The Portuguese food is excellent regarding taste and quality. We had an excellent cod "Bacalhau a Lagareiro", roast Octopus and amazing roast potatoes. This type of traditional and genuine food quality is becoming difficult to find these days The decoration and the service do not match the food. However these are detail, The place is a relic if you are... More

Authentic restaurant up a steep hill from Avenida Metro station. This was close to our hotel and handy after a day walking around the city. As with many restaurants we were brought a huge platter of smoked ham and cheese, a big basket of bread and some small plates of soft cheese. There was plenty for two and the cost... More

Good, family run restaurant with Beira style cuisine. Good selection of wines. However, does not take plastic so be prepared to bring cash. Staff helpful. This is down a back street so not easily found although there was a young lady on the main avenue directing potential customers.

The restaurant is nice and the floor is made style "calçada portuguesa". In my view a bit too many tourists but the service is nice and dishes are truly Portuguese although the Bacalhau a casa is a bit too expensive. The menu offers many choices both for fish and meat.

I tend to be suspicious of restaurants that have to tout for business in a busy city, though to be honest, it's rather hidden in a backstreet. Service was good and the staff were helpful. The food was OK but not remarkable. That's about all I can remember of my visit.

One of the things I always ask for are the chef's specialties. Here one of them was a pork dish: one of the greatest dis-illusions of my life. Uneven pieces of meat - some falling of the bone as they should other like they roasted the salted soles of my sandals: tough to cut and chew. To top everything, the... More

I wanted to go to the Mimosa da Salitre, but it looks as if it might be permanently closed, so, as I didn't want to risk the tourist traps, I came here. I'd been here a year or so ago and, despite a couple of hiccups, it was OK. Not this time. There was only one overworked waitress. The kitchen... More

We ordered the house cod for two and it was delicious! The service was great and friendly. Traditional home style Portuguese food in a friendly family run restaurant. Would definitely go again

Just an average back street restaurant but close to our hotel. Portions were large, service was slow, prices were reasonable.
