I came with a group - we were well served with fresh, simply-cooked and tasty food, service was good and efficient. Well worth a visit, it is easy to access and has an inside dining area as well as tables outside by the river Douro.

No need. Just pop in. During busy times like lunch and dinner this place is easily fully booked. I strongly suggest to come in a bit early. All the very best! 😊
