Great food, great staff. Everything makes you feel like home. Veal with mushroom and Oporto sauce is simply heavenly. Apple crumble and french pudding are a must.

At the risk of upsetting a nation, Portugal for all its superb port and wines, probably does not have one of the world's great cuisines. In that context, Tasca do Zequinha is a tiny village bar with five tables upstairs, and serving wholesome, country village cooking. We ate there twice at the end of October, and had a great welcome... More

Excellent small family run restaurant. André welcomes guests in a very friendly manner, and his sister cooks great traditional dishes. Very reasonable prices.

The food was all well prepared and the service friendly. The small dining room with four... More

Lovely,tasty food from a great selection. Served by Andre with his great sense of humor, cooked by his sister who showed real concern that we were enjoying her creations, in a room bedecked with hand written commendations from previous diners. We went three times.
