Our party of four tried the fried eel, fried red fish, lean pork loin and omelette with ham and cheese. Everyone felt the meal to be too oily for our liking. Portions were decent but prices were slightly steep compared to other similar restaurants. Overall a decent meal but probably not a place to waste a meal at unless everything... More

Visited this restaurant twice as the food was so good. It is a little bit out of the main tourist part of town, but well worth the walk

A typical restaurant with wooden tables and red check tablecoths. The waiter seemingly distracted at first became friendly. Good choice of typical Portuguese dishes all well prepared and delicious. Only fault was that one meal was delayed making it uncomfortable for the other diners. Can thoroughly recommend the liver dish.

I came here for dinner on my own to try more local food, and was not disappointed. The blood sausage served with orange was delicious and the veal steak with regional sauce even more. Highly recommended if you are looking for a traditional setting with tasty food. The price also seemed very reasonable.

A small menu, not spectacular. Server didn't seem too interested. We got much better service at Papa's Pizza.

We went in for lunch around 1pm and asked what was the plate of the day and were told it was over. They open at noon and close at 3, so we ordered from the menu. Staff did not speak English, but we managed to order. The food was just OK and the bill was 35 Euros. Everybody in the... More

I lunched here on New Years Eve. My tomato soup and bacalhau with a half litre of draft red wine were excellent value at less than 12 euros. What made the experience special was the kindness of the owner who phoned around to find out which restaurants would be open the next day. It helps if you speak portugues, as... More
