Fantastic food and great fun but not the place for a romantic evening

A very enjoyable evening as long as you are in a group and/or up for a lot of interaction with the staff. This is smallish restaurant with about 30 covers, and is in an area with similar Portuguese restaurants. The menu is fixed and is mostly fish. That said, this is possibly the tastiest fish I've... read more

This Portuguese restaurant combines perfect food with great animation. Time goes by so quickly. All courses - we had the fish menue - tasted extremely well with good supporting wines. Service and personall are very helpful, and always in a good mood.

Just ignore any negative comments. It's the nicest atmospheric place in the whole vicinity of Spanish/Portuguese quarter. Franco is flamboyant, friendly, polite, warm and all nice things, what's not to like about that! Everything is freshly prepared, therefore it may seem a long wait. But it's not really. Be prepared to be turned away- it's a busy restaurant and obviously... More

Very good, fresh food!! We had ordered the 4-course menu, and a friend who is not the best eater and skipped one was only charged for three. Nice move, nothing you can take for granted in restaurants. I personally liked how much the owner interacted with his guests - taking the Southern European origin into account, you can expect a...

The owner is a bit too loud, too flashy and annoying at times in his attempts to be nice, but the food is good and you can see it being cooked.

We tried our luck with booking a last minute table at this restaurant & Franco squeezed us in. The evening felt like a spectacular homecoming with fire, entertaining speech, lively music and fresh, mouth-watering fish. I'm sure the evening 'show' doesn't alter much from evening to evening, so not a place to visit every night as the order of events... More

This is a small, intimate Fish Restaurant in the heart of the Portuguese Quarter of the City. Booking is advisable if not essential, this is a very popular restaurant with limited space and only really one sitting per evening (irrespective of what time one arrives.) There is no menu: for a fixed price one is served 4 courses, 3 fish... More
