This is a tiny family owned place serving great food. I recommend a visit. The first time we went the chicken and chips was excellent the second time not so great. Try a chicken and chips between two people. Great value for money.

We had dinner at O'Tio and were delighted with the friendly service, the authentic food and the very generous helpings. The prawns, calamari and chicken were all worth ordering. The small space allows for a friendly, homely atmosphere with very attentive service. Will definitely visit...More

This was my second meal at O Tio and both have been very enjoyable. Small and family run with great service and interaction from the owner and chef. We all enjoyed everything as well as dessert which we could have done without!!!

A small restaurant, lovely feel as the owner/chef greets guests and checks that the food is to your liking. He even offers samples of other dishes he is working on. Great value for money and definitely offers you more than the chain Portuguese restaurants around.

Good Portuguese home cooked meal. Service can be very slow when busy. Waitress is pleasant and tries hard to please.
