Nice little restaurant, a world apart from the "cattle tourism" restaurants just few streets away. It's a chic bistro, where the great taste of the food is matched only by the wonderful moustache of the owner! We had the feel of a "slow food" (as opposed to hundreds of nearby fast food places) cooked with heart and expertise especially for... More

Was staying in an apartment opposite this restaurant and decided to give it a try. What a very special evening it was, I can best describe it as a dining experience rather than just a meal. The food was fantastic and the service from the owner was first class. The meal was just over €100 for two, would have paid... More

It's small but very cosy inside. Pieces typical Portugese azulegos on the walls. Marvellous service by owner and his daughter. The food! Marvellous cooked dishes with fresh ingrediants.

Nice place, excellent food. Fish was clearly very fresh and the way it was prepared made it excellent. Service was a bit slow but the owner made it bearable by bringing a round of jamon & olives, unexpected and complimentary. I see that Some reviewers complained about the owner not being overly friendly. Might but true, but he was not... More

The small restaurant offers a daily menu that is not expensive. The Portuguese atmosphere is very inviting. The owner is very friendly. Very good price-qualilty ratio.

We stumbled on this place while looking for a spot for a late lunch. It's just off the main tourist area, and while a lot of other restaurants were busy, this wasn't. The owner/host (and i think he's the chef as well) treated us like royalty; I just wish he'd warned me that the Portuguese Rice, which was full of... More
