This place just about manages to get an average rating in my opinion. There are many other options that offer better food, service and value. I certainly wouldn't return and the service was a bit amateurish.

Hi, Dragoeiro will be open at Christmas and New Year, for a vegetarian meal if you have to order in advance.

Not specifically. There are meatfree dishes but they usually contain fish or seafood. You can always opt for just vegetables. If you want vegetarian, you should go to a vegetarian restaurant, of which there are few.
