“Friendly and inexpensive!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Its not a fancy restaurant but the food , the people and the price are very good!
Meat is the main attraction , mostly grilled and accompanies with salad and home made fries (delicious). Deserts are great too and in the end of the meal they also offer you a digestive liquor. Recommended for groups and fiends diners. On weekends is better to make a reservation!

“Meat specialist”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

This is the place to go for met lovers, the meat is excelent and no one will leave hungry. The restarant is hard to find but weel worth to try, I guarantee you that this will be a experiece you newer wil forget. We have been here at several occasions with visitors and it have always been a succes.
Excelent meat dishes, tomoto salat as good as you can get it. And lovely portugese red wine, ask for a good bootle and they have a lot of diffrent types.

“The best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

By far the best restaurant I have been to in my 5 years living in Portugal, be aware that this is a meat restaurant and not vegetarian friendly, although they do have potato chips, salad and freshly baked rolls. The environment is relaxed and warm, the staff are friendly and the food is out of this world, I have been there more than 10 times and it has never disappointed me, nor has it changed. Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic.

One final warning, go easy on the two bottles they bring you at the end of the evening! Dangerous stuff ;)

“for meat lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

if you like delicious meat, with a good seasoning and an all you can eat rollercoast of flavours, then this is your place, its not fancy, but its a good place to see the gastronomy side of the portuguese "toureiros" (bullfighters). dont forget to make an reservation.
