The chicken is prepared on the grill out front, filling the air with fragrant smoke. Even in mid afternoon it was crowded. Very inexpensive and delicious. Friendly staff. Worth a stop when in town.

You are lucky if you can get a table at lunch time 12.00-14.00. The place is jumping. Outside tables. Chicken is what to have. The churrasqueira has been grilling chickens for 40 years. They even give a loyalty card. Easy to talk to people at the next table should you be solo. A few obvious looking resident anglos venture there.... More

Be prepared to Queue if you are later than 12.30. That should tell you all you need to know ! With a strong local clientele as well as visitors you know it will be Portuguese and not a trippers stop. Chicken and chips or Fish and chips, your choice. Both equally good at an excellent price.

Simply gorgeous and authentic! Perhaps you have to wait a bit to find place, but definitely it is worth! No menù ...and you will not miss it, simply sit down and eat what they serve!

The chicken extremely small and consequently very dry meat with not much taste of spices. After asking for the bill a... More

Crispy perfect chicken Piripiri, those that like it a little hotter need to ask for... More

We visited for a week to see family, they have been visiting this restaurant for the past 4 years. They couldn't wait to take us here, sitting in the street enjoying authentic peri peri chicken at a great price what more can you ask for. If you are looking for an up market restaurant this is not it. But if... More

This is a no frills, rustic streetside restaurant.Its always really full so be prepared to stand and wait for a table. the food is cooked in front of you on a large bar-b-q. Paper table cloths, wooden benches and tables are the order of the day. As they are so busy services can be slow. These are all the things... More
