“Lovely find by the Castle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

Retreated into this cafe on a rather wet Thursday afternoon and very pleased we did.
The Vinho Verde was delicious and lunch was spot on. We weren't looking for a big meal and the sardine toastie & tuna salad for both of us was more than enough.
The staff were very friendly and didn't rush us even though we stayed quite awhile just chatting.
Lovely place, so pleased we walked up the hill to find it.

“Friendly, relaxed cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Stopped here for a late lunch. Relaxed and cozy atmosphere with warm and friendly staff. We ate inside but they also have a back patio. Since there is no proper kitchen, the menu is limited. We had the special plate with chorico, cheese, smoked ham, olives and bread, and also split a tosta mista with ham, cheese and tomato. All was delicious, and washed down with glasses of Super Bock. I wish we'd had time to go back for a glass of wine. Would definitely recommend!

“An average place.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

To eat a drink or a coffee(bica) or eat a snack this is a nice place because of the location. The food could be better and there's room to improve.

“Hidden treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Excellent place for a drink and a snack when you visit the castle . Very friendly, efficient service, attractive decor. Good menu including fresh pastries. Local customers as well as tourists add to the atmosphere of this well run family business. Well worth seeking out.
