Upscale authentic Portuguese food. Always delicious. Always fabulous service. This was my first time eating inside a restaurant during COVID and felt very comfortable. The restaurant is large so that everyone can be properly spaced apart and they take proper precautions. We ate on their patio a month ago and it was lovely. This time it was too cold.

This was the First time we dined out since the pandemic. We chose Piri Piri, because of the great good and warm service. The deck is so spacious so no issue maintaining social distance. Food and service are top notch as usual. My husband and I had such a wonderful time. Highly recommend.

My family and I had an amazing time having dinner at Piri Piri! The patio was beautiful and our server was polite, personable and very knowledgeable!

Dinner was delicious and came out quickly! Their white sangaria was delicious and the taste travelled you back to Portugal!

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.
