There are more than enough Mediterranean restaurants in Portsmouth to go around, from Spanish and Italian to Turkish and Greek, but the cuisine of Portugal can somewhat be neglected. Not so at Algarve’s Grill. Plenty of Brits have taken the trip to the south to indulge in the vino verdhe, the golf and the beaches of the Algarve, and now there is a restaurant that brings the unique culinary culture of the region to Southsea. The menu is packed with grilled meat dishes, from the iconic piri-piri chicken to bacon and chorizo skewers, ribs and wings. There are traditional Portuguese stews too, and of course seafood specialities so befitting a country that faces the Atlantic Ocean. Book a table and head on into to Osborne Road for a portion on Portugal in Portsmouth.
We had a very good time at Algarve's grill. Our first time there we wanted to try a few things, so we went for a vegetarian mezze and a meat mezze, which have a bit of everything. Plus a really nice bottle of Portuguese wine.
Lovely atmosphere , friendly staff . Went on a Friday, there was life music. The food was amazing . Highly recommend and Will definitely come back .
Second time to Algarve’s Grill! Lovely food and an equally good level of service. The tapas selection and the Paella were excellent. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent food and service. It was my birthday and we were well looked after. We were even offered a complementary glass of wine and a cheese cake-wow!!!! 100% recommended
The service was fantastic however the food could have been far better. The ribs were standard as if they had just been bought from a supermarket and just had sauce poured over. They didn't taste as if they had been marinated for a while. Similarly the chicken wings again just covered in sauce and did not have that South American taste or look. The chorizo was of poor quality and rather chewy. Otherwise the steak was great and so were the chips. My wife said her Portugese steak meal was a little salty. Not that i like to complain but as our first visit to a new restaurant advertising South American food it was lacking in the authentic taste. It felt as if it was just being replicated with the best from a plain supermarket. The staff were great and most welcoming and i would certainly visit again due to the relaxed atmosphere. Food could greatly be improved to give that authentic deep south American taste and feel. I hope improvements can be made and the next time we visit we will enjoy it even more. Many thanks.
The Algarve Grill was very good. Food was good, service was (mostly) good. The food was plentiful and tasty. Only issue, but not a show stopper, is the food was served on cold plates. I like hot plates, keeps the food hot longer, unless it's a salad ;) The service was good. However, did ask what a 'Botique Steak' was and the waitress did not know. But I think she didn't understand what I was asking, not that she didn't know what it was. The online reservation system does not work. Although I had confirmation emails and a slot auto filled on my calendar the reservation did not reach the shop. When I arrived they had no idea of the reservation - no name, number, time etc. Will still use online booking but I'll also call straight after to confirm. Yes, I would eat there again. For Valentines night I was expecting to have no seat but there was room - phew.
Food wasn't amazing, but was good, all cooked well. Service was really good though! The peri peri sauce they use/make is very good, and they were willing to give us a little to take away. One minor thing though, we ordered a mixed salad, which didn't come so we cancelled the order. But it was on our bill at the end, so we had to ask to have it removed.
Algarve's Grill has friendly, helpful staff, a lively atmosphere & delicious food. There is plenty of choice. I had a great birthday and definitely recommend it!
We went for a Mother's Day meal here. Service was fantastic, manager was lovely, all the food arrived together even though it was a large party and it tasted absolutely gorgeous. We all had a lovely time and will definitely go back!
Fanstastic experience, the staff are so lovely and helpful. The food was excellent and I would recommend this resturant to anyone. There were groups, families and couple like us all having a great time. See you again soon.
