Cheap restaurant where you can get local food. Lots of locals also visited here. If you want to have something Portuguese have every day, you may come over here.

“Great local feel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

After reading mixed reviews on this place we were not sure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. The waitress was warm and friendly and explained the menu in as much detail as she could in English. When she could not find the words she would show us the food. We seemed to be surrounded by locals, not surprising really considering we ate a three course meal for two with drinks for €17! Would Definately recommend

Cheap restaurant but the food was not good, everything was fried and with lots of fats. We had a horrible cod fish with french fries. Bad expirience!

Dear Mr. Guilherme
we are very sorry that your experience with us was not the best but I have to say that what you ate here is a tipical Portuguese dish and yes the codfish is fried, it comes with fries and it has a fat sauce, it's a very popular dish amongst us that most people enjoy a lot.
We hope you will come and visit us again but please don't forget to mention that you don't enjoy fat and fried food and we will be very pleased to recomend you other tipical meal within your taste.

Thank you for your visit

Best Regards

Lamento que desta vez seja essa a sua opinião, uma vez que o grupo que acompanhava já cá veio por diversas vezes e pelos visto tem gostado e tem voltado, nunca houve queixas da comida, nem da bebida... infelizmente desta vez não tiveram o melhor comportamento tendo em conta que estavam num restaurante lotado ...se calhar por isso foram advertidos... e convidados a sair...
