Waiter was friendly enough, but service was very slow even though it wasn't that busy. Unfortunately we hadn't done our research and by the time we found out that the restaurant next door had much better reviews it was a bit late.

When the food finally arrived it was mediocre at best. The oily food also gave me indigestion for a couple of hours afterwards.

O Virgilio dubs itself seafood palace- there must have been a palace revolt though, seeing how they treat the poor seafood! Lapas left for several minutes to cool to a congealed rubbery substance on the counter while the waitress was busy half a meter away folding napkins. Only for the patient and those who don't eat seafood maybe. The fish fared a little better but was still less good than at the neighbouring place.

Was there with my family. Had lapas as a starter and bolo do caco. Both lovely and tasty and the seafood was very fresh. Ordered the Octopus(picado de polvo) and it was amazingly prepared with herbs and olive oil and the chips were freshly made with potatos (not the frozen ones) and also very tasty. The service was very good and a good value for the money. Quick service and a very nice location.

Danger. Dishes are not fresh. Octopus had a bad smell and such an awful fish soup made of fish skin and old potatoes should only be served to pigs.
