ok food- even less ok service

This was the closest to good Piri-piri chicken we found on our two-week vacation. It was good enough, but nothing spectacular. Lots of food for a good price though. The servers could brush up on their politeness and engagement skills, and be careful because they will take away your plate even if... read more

Buzzing terrace, good service, best bread and sheeps cheese, excellent Piripiri chicken, shame the house wine was from Spain. Puddings good too. And all for €40.

The views on this place are mixed and having been I can see why. Service is efficient and polite but nothing more. Chicken is ok but whilst it may be the best in town it is not the best you will eat. I am fan of Spanish chicken and this is not as good simply put, but it is ok.... More

If you want Michelin star go elsewhere. However if you want reasonably good food at a decent price then this is for you provided you are are a sociable person and don't mind sitting next to strangers and striking up conversations with people you have never met before. Ok the food is basic but it is well cooked and you... More

We wanted to try chicken piri piri and this place delivered the goods. Seriously the most tender and juicy chicken I've had in a long time! Added bonus were the percebes that they delivered as we sat down - they weren't very large but still provided the delicious saltiness that we love. Another highlight was the creme caramel, which looked... More

Although the eating area is a little cramped, the food here was delicious. My wife and I had different fish in Potuguese style with boiled potatoes and both were absolutely lovely. Service was speedy and efficient and the place is well worth a visit.

We ordered grilled chicken and pork, but unfortunately pork wasn't fresh, didn't smell right so I left it on plate instead of eating it and getting sick. Chicken was nice but how could you serve meat that pass the prime time, that is not ok. Very disappointed, would not eat here ever again.

We had good food for very reasonable prices. The setting is not very inviting and the place seems often crowded, but we had a good quality lunch here. Portions are big, family style restaurant.

Came here back in the "70's" and was pleased to see they were still in business in 2014. You can find the restaurant from the train, just follow the aroma! The wait staff seemed a bit bored but the food was phenomonal. Used Emerill Legasse's recipe when we got back home and it was right on. Like being back in... More
