“Terrible service”
Review of O Virgilio

O Virgilio
Ranked #14 of 26 Restaurants in Sao Vicente
Cuisines: Portuguese
Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 May 2017 via mobile

There's not much to say except that we waited for over 15 minutes before we asked for someone to serve us. The restaurant only had a few tables. There were two waiters - the waiter completely ignored us and the waitress was less than accommodating- too much effort. I will not recommend this restaurant to anyone simply because of bad service. Not acceptable at all.

Tuna Steak was great, Coral Lager better and lapas as a starter and main course for several :)

If we check value for money was 5*

Ask for the grilled squid! This is the best! Also mixed seafood was excellent as well as other seafood dishes. Simple place but proper food.

We order picado, a small one, and it was big anyway. That made me happy, some restaurants they say that one smal fits for two and when we gonna see doesn't even fits for a kid. The bad thing was the bolo do caco, it wasn't fresh
The service was very nice, people were friendly.
And it wasnt expansive

After a long walk we were starving so headed towards Sao Vicente & were lured here by the espetadas on the specials board. Both food & wine did the job & the meat was tasty & succulent, although it was served with slightly soggy fries. It did the job in filling us up but was really nothing outstanding. It must be hell trying to drum up business in Jan in an area like this so we're trying to eat in a few different places. The staff here were attentive enough but not overly friendly - also not 'in your face' annoying, which I also hate.
