A hidden gem offering authentic Portuguese food. We had a few prawn platters and they were cooked to perfection. Nice rustic and relaxed ambience. Give it a try!

This place is almost hidden away but ask a local and they will direct you to this place. We hand three full chickens , chips and a salad to share between the 5 of us and nothing was left , it was so good. The...homemade sauces are really good. When in PE just go thereMore

One of my favourite places to eat in PE, Tanya is carrying on her late father Fernando’s legacy by offering unpretentious yet utterly delicious food - great Portuguese chicken, ribs, steaks and prawns, and the chips are the best in PE.

What an awesome restaurant. The food was amazing, the service was brilliant and the atmosphere festive. Make sure you order a lot of items and have a feast if you want the best experience.

A planned light meal turned out to be a culinary feast! The moelas and fish cakes were excellent starters. The grilled chicken special ordered by my wife was done to absolute perfection - flavourful and juicy without being undercooked. My preggo roll was crispy with...tender slices of steak. I like the fact that the very tasty peri-peri sauce is provided separately in a bottle so you can determine how hot you want your dish to be.More

We opted for the take away option and we loved the food. The chicken was juicy, tender and tasty, Portuguese rolls yummy and the chips tasted home made. Great salad as well. Next time we'll try the chicken livers, which have been recommended by several...friends. Good value for money.More

A group of us went out for a quick meal and had been to Fernando's before. Again, we were not disappointed!! The chicken fillets I enjoyed were succulent and flavourful - and tender! And the chips!?!? I am beginning to think that they are the...best in P.E....More

Didn’t book but felt welcome from the moment we stepped into the restaurant. Good food. Good service. Sparked joy ala Marie Kondo.
