4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2014 NEW

you sit under lights brighter than a hospital waiting room, but the food was less lurid.....in fact pretty good portuguese staples....mainly grilled seafood and chicken. The place was full, with a full bar and que out the door. A nice spot for a quick informal meal with friends before hitting the Barrio next door...

This was a very busy local restaurant with communal tables. Fantastic atmosphere! The staff do not speak english, but that makes ordering way more fun. The food is fantastic, especially the fish soup which only costs one euro. I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you want to try local specialities and enjoy a unique atmosphere.

Over-rated. Amazing that people queue for such average food. The chicken was dry and nothing special. The sardines were some of the worst I have had. Not recommended.

This is a funny restaurant, attracts people due to its great grilled chicken barbecue smell :) but thre is a lot on offer for a very cheap price. But due to being probably the cheapest restaurant in this nice fancy area it fails on service... There are people queuing for probably 30 minutes outside the doors to get a table.... More

Frites were super greasy Meat was hand warm Beer really ok I believe it is simply is overrated; any Portuguese in a small street in a less busy location serves better...

Tasty seafood and local food. Unfortunately no oysters in menu. Sometimes is possible to order clams which absent in menu. Reasonable prices. Always seperate line for take-away chicken. At the evening need to wait for vacant seats. We waited just 10-15 min, but we were lucky, because need just 2 seats. Most of visitors are locals. I will reccomend this... More

This is a wonderful casual bustling restaurant serving excellent Portuguese food. The grilled squid and grilled sardines were both superb; vegetables were fresh and potatoes very good. Lovely olives too. The waiters are top-notch professionals who handle the large crowds and fast pace with skill, courtesy and good humor. We found this restaurant a much better choice than many higher-priced... More
