At this restaurante you can find the traditional Portuguese cuisine at the very best environment. Located in the city center they have a good service and very good food for a good price. You must try it! A very good option.

Great service and food. Everyone was really nice and the place is beautifully cosy. The place serves typical Portoghese food and the dishes are well served. I strongly recommend 'Velhos Tempos'

We had pork with clams, it was so seasoned that you barely could taste the meat, so this was a letdown. However, a friend had cod with broa (portuguese corn bread) and it was great,... More
