I ate there this week. The owners are very friendly. It's a simple restaurant with simple family food. I ate vegetable tasty food, meat with rice and potatoes and a chocolate mousse to die for. All this for a cheap price. What else?

We were in Viseu tired and hungry. This was a welcoming home for us. We were served nice food made by Mom. How do we know? We got to spend an evening with the whole family. A very nice meal and memorable evening.
