I'm visited Girassol with my friends. We had a great evening, friendly staff and the chef knows what he is doing. And the wine was great for a good price. I'm highly recommended this restaurant to everyone. And we love to come back soon!

Lovely restaurant both inside and outside in front of the river in an area not affected by gazillion of tourists. We went there because we miss portuguese food. The clams and the “chocos” or deep fried squid were excellent. The best was the “ceviche” -...More

The sangria was soda for kids. Starters were tapas sized. Attached picture is literally the garniture that came with the most expensive dish. Chicken not cooked, meat over cooked, bacalau not warm. We complained about the raw (starter) chicken and it was still billed. They...More
