“Excellent traditional portuguese cuisine. Gorgeous desserts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Excellent location, nearby the fish market. The food is traditional portuguese cuisine and you can find a very wide selection of dishes, from meat to fish. The desserts are absolutely gorgeous. Nice wine list

“The place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

If you're wandering in Aveiro and are looking forward to enjoy a good Portuguese meal, this is the place to go to. This restaurant has been open for many years, the environment is typically Portuguese and so is the food. There is a large variety of meat and fish. However, I'd recommend you to go when you're hungry indeed and if you're up to share. Quantities are quite big (1/2 dose is enough for one person, whilst 1 dose is for 2 people). You should try 'arroz de tamboril e gambas', 'bacalhau com natas' or any grilled fish. It's a bit pricier than average restaurants, but the value is excellent. We were shown the fish before ordering! And if you want to try some dessert, I'd recommend 'natas do céu' or 'pudim caseiro'.

“Good food, but horribly understaffed.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

We enjoyed a great meal, but were disappointed with the slow and brusque service. It was obvious the restaurant was suffering from a staff shortage (too many vacations at once???).
