The sirloin steak was excellent, the other entrees were good too but what was remarkable was the friendly service ! Joao and Aida who were there both evenings that we ate at O Salmao were efficient and helpful. One night it was late by the time we finished dinner so we asked them where we could get some milk and... More

We had dinner here twice and we had a perfect time from the very beginning until we left on both occasion. Our waiter was very polite and helpful, eager to explain all dishes we were interested in. He brought even the "big fish... More
