From classic churrasqueira chicken with addictive hot sauce and filling rice and potatoes around to imported Portuguese wines and seafood, these places cover the range of fine and casual dining.

Churrasqueira Martins

Churrasqueira Martins

This place, tucked behind the parking lot of a Value Village in the Rogers Road area, has areas for fine dining, casual dining, and takeout. It imports fresh seafood on the regular and actually has a really nice atmosphere for tucking into humungous portions of surf and turf, or interestingly, scrumptious risotto.

Bairrada Churrasqueira

Bairrada Churrasqueira

This is one of the better known churrasqueiras in town with several locations all named for the Bairrada region of Portugal. They've been grilling chicken for decades and serving it with their own special homemade piri piri sauce, as well as setting sausage aflame right at your table.


Piri Piri

Piri Piri

Piri Piri Grill House has an unassuming exterior on Dupont and the room is a bit dated, but they serve some of the best piri piri-style cuisine in town. Of course, they're best known for their signature piri piri sauce, but the chicken is wickedly juicy as well.


Churrasco Villa

Churrasco Villa

Churrasco Villa has been doing churrasco using natural wood and charcoal for decades. It has origins with a family restaurant in Portugal that began in the 1960s before the Duarte family moved to Canada and brought their Portuguese flavours to Mount Pleasant and Eglinton.

Chiado

There is no finer Portuguese dining experience in Toronto than this College Street institution, with its white linens, valet parking, suave waiters, and a focus on the freshest grilled fish and meats. Items like grilled octopus, tiger shrimp and cod are treated with various Portuguese flavours - piri piri, saffron, and port.

Salt Wine Bar

This Ossington restaurant does sharing plates with influences from Portugal and Spain like sardines, chorizo, and cured ham. Sample these plates and sip from fine imported wines by the glass in the lively room.



Flor de Sal

Flor de Sal

Flor de Sal has a ritzy two-floor fine dining room and serves plates based on a loose Mediterannean theme with influences from all over Europe. They offer elegant Portuguese cornish hen and cataplana, a dish named for the traditional Portuguese cookware it's made with.

Porto Rotisserie House

Located on St. Clair West, this place may have rotisserie in the name but specializes in grilled meats and seafood. It's also a popular spot for ribs, but the seafood options are where the Portuguese influence shines.
