Piri Piri Grill first opened its doors in 1998. Since then, restauranteur Agnelo Da-Costa has been serving both quality interpretations of classic Mediterranean dishes and daring new ventures into the uncharted territories of food.

The interior and atmosphere of Piri Piri Grill reflects the hip sensibilities of the modernizing neighborhood while also paying tribute to the culinary history of the Mediterranean.

I tried the grilled squid and the octopus and both were exquisite ! Will definitely come back and try their char-grilled bitoque.

I visited Piri Piri prior to the renovations, and then once they remodeled. Everything about my evening was fantastic. The food, ambience, and decor made it feel like an upscale restaurant. I can't wait to go back.

Hadn’t been in a while and was very impressed with the decor. Prices have gone up a bit but the menu has a great selection of traditional Portuguese dishes. Great service!

Lovely outdoor patio. Service was sketchy at the start - few very harried servers but as the evening wore on the servers were more attentive and spent more time chatting with us. The owner is a sweatheart!

The service was outstanding by both the wait staff and management. Felt like a welcome guest rather than just a patron. Food was very good - chicken breast a bit dry, dorado excellently prepared. Would come back for sure.

Excellent meal in every detail, friendly accommodating staff, and the owner drops by to check in. I had an heirloom tomato salad that was perfect: the tomatoes were so flavorful it was a rare experience, so different from even the average farmer's market tomato at home. Main dish was simple whole dorada--dorada AKA daurade/dorade. Mild but flavorful, not dry, crispy skin. A friend had octopus that had that great texture of skillfully cooked octopus. I would have expected more of a char, but whatever. Wine list with good affordable wines. Special desserts too: one was a fluffy meringue with caramel that might sound unappetizing but was surprising: a huge plate of what looks like a whipped cream cake comes out, and biting into it, turns out to be among the lightest most meltable substances on earth. Tasty too. A tartufo with chocolate exterior and raspberry interior was also delicious. Highly recommended; somewhat farther out than we expected; worth the detour.
