Portogiesian Family restaurant close to the harbor/Landungsbrücken. Original Portogiesian food, wine and drinks. All plates are very tasty. Coshy style of the restaurant, very friendly staff and good prices. Our recommendation for the Eastern time: sheep in tadgine with red wine

First of all, my rating on the place is based on the entire experience and not only on the food. First of all, this is a cozy place that gives you a good feeling when entering the it. But is seems at bit dirty and...the ventilation is really bad. You have to open the window on a packed night like ours. The second thing is the attention from the staff. They are very nice, but things do not move along in a fast pace. This may be in the nature of the Portuguese style, but a little slow after my opinion. We tried a lot of the starters on the menu, and they were on the spot. Really tasty and they are highly recommended. The main course was my own fault, I ordered the steak, but this is not a steak place. It was not made in the manner I ordered and it was dull to be honest. On the other hand I was filled up with starters so it didn’t really matter. The portions are really big and gives good value for money in that perspective. Nice place, but bad indoor conditions, little slow service but the food was ok. Totally up to you!More

The food was over cooked, salty and quite dry. Disappointing given the high TripAdvisor rating, which was the reason we chose the restaurant. The service however was very good.

We try to avoid touristic places in our trips, but after reading some good reviews for this restaurant, we decided to make an exception. We ordered a bottle of water, some shrimps as starters and fish as main dishes. The shrimps came after 10 minutes...and they were ok, but we had to wait 2 hours for our fishes. After 2 hours we decided to live the restaurant and to go somewhere else to eat. I cannot say something about the food because it didn’t come :/ and the staff not very polite. It was the only bad experience in the beautiful city of Hamburg.More

This restaurant was offered me by a local tour guide in the late October. It is famous for its grilled fish. Portuguese family who ran the restaurant were very friendly.

We were a party of five, mixed languages and culinary tastes. Ordered five starters which we shared. Wow, the portions were very generous and the food tasted so good. Everyone was remarking how each dish was so delicious. Compliments to the chef. With some trepidation...we waited for our main meals as we were so full from the starters. The main meals did not disappoint and were thoroughly enjoyed by all. Excellent service by the chaps on duty on the 16th October 2016. Would highly recommend this restaurant and would perhaps suggest to book as we were very lucky to be squeezed in. Muito Obrigado from the Portuguese woman and friends from South Africa and America.More

O Frango is situated in the heart of the lively Portuguese quarter of Hamburg, near the harbour front (go for a walk along the river after your meal) We visited O Frango on a Wednesday night on the recommendation of a Portuguese friend and got...there at about 19.20 and it was already nearly full we hadn't reserved but managed to get a table for two. Within an hour the restaurant was full. They also have some tables outside on the pavement but the evening was too chilly to sit outside. This would be great in the summer though. The tables are very close together and when full the restaurant is quite noisy. There was also a live guitarist moving between the tables. The service is friendly and helpful and the menu is traditional Portuguese. We ordered a mixed tapas dish. There is quite a long wait between ordering and getting the food but if they cook everything fresh then I'm prepared to wait a little. While we waited we had bread, olives and garlic butter with our chilled vinho Verde. When the food came it was a gigantic platter which almost filled the small table. There were eleven different dishes ranging from fried whitebait to chorizo to scampi to fillet steak to cheese. Every one was delicious and this made for a very good meal indeed. I wouldn't advise ordering anything more than this as we couldn't finish it. A main course would be superfluous. We didn't have room for dessert so just finished off with very good coffee. If you want the authentic atmosphere and wonderful food of a little Portuguese restaurant, then you can't go wrong with the excellent O Frango.More

This is a family run VERY BUSY place where Portuguese is spoken. The interior is pure Portugal funk. They served the best food we had during our time in Hamburg, by far. The fish was just like you get in Portugal. Huge platters of Salmon,...Sardines, Halibut, Calamari, all at a price that makes you want to go back. A little example? Half a lire of excellent house red wine? 6 Euro. Fish platter for 2 that could easily feed 4? 32 Euro. You are welcomed with open arms here are. Super dining experience.More
