This is a must visit when you are in Sao Bras, honest Portugees food. Chicken is what they serve most but do try anything, it all tastes good and the price is very good.

This has to be on your visit list if you are staying in or around Sao Bras De Alportel. Its reputation is fantastic and always busy. Known locally as 'Chicken Luis' it is so worth a visit. Disabled friendly and child friendly.
