Our host made a reservation for us here. We were a large group, but the staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant is a homey faux-tavern, so a mix of mismatched tables and chairs and cutlery. Nice atmosphere to have a meal with friends, but very touristy. The drinks are relatively expensive (1,60 for a small ice tea, 1 L... More

Nice atmosphere, good service, nice food and pricey. Expect approx 50€ for two people (two tapas, one main, one dessert and some drinks). Don't miss the scrambled eggs with sausage and wild meat! :-) Recommended to book ahead.

We enjoyed the bacalao with polenta, and the bread that comes with tomato and cilantro, or goat cheese and honey. Quirky interior design, friendly service. Prices are moderate. All in all, it made for a fun evening!

We were recommended this place by our hotel and were impressed by the food, the staff and the ambience. We will probably go again during our stay as we enjoyed it so much.

We enjoyed this small, atmospheric restaurant that claim to source local produce and cook with love. There were no vegetarians mains so we ordered a starter, mushroom and chestnut pie, and a salad, mango apple cheese etc, and loved both. We ate two small desserts, a very alcoholic mousse and yummy strawberry cake. This was enough and I was glad... More

Got recommended this place from a local chef and it lived up to the expectations! Traditional portuguese slow-food made with lots of love and served tapas-style. Staff was very friendly and helpful and very reasonable prices made this excellent value! Not a place to visit if you're in a hurry, take your time and try everything on the menu! ;)

I signed up to TripAdvisor simply to tell you that you should never ever go here. It was atrocious. The food was abysmal despite the pleasant staff and exorbitant prices. The tapas was (barely) passable to start and the wine was fine, but the meat for our main (the veal rib) was of very poor quality and we could not... More

Delicious food, especially 'petiscos' (try chicken liver with apple and balsamico sauce), and excellent service. Previous reservation required, especially if you want to get a table for dinner at 20.00 (they have two 'shifts' - for 19.30/20.00 and for 22.30....)

The space is interesting, the attendants are nice (maybe a bit too much) and the food is ok, although too oily to my taste. They charge too much (for Portuguese standards) for what would be a slightly above average meal.
