I did much research before deciding on Adega for my birthday dinner with my wife. The good reviews and location helped in the decision.
We were very disappointed. The shrimp bisque was salty and had no taste of shrimp. My wife couldn’t eat it due to the saltiness. The Octopus and pork belly app was small in size. Just one tentacle! Taste okay. My wife had the mussels which were not fresh. We had the Cataplana fish stew which had the same broth as the Mussels. The rack of lamb was slightly over cooked for medium rare which is always what we order. Our server was very good and the house wine that he recommended was fairly good. The decor is dated but it may be the”Old world” look that they are trying to put forward.

Overall, we were disappointed bc we could have gone to some other Mediterranean restaurants that I did research on. Sorry that I picked this one.

We returned to Adela for our anniversary. The food is always fresh and delicious. The service was excellent with lots of attention at the right times. We had the sardines to start and both could not resist the cataplana!

We will return!!!

I've been coming to this restaurant for many years and have never had a disappointing meal. This time I took a guest that had never been to Adega and is a vegetarian. She was extremely satisfied. Keep up the great work and dedication Adega team!

We have been going to Adega for several years and have never been disappointed - great service and terrific food - particularly the seafood which can be a challenge for restaurants in a city so far from the coast.

Adega is the ideal restaurant for people who want to chat with their lunch or dinner companions while enjoying excellent food and service! We enjoyed our meal and got caught up on all sorts of family news.
Too many places think that noise equals enjoyment for diners --- not so, unless you really want a disco atmosphere, which we do not want. Adega is our preferred kind of restaurant.

It’s been a few years since dining at this wonderful upscale Portuguese seafood restaurant. Same exceptionally attentive staff, service and of course beautifully prepared and delicious dishes. Great wine list and there are always meat selections offered for the carnivores in the group.

This was our third visit to Adega, and again, everything was exceptional. Truly wonderful food, and fabulous service! We're from Michigan, and don't get to Toronto very often, but have been so delighted with Adega that we plan to dine here every time we're in town.

No ones fault just age of building forces scary steep stairs and claustrophobic washroom.
Don’t let that keep you away from this lovely place!
Waiter was attentive and patient with my aged companion.
Great lunch! Creme Brûlée’s a Little too runny.. but flavourful

We have eaten here twice and probably will not return. The food is good but I find it extremely pricey.
Maybe by Toronto standards it is not expensive but coming from out of town I would say it is overpriced.
I would recommend it only for a very special occasion when you wouldn't mind spending a large sum of money.
