    Just another FABULOUS evening @ my FAVE resto, Adega. My grilled octopus app was like butter and the Cataplana was, per usual, stellar...nothing new here, just CONSISTENTLY EXCELLENT. My guests enjoyed salads pasta and shrimp and a salmon entree...we were all just VERY happy.

    But what elevates Adega's food to even a higher level of delicious is the kindness, professionalism and heartfelt service of EVERYONE who works there. Thank you Marco and all your beautiful staff for making our dinner so enjoyable EVERY time I come.

    Really good service, excellent food. Safran risotto was the best . Totally recommend. Seafood stew also recommended specially if you get bread to dip on the stew. Nice classy environment.

    Tremendous food - a take on Portuguese with a focus on seafood - couldn't decide between the octopus and seafood stew (got the octopus - was great, fellow diner got the stew, also great).  Server was very helpful with advice, input, although seemed just a little bit over booked (was a Monday night). Nice cocktail and wine selection, with creative options.  Very good port selection for after dinner as well.  Small intimate space and getting a table along the walls enhances that.

    We had a lovely meal at Adega on March 8th, but we were charged twice. The credit card machine froze and they re-ran the charge for ~$450 a second time (despite my concern that we would be charged twice). We've called and spoken to the general manager, Marco, a few times to try and get a refund. He has apologized, says this has happened a few times recently, but he's unable to refund the duplicate transaction. He told us to wait a few weeks because it might get refunded, maybe. In the meantime, I am disputing the charge via our credit card company - but it's a huge hassle. I tried to resolve this by working with the restaurant but haven't been able to get my money back. I'm happy to remove this review once we get refunded.

    Tasty food! Adega Restaurante is dimly lit with a fair amount of wood and a wine cellar that can host larger groups for dinner. In addition, they have a small amount of outdoor seating where we were fortunate enough to obtain. I ordered the marinated olives with bread as a starter and the braised short rib ravioli for an entree. The bread was served warm and featured both a classic French baguette and a Portuguese cornbread. The bread was as good as expected and the marinated olives were scrumptious. The ravioli was excellent featuring lovely presentation and a skilled combination of flavors. Overall, I would recommend Adega Restaurante for a nice dinner.

    I haven't been to Adega in years but it is definitely one of my favourite seafood and Portuguese restaurants in Toronto! What I love most about this restaurant is that the staff are absolutely exceptional not to mention that the food is delicious. Everyone from the host to our wait stuff and especially Ryan our waiter tonight were so knowledgeable, hospitable and accommodating. I'm so thrilled that this place is thriving even after the last few years that restaurants have been struggling. If you haven't been here it is definitely a hidden gem but also a long-standing institution in Toronto with some of the most authentic and exceptional Portugese food. We enjoyed the delicious and plentiful platter and tonight's special app the avocado and tomato salad which were so robust with flavour! I myself have been looking forward to enjoying this cataplan fish stew as I have fond memories of coming here often and enjoying it especially on a cold rainy day like today. The seafood risotto looked beautiful as well! The cocktail menu and wine menu is reflective of old school European bistros with many great wines to select from. Lastly, check out this beautiful cloud of meringue enrobed in caramel! So heavenly! I will definitely have to come back again soon! Thank you again to the staff for this incredible experience!

    My favourite part of the dinner was the waiter. He was very polite and charming:)
    Food was good. Most of the dishes we ordered were little too salty.

    Mmmm I love it when Summerlicious comes around! My friends and I came here to try Adega - not realizing how fancy and intimate of a place it is, a couple of my friends wore t-shirts and felt very underdressed and out of place. The service is good, but I found it slightly pushy - we were asked on multiple occasions whether we'd like wine, sparkling water, etc.

    Each table has unlimited bread and olives as appetizers to share. The bread I found a bit dry, while the olives were overly salty. That said, it's a good way to fill up if you're starving!

    I ordered the grilled sardines as an app (the waiter said it's a must-order if you love fish), grilled squid as a main, and three flavours of sorbet as dessert.

    The grilled sardines were pretty good - it was a large plate with 3-4 fillets. The sardines are grilled and then dressed with a citrusy tomato sauce, and served with some sweet pineapple chunks as well. It's a good dish, but not really my preference.

    The grilled squid is fairly small as a main. There are two squid bodies that are grilled in olive oil, and presented alongside small carrot cubes, a small potato, and some withered pea shoots. It's a light meal, but quite good.

    The sorbets were served in a small bowl, but with an awfully large spoon! They really should invest in smaller non-soup spoons. The flavours were mango, berry, and some sort of guava mixture.

    Overall, the meal was good, but I've had better Summerlicious options at a lower price. Adega is good, but some other ones definitely rank higher on my list!

    I came here with my mom for winterlicious 2019. I was lucky enough to get street parking right in front of the restaurant around lunch time. Parking is $5 an hour so budget for that.

    The resto looks like a converted old home and the offering is Portuguese cuisine. It is a white table cloth eatery and at the time when we went the tables were 50% full. The clientele looked like Bay Street/financial districters and retirees.

    You get olives, bread and olive oil on the table pre your meal. The servers were professional and quite nice. One thing I will say however is that the portions are quite small. But not to the point where you leave dissatisfied. We got the lobster bisque and beef carpaccio to start. Both were very good, however the beef carpaccio was 4 extremely thin pieces of beef. For main we got the piri piri carpon and shrimp linguine. Both I highly recommend, even though the portions where small they were well plated. Lastly was dessert... I'm not going to lie my mom laughed when she returned from the washroom and saw our finishers. I had a Creme caramel which was just a strip of dessert. Literally just a strip. And she got an egg white puffed situation? Again, great presentation and my dessert did pack a punch but we were not impressed with hers.

    I paid $70 (including tip) for both of our 3 course meals. This is why I love the "licious" menus. Otherwise I wouldn't have eaten here!
