I finally went to Senhor Antonio last night. My partner and I both opted for the tasting menu ($40), thinking that would offer us greatest range of dishes. We assumed that, as in all other restaurants where we've had a tasting menu, we'd each get different dishes. And indeed, the first plate (two cold tapas), differed for each of us (we both got the tomato salad but I got the sashimi and he got cod salad on a crisp). Unfortunately, the rest of our dinner was identical (we each got the risotto with quail, the shrimp in spicy sauce, chorizo, and grilled octapus). All was excellent - the seafood was perfectly cooked, the quail was amazing, so moist and full of flavour, in all the food was delicious. But we were quite disappointed at the fact that we had sampled far fewer dishes than we would have had we chosen a la carte. The waiter also seemed unaware of how many dishes nor in what order the tasting menu would include, which made wine ordering difficult. Other than that, though, the service was excellent, and the wines very enjoyable (although not well matched).
