Description: The idealization of the Barcelos rooster derives from a legend concerning a Gallego who was sentenced to hang, despite his protests of innocence. In a last minute appeal to the judge, who was enjoying dinner at the time, the condemned man made a bold statement: If this claim of innocence was true, the roasted rooster on the judge's plate would get up and crow. Suddenly, a gorgeous scarlet-plumed cockerel rose from the plate, crowing loud and long. The man was acquitted of course!

“Just like Nando's”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

Excellent grill chicken, but can't bit taste of Nando's. I feel the sauce used is bit sour and chicken loss the flavour. Combo is good value for money but the size of chicken is lean compared to Nando's
