Anyone have a recent view on this Portuguese restaurant?

    I had a very good dinner at Adega in early May.

    I started with a beet salad, and had the octopus as my main. My friend had some sort of Cataplana, a Portuguese seafood stew, which had a generous amount of seafood. Nice basket of Portuguese breads, including Portuguese corn bread and Portuguese white bread.

    The grilled octopus is the most generous portion I've seen outside Portugual. It was at least twice as generous as recent portions at Volos and Mezes, and a better tasting version. It's garlicky version, but tasty.

    Friendly service. Good choice for the area.

      One of the most dependable of all good Toronto restaurants-great food-great service. Win win all round. The Cataplana and the Octopus is always first rate.

      Well iI was there a night ago, I had the smoking bacon risotto and others had the Cataplana and declared it the best they had had so far. The service could not have been better and the atmosphere really great. Ageda is now on my small list of place to go with friends,

        I agree with others. Reliably good food and service, and a good place to go with a group.
