I ask for a grilled "dourada" and it was very good! The place is really small, but the staff very efficient. If its not crowded (which is often the case), it's a good place to eat some traditional local food.

This is a great place to eat authentic Portuguese food. We went for lunch had a lovely cabbage soup and s pork stew with rice and chips with a lovely sauce. We also had sparkling water and LOTS of bread was brought to the table. We couldn't believe the meal for BOTH of us was €15. There is no English... More

Small restaurant with few tables. Daily menu (not in english) was great, variety of fish dishes (and other meat also). Great, great desserts, tasty wine. Very nice waiter (maybe owner himself), we were overhelmed by his performance, he had full restaurant, was quick as hell and he was even able to make a little chit-chat with (mostly local) guests.

The restaurants that I prefer. Small, spartan, kitchen with the door open, attentive service, quickly and without unnecessary frills. The food is sublime, meat, fish, bread, side dishes, desserts and wines are blended perfectly thanks to the fantastic owner who makes the deck, while finding time for anecdotes and explanations of the dishes. Although I am critical I not find... More

Have found that cozy restaurant year ago and backed again. Small nice place with excellent food. Very big portions (we ate all possible kinds of fish here) for small amount of money and you feel full and happy :) I think it's the best place to eat in Porto. Charismatic waiter, food like home and really cheap price makes that... More

I tried ementa turista with a selection of fish. Vegitable soup, wine, grilled fish, dessert and espresso all are in 9 euros. Just perfect portugal dish. Nice server. Perfect. Not that fansy, but warm and cozy restaurant. 9유로에 야채수프부터 와인 메인디쉬 디저트에 에스프레소까지 다 주는 엄청난 레스토랑입니다. 화려하진 않지만 저렴한 가격에 아주 따뜻한 음식들이었어요!

A great family run restaurant not besieged by tourists! €21 for starters, two fish main dishes, wine, bread and butter was superb value. It's small, clean and efficiently run. Definitely worth a visit for either lunch or dinner.

I had grilled fish dish with some potatoes and white wine. The best combination and the price is really good as well. The waiter was very nice and fast. A small, simple, nice restaurant. Recommend for fish!
