Dropped in for lunch. It was packed with locals. Great food and very friendly service. Very reasonably priced. House wine was great also. For a genuine local meal this is a great spot.

Our first day in the Douro Valley and this restaurant was suggested for a late lunch. The service and food were both excellent. The owner was very hospitable and helped us through the menu with our limited Portuguese. We will definitely go back!
