I had the sardine appetizer to go, and enjoyed the calm and comfortable ambience while I waited. The staff were very helpful and professional. The sardines were simply fantastic. Large and grilled to perfection with cooked red peppers and lovely homemade cornbread as a side, garnished with lots of olives. The sardines truly reminded me of those in Lisbon.

This was our second visit to Adega. As an appetizer we ordered grilled squid and it was absolutely delicious. As well we had Mediterranean octopus and Saffron seafood risotto. Both dishes were excellent. Amazing service, great atmosphere. great food and nice choice of wines. Highly recommended.

I was excited to try this restaurant. After reading good and bad reviews I understand what people are talking about. Upon arriving for lunch we were greeted warmly. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. But I could see it would be a very different experience if my guest wasn't super good looking if you know what I mean........ More

We made reservations 2 and a half weeks earlier for this place because we wanted to experience winterlicious for the first time, and we liked the reviews. We made an early reservation, at 5:30 because we were seeing an afternoon show nearby. We got there right on time and entered a mostly empty restaurant. There were only 2 other tables... More

The menu prices and food quality at this restaurant were amazing and top-notch. Our server, however, did not match that same quality. He was rude to the other wait staff, literally SNATCHING the receipts (for our credit card transactions) out of one wait staff member's hands (even though that staff member simply just wanted to clear the table), said something...

An excellent Portuguese restaurant that is one of the best restaurants in the city. Pros: - Wonderful food. The grilled squid was the best I have had anywhere in the world, including some fine seafood restaurants in Spain and Italy. My partner's saffron seafood risotto likewise was exceptional. We started with grilled octopus and pork belly bacon that tipped us... More

I have been to loads of restaurants in Toronto, and Adega is truly the best when all things that make a good restaurant are considered. Food is consistently delicious - I would strongly recommend the Portuguese Cataplana or the Striploin. Wine list is extensive and the waiters are clearly well educated and informed on the selection unlike many other restaurants... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
