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! I look forward to my next visit.

Pretty disappointed honestly. We waited an hour and ten minutes for our food to arrive. I ordered the codfish and my girlfriend ordered the steak. The fish was decent, and the steak was average. Ordering water took 15 minutes, the food took over an hour to come after ordering, our food did not come with a proper knife - steak and fish we ended up eating with a butter knife - we were two people seated beside a large table having a birthday party in a corner where we could not hear each other speaking. Average service, average food at upscale pricing, however I will say the cocktails are pretty good. I personally won’t go back, but to each their own. I had higher hopes.

This was our first time visiting Piri Piri and it was amazing! It was a lovely evening and we sat outside on the patio. Abieri was our server and was super attentive. We ordered the shrimp gambas, grilled salmon and Piri Piri chicken, all of which were flavourful and delicious. The orange blossom rice pudding was fantastic as well. Great food, charming atmosphere and reasonable prices! A fabulous Friday evening. Will definitely go again!
