Very comfortable and hospitable atmosphere (especially on the 2nd floor), the food quite good, but not the best choice in Portugal.

Compared to all of the other touristy restaurants in the core of the city, this restaurant is above-average. The food was good and the service was much friendlier than expected. Menu consists of the standard regional items. I would recommend to those looking for a good meal that won't break your budget.
