Through a recommendation we went to this restaurant. We did not expect too much and were pleasantly surprised. This is a cosy restaurant with great service. The food was fantastic and affordable. I would love to go through more regularly.

My partner and I visited for dinner tonight. Beautiful traditional food, must try croquettes!!! It's obviously family run and you can see it in the service and the smiles. Highly recommended

We arrived at 2pm and with no reservation, only had to wait about 5 minutes to be seated. A very warm welcome from the staff who were very attentive. Food was simple but delicious- we ordered the sole and the hake. Very reasonably priced too....More

Fairly good food, but took over 1 hour to arrive, and there were only 5 people in the restaurant when we arrived! The veal was almost cold, and came with rice that we said we didn't want. The Sea Bass was quite small, and various...More

I walked in here without a reservation and was lucky to get a table immediately. But I recommend to make a reservation just in case, the place is quite small. Cozy and clean, nice treatment and large plates of good traditional food.

Totally average restaurant. Nothing special. Only the grilled calamari was excellent. We could not find anything in the menu which is recommended,like octopus or liver. The small fish was nice and very generously portioned ,but it became soggy with the black rice's liquids which was...More

First opened in the first half of the last century as a joint that only served chicken. In the late 60s it went on to a traditional Portuguese cuisine restaurant, remaining true to its roots.
