Churrasqueira Martins Grill House: A Portuguese Gem





Owned and operated by Carlos and Samantha Martins since 1992, Churrasqueira Martins Grill House is a neighbourhood gem, tucked away in a small plaza in the Rogers and Old Weston Road neighbourhood of Toronto. Famous for its fabulous fish and succulent Barbecue Chicken, Martins imports their fish twice a week from Portugal which arrives fresh on ice, never frozen, and serves quite possibly the city's best whole grilled fish and seafood in the city. Cooked to perfection and flavoured with love, the Grilled Octopus is the best in the city. Relaxed and informal with an outstanding menu of over 60 Portuguese classics and extensive wine list including their label of reasonably priced red and white wine, Martins sensational cuisine is only matched by their warm, friendly and gracious staff. Not to be missed are Martin's Pastéis de Nata, Portugal's famous custard tarts which are freshly baked per order and served hot from the oven.
