Tucked away this restaurant is very traditional - we shared the grilled meats between two of us. Enormous portions could have fed four easily!

Tulhas was the worst experience of my entire stay in Portugal. It was also the worst restaurant experience in my life. I lost a whole day in Lisbon because of their diarrhea-inducing food. But that’s only the half of it … The horrible culinary experience...More
