Good homely food served by guys who clearly care a lot about the food the serve and their customers. Lots of locals seem to eat there which is a good sign. Desserts are not their strong point.

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.

It's worth to go there ! Food was delicious and the service there is very nice. For starter, main course and dessert with espresso we paid +/- 40Euro.

Small and comfortable restaurant, with a simple but tasty menu. Whether if you go for meat or for fish, it will taste you like home-made cooking. Service is very welcoming and efficient. Always a place to return.

Most of the other reviews tell it all. We enjoyed the meal and certainly recommend it to others. Not all of the staff speak English, but that wasn't a problem as another waiter came to our rescue.

This is a cosy little place that filled up early on the night we went and by the time we finished we could see why. Chorizo and black pudding (morcella) to start was followed by Bacalhau a bras and steak. A great portion of Bacalhau...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.
