Holidays with pleasant surprises make the joy of living and eating an experience to cherish. The food such as the traditional family Chanfana was succulent, well flavoured and a true reflection of our concept of Portuguese food. The service was first rate with commendable English...More

Bacalhau, chanfana, and other tried and true Portuguese specialities, cooked to perfection with love, served with genuine smiles and goodwill along with local wines and beers. Local regular customers and lucky travelers mingle in this small, family-run eatery tucked away on a side street just...More

Local and traditional food very well prepared. One of the best meals I had in Portugal in three weeks. Well, yes, I was incredibly hungry and I was more than ready for some real meat after so many fish meals, but from any perspective, the...More

Stopped in for lunch at this small, cozy, family-owned restaurant and left completely satisfied. I enjoyed a traditional cabbage soup, followed by goat "stew," hearty chunks of goat shank braised in red wine accompanied by tender, flavorful potatoes. My wife had a flavorful octopus with...More

This family run restaurant has a regular local clientele who know a good thing. The goat is very good. Seems to always offer four fish dinners and four meat dinners. Large portions, and the price is always 7.5 Euros.

This is a small, family, neighborhood place that offers 7.50E lunch specials, which all seem to be Portuguese specialties. We had our first meal in Portugal here. It was a very short walk from our hotel and a short walk to the Ponte Santa Clara...More

This is a very plain place where we had a delicious late lunch. This was recommended by Rick Steves and was well worth the search. This is a family run place and the service was very good. It was an easy walk to Old Town.

This is a cafe that, to be honest, looks like it would serve truck-stop quality food, but don't be fooled. Although the prices were the best we found on our trip, the food was actually quite exceptional! It's not a place for a fancy, romantic...More

We, too, ate here based on a recommendation in Rick Steves. The goat stew was good, but nothing memorable. The place is simple and basic, as is the food. The furnishings and table setting is all very simple and basic. Decent and cheap, for sure....More
