Friendly service, smiling people that make you feel at home. Food is amazing, everything "homecoked". New decoration with charm. Nice prices too. It is a true winner, as bonus they are catholic so they have wine.

Thank you so much, yes we do serve "home cooked" food and wines from most of the areas in Portugal. Happy to know our new interior and same price as before is making our customers also happy.

I’ve ordered a chicken dish, vegetable samosas and a couple of non fermented bread options. All had great quality, all had a great diversity of condiments, and nicely and cleanly packed.
