We were told of this restaurant by locals off the tourist paths and real Portuguese food. We were not disappointed. I have the chicken port piri and my wife the tortellini, both were very good and tender. Would go back again.

Made reservations because this spot looked busy. The staff was friendly and service good the food, however, was underwhelming. All four of us ordered something different and we each felt like our meal was just okay. Will skip this place next visit.
