland, so I need to add salt by myself. PICA PAU is just so so, not like it.

I returned last night to a, surprisingly, STELLAR meal. BEST GRILLED OCTOPUS I have ever tasted anywhere in the world. All our food...lobster bisque, cataplana, lamb...was outstanding. ONLY the impeccable service and kindness outshined the food. You gotta eat @ Adega!
