Icarai is one of our go-to places for frango assado (roast young chicken). Younger chicken is smaller but more flavorful. We also always get the pork ribs here. Nothing fancy with the atmosphere, not a place to go for a special night out. But it...More

When I went to this place I have experienced a good atmosphere for a friend or family meeting, with good wine (local) and food. I`ve eaten chicken, which I love, and the table was full of good ingredients, spices, condiments, for a good price

Hospitality cleanness, a typical Portuguese restaurant with simple and great food in downtown! Is the kind where the locals have lunch and dinner and open seven days a week !
