“Busy place with good food”
Review of Honorato's

Honorato's
Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 September 2017

We dined here on a very busy Wednesday night in August, the restaurant was almost full by 9 o'clock and very noisy but had a good convivial atmosphere. The 5 waiters were kept very busy with the result that the service was patchy with a long wait to order and then get and pay for our bill. The food itself came out quite promptly and all four dishes were very good. My own tagliatelle carbonara was plentiful and very tasty as were the steaks and pizza that the other three in our party had. We would certainly return but at a less busy time.

The service was so bad we didn't get to the taste the food as we walked out. After waiting 10 minutes after sitting down and nobody bothering to come to our table, takes drinks orders , we left. There are so many friendly nice restaurants nearby so why put up with such service ?

Our 36 wedding anniversary had booked a table here, by personal visit, for 18 people, all had been confirmed. Deposit offered and told not needed, not surprised at this as we have been there before know some of the waiters etc.....
We arrived at our given time all 18 of us, no table, they just did not care. Somebody even said you did not turn up yesterday, I said "no reservation was for tonight and do not say that as we walked our dogs here last night and you said good evening to us...."
Just looking for excuses they really did not care that 18 people were outside their restaurant ......
I was not happy, I went in and asked for the complaints book, they just walked away from me. Luckily one of the members of my party was GNR and another one knew the absent owner. Well when the GNR friend got involved things did change, immediately, the complaints book appeared and excuses started to flow again, all unfounded and shot down one after the other. The owner was now on the mobile with his friend apologising for the terrible staff he had there.......
At no stage were we offered any type of apology or even given a drink and asked to wait until a table became available.....NOTHING they just did not care.
Complaints book completed waiting to see what happens there now, and we went to another local Italian that made us feel really welcome, accommodated us saying we might need to wait a while but jugs of Sangria appeared....had a really great evening at Bella Napoli, but Honorato's is a place I am NEVER going back to, they have my mobile number so they can contact me if they want to try to rectify this disgusting attitude and service.....guess what no contact, no apology, nothing.........

This place was chosen as it was the closest and we were hungry...
In the army food like this is called bung hole. It filled a gap. That is all.
The squid came out cold. The baby polvo came out over cooked. They just refried the squid to reheat it for us...
The chips came out after everything else and seemed to be the best of a bad sad bunch.
Bloody expensive crap bung hole and almost the worst meal in Portugal so far.
Suggest finding elsewhere even if you are like an Ethiopian from the famine....

Service non-existent - we waited ages for a menu, then ages for someone to take our choices, then AGES to get our pizza which came BEFORE our couvert which we had ordered and which we then cancelled but which we had to argue at the pay desk we had not had as they had added it to our bill!! There appeared to be lots of staff around, but they seemed less than reluctant to deal with customers. There are lots of good restaurants in VRSA but this is certainly not one of them!
