“Excellent Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

The food here is very well presented and excellent value. The staff are very friendly and cannot do enough for you. We have eaten there many times and have never been disappointed.

“Always good, always cheap, always excellent quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We've eaten here four times now, and the food has always been excellent and plentiful. Lots of locals eat here, too; and you can sit out by the river in the summer. Not to be missed.

“Great Value, Fresh, Friendly & Traditional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Really nice traditional restaurant, sat next to the river and had a great evening under street light !. Great grilled meats, home cooked chips, rice, salads and fresh fish. Great value also one of the cheapest meals of the week - worth a visit but dont expect anything flash just good basic tasty grub at non tourist rip off prices.

“Cheap and cheerful, but the freshest fish all week”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Nice to sit by the river; I had mackerel and my wife had the sea bass. Both were gorgeous. Very very fresh. The home-made "flan" for dessert was also superb. Will be going back.

“Uncomplicated delicious fresh food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

We have used this restaurant a couple of times when the tables are set up outside by the river. Its an enviable location that has the feel of a pop up eaterie and can get very busy in summer evenings.
The food is from a limited yet adequate menu of fresh seasonally available local produce prepared and served simply. The Prato do Dia is especially good value, as ever, and the usual Portuguese sides are available. The prices are generally very good for the location, and a decent sized Robalo (Sea Bass) is 10 Euros, while the wine list is cheap and cheering.
Service is friendly but can be a bit slow when they are busy so be prepared to wait as the girl (even girls sometimes!) covers inside and out. It is worth the wait however and we will be back!
