    Great atmosphere- food never disappoints. Squid, carpaccio and Cherne were all amazing and can’t go wrong with any of their deserts. Overall a great night out.

    The service was impeccable. Our server guided us through the menu and even brought out a tray of sample with different kinds of Portuguese fishes they have. The place has real authentic Portuguese food and the ambiance took me back to my childhood trip to Europe. From the paintings to how it was decorated it was truly a little Lisbon in Toronto. I recommend trying the monk fish and for appetizers the chorizo.

    Chiado’s has been there a long time— I’d always liked it, delicious high-end Portuguese seafood and great chops. A bit old fashioned some said back then— but they also have a cutting edge modern room and bar. But I’ve recently “rediscovered” Chiado and its better than ever. I’ve been 4 times in the last 6 months. The food is exquisitely prepared but not precious, served by formal servers in an elegant but not snobby room full of a diverse range of customers. Expensive but so special right down to the deserts (try the fresh berries sealed in a hand dipped chocolate cage). Its an elegant grown-up night out. The raw marinaded sardines are even better than the cooked option imo— but both are available. Can’t wait to go back! K. A. Troubetzkoy

    Chiado is like a dear reliable Friend that never disappoints. Always delicious, fish and seafood that is always fresh and perfectly prepared. From traditional Portuguese sardines and salt cod to perfectly prepared squid , skate, risottos, duck and other options that are all uniquely flavoured and presented with care in an attractive way. Service impeccable. Polite and comprehensive, professional without being overbearing or intimidating. Wonderful wine by the glass and bottle at a price point that is not going to break you. A perfect meal for lunch or dinner in a warm and comfortable and attractive dining room. Absolutely perfect!

    Always delivers its best: best food, best service, best ambience. We went there for the octopus. It never fails us: so juicy and tender. Love its fish. Lovely crusted and tasty. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable, who has made our dinner enjoyable. Great desserts. Love even just the plating. My friend was amazed by how quiet we were when we were having desserts: no one could take our eyes or spare our mouth away from the desserts. Thank you for a joyful evening.

    I'm really glad we found this restaurant. My partner and I were celebrating my birthday. We requested a quiet table, so we sat near the entrance, in which one people were escorted towards the back of the dining room provided us with an intimate space for dining. The room was nicely decorated with an interesting bookcase behind us. The washrooms are located downstairs near these four tables, which is separated from the rest of the livelier dining area. The food is authentic and it was obvious that the they had repeat customers who they knew by name and warmly greeted them in Portuguese. FOOD - Great all around. You pay what you get, and it's well worth it! Fresh fish flown in from all over the world, displayed and explained before ordering. Grilled Squid (rated 9/10) and Chorizo (7) as appetizers; Monkfish (8.5) and Espada (10) as main courses, we each had a Natas do céu (10!). They also made me a Golden Cadillac (10!) Would highly recommend to dine at this great place!
