Recommended in our hotel, we went out for dinner at the "Tavern Tosca" where we were surprised with the absolutely fantastic traditional cuisine. We recomend the "Pimentos padrão" that accompanied with some great wine is simply amazing... we realy want to came back, ;).

We went for dinner in a pleasant July evening. We did not eat any of the main dishes. A friend advise us to try the portuguese tapas (petiscos). All the petiscos we ordered were pretty average and the clams were too dry in a too small portion. The prices a a bit high for the food quality. The staff was... More

The food was good, but totally overpriced considering the small portions. A basket of very average bread costs 3?!!! The service was unfriendly and not professional at all. Also, the wine we ordered wasn't of 2010 (like indicated on the menu), but 2012. I think for roughly 14? you can ask for the correct year! We left the place really... More

Have been going there on a regular basis for lunch. Service is prompt and really friendly. Menu is simple, yet always appealing. Portions are large. Everyday comes with 3 choices, lots of variety, you never get bored. The meatballs (almondegas), if available on the menu, are a must. The pataniscas de polo are also a nice twist. I'm not a... More

Not sure why this has such good reviews. The food was bland and expensive, service nice enough and the place ok. You would be better off going to Taberna da rua das Flores a couple of streets over.

The restaurant is very nice, and the staff quite friendly although it was rather difficult attracting their attention, we had to go to the bar a couple of times to ask for a waiter to come over. The food we ordered was nice, nothing special, and quite expensive for what you get. We had some cold meats, bread, goats cheese... More

What a great restaurant! We normally don't go somewhere twice while on vacation, but this place is the exception. Delicious food with great service, such a fun atmosphere. Not too touristy but still enough that they were able to understand us! Definitely a good tapas place but also recommend the dessert.
