Adega means wine cellar in Portuguese, and this fact is reflected in the decor of this restaurant, located in the heart of
The menu is a combination of Spanish and Portuguese dishes. My favorite appetizer is a dish of tiny, tender cockles in a spicy garlic-wine broth sparked with cilantro. Meaty fried frogs' legs with garlic and sliced chorizo sausage with garlic are also delicious...
Of the main courses, I love the filet mignon na Pedra, slices of tender raw beef that arrive with a hot marble stone on which you cook them; accompanied by mustard and garlic butter for dipping, it's a wonderful meal to share. Broiled salt cod with green peppers, which comes surrounded by boiled potatoes, is flaky and flavorful. Paella Valenciana, loaded with lobster, shrimp, clams, chicken, cubes of pork, and chorizo sausage, is also good. Many dishes at Adega Grill are covered with so much stuff, it can be difficult to find the main ingredients. This is true of the broiled filet mignon with brandy and mushrooms and the salty veal with mushrooms, both served with mounds of crisp Spanish potatoes and vegetables.
Few of the dessert list's nineteen choices are made on the premises. The flan is made here, though it's heavy and not worth the calories. Try instead the lemon tartufo, which strikes just the right balance between sweet and tangy, or the chocolate molten center.
