    This is one of the better restaurants I've been to in Dubai. We went on a Friday and availed ourselves of the 'All you can eat' offer with free-flowing grape. When you first walk in the decor can be a bit of a let down-but don't let that put you off! It's slightly out of the way but very well worth the trek. Everything we ordered was delicious and beautifully presented. Service was excellent and would make brilliant suggestions if you weren't sure what to order. They even bake their own bread in a brick oven.
    Excellent, highly recommended.

    Dinner on 6.8. Open kitchen restaurant with decent service. Got a table by the window beyond which was the hotel swimming pool. Served a bowl of olives and another with pickled carrots as also warm bread and butter. Got help from my Moldovian waitress who directed me to typical portuguese dises. So it was the clams Bolhao style in olive oil, lemon garlic and lots of coriander. The coriander leaves tasted apt for this dish. The clams were small though plentiful and was enough for a starter. Could even be shared by 2. The codfish a' Lagareiro style erved with lot of edible leaves with the slightly salted fish fillet placed over a bed of baked baby potatoes and topped by onions. Satisfying.
    The bill:
    Clams Bolhao AED 45
    Codfish a' Lagareiro AED 109
    Perier small bottle AED 22

    Loved every bite! we were 4 people, we ordered the shrimps, the clams and the fried mackerel with tomato rice as starters, and the peri lamb and fish wrapped with shrimp as the main courses. We shared all the food and there was more than enough. As for desert we ordered 2 portions of the natas. The food was unbelievable! we even got a 20% percent discount on the final bill becuase we booked through RoundMenu. Regardless the prices were very reasonable. Our waitress Mercy was absolutely lovely and knew everything about the menu.

    Very nice restaurant, it was great to know that as a Portuguese I can find there home food away from home. The decor inside is nice, but I found it too much the all-night long depressing Fado playing,

    Altough I just had seafood the fish menu seemed better than the meat one.
    The Ameijoas á Bulhão Pato were good, the sauce was fantastic!
    If you are a spicy lover you might enjoy a lot the cheese platter.

    Prize-Quality very good, as we paid 200 for a cheese platter, home made bread, clams starter, shrimps starter and a seafood stew for 2. The other 200 dhs for the wine, that I suppose like any other restautant in Dubai is very expensive.

    Defenitely coming back!
