One of our favourite restaurants. Food is always good, and service is low key and helpful.

This is an excellent neighborhood restaurant . The food is amazing - we had chicken, pork chops and lamb . The chicoutterie board was fantastic.
Our waiter - Abir was attentive, friendly and made good recommendations . The owner also checked in on us and was very hospitable .

The meal was delicious and lots of tasty food. We couldn't have an appetizer or dessert because we were so full ! Our waiters suggested a very good red wine. Too bad that the noise level was very disturbing !!!

This was my first time at Piri Piri and I would definitely go back! I loved the decor- a mix of warm and cool tons, modern and lots of geometric shapes, but not sterile… very chic. Food was delicious! All the seafood tasted very fresh and was cooked well, not tough at all. A nice change from the Italian, Mexican, and Japanese I usually go for. Our server was excellent! Unfortunately, I don’t remember his name but he was attentive, though never pushy. Will definitely be back!

The best creme caramel I have had and that includes having it in Portugal. The entire meal was delicious and very fair price as well. We sat outside and had fabulous service by Raphael and were invited to take our time and enjoy which we did! This place is a wonderful!

My husband and I went on a date night to Piri Piri and the restaurant did not disappoint! Fantastic food and service, the staff was super friendly! If you are a seafood fan, definitely get the fried calamari and the salmon (it’s seasoned to perfection). Oh yes, and I can’t forget to mention the house piri piri sauce…it was the perfect way to start the meal with the fresh bread! My husband I will definitely be back for another dinner at Piri Piri.

This is a real gem in the Junction Triagle. The renovations are beutiful, the food is really authentic Portuguese, and the staff is astounding. There is a level of professionalism with the staff you don't usually see outside of Europe.

We had a family get together of 7 and the menu at the restaurant offers choices for all - vegetarian, fish & seafood of course and chicken, pizza and pasta.
The grill fish was simply divine and no one had the chicken PiRi piri but it looked delicious as well. The crème caramel was delectable as well. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat if you are looking for traditional, impeccable food. The service was also attentive, considered it was a busy Saturday night.

Piri Piri is one of my favourite restaurants in the GTA. I’ve recommended it to many of my friends and we haven’t been disappointed. Excellent in all areas of food service. No problems with parking either. Congrats for reinforcing, diligently, the vaccine mandate!

The cook on the food was excellent overall. We had grilled sardines and a charcuterie board for appetizers. Entres were the piri piri burger, piri p[iri chicken, grilled squid, grilled octopus and a rack of lamb on mushroom risotto. They were all very good, the stand outs being the lamb, octopus, the sardines and the chicken. The charcuterie board was the most disappointing item as it was a bit skimpy. The sardines had 5 on the plate and was nicely grilled and very tasty. There were 5 lamb chops and the octopus was also very generous, they were both very tender, the portions were what we had when we were in Portugal. The piri piri chicken was also very good, (although it's not really an authentic Portuguese dish, as we found out when we were there, there's no such thing.) Our service was slow though, our waiter disappeared at the end, we realize they had an event inside but it was still too slow. The owner came out to apologize and gave us complimentary port. But overall we were impressed and will eat there again.

My experience at Piri Piri NEVER disappoints me. The service is always outstanding. The drinks are always on point. The food is always delicious. It has quickly become one of my favourite restaurants in the Junction because everything is ALWAYS above par. Thank you to all staff for making my time here so memorable!
