Wonderful food. I agree that if you are in northern Portugal, it is worth going out of the way to eat here. We had the best octopus ever. We also had the blood chicken that was wonderful. Although the restaurant was filled with holiday luncheon diners, the service was excellent. There is no menu in English but there were a... More

one of the top restaurants for typical northern Portuguese food. Call for Zita. She is the Owner and she will take care of you like no one. They know exactly how to take care of their customers. Cabrito and Serrabulho! this is what you will ask for! Prepare yourself for a long walk after the meal! Amazing service!

Last day of 2016 with good and happy friends. Excellent food, lots of drinks, music and dance and finally, fireworks. It was a good option if you are looking for a restaurant like 1 hour far from Lisbon. Very local in terms of food, easy parking, smoking area(outside), reasonable price and good service

Good food. Friendly service but please turn off some of those lights! We had two starters and shared a main course. Main courses are generously served so sharing is enough for two

Huge space with a labyrinthic layout. There were a crowd waiting for a table, and a enormous amount of people already eating. We made a reservation by phone, but it was not very useful, because Mr. Camelo only take note of reservations and names when one arrived, and he seems to run the caos on a efficient way. Everyone got... More

The food quality is average, and with that price tag you expect more. And the staff is barely friendly. Very disappointed with the overall service

You know that feeling when you are served a decadent looking chocolate cake, but upon the delivery of that first bite you are greeted with bitter disappointment as the result of an unappetizing dry texture and bitter taste causing you to abandon all hope of reconciling the wide gap between appearance and reality? This pretty much summarizes our experience at... More

Very good overall image, personalized dishes and a fast good service, which is a bit unusual to see in a crowded restaurant. The food tasted very very good, but it comes with a price tag!
