If you want to try local cuisine this is the place. Small dishes that need a bit of improvement but overall very satisfied. The staff is so friendly!

We had 5 dishes for 2 people and if we could eat more we would, we loved everything we tried, the taste was just perfect. Try to book or else show up at the opening, as it could be trickier to get a table later on in the evening.

We ended up here after intending to go to the sister restaurant up the road which we found to be closed. The staff were very friendly and recommended ordering 4/5 dishes to share, like a Portuguese tapas. We had the fish soup, ham cheese and flava bean toast, stuffed mushrooms and the crevettes. All were great with really strong flavours... More

We were four at the table, the service was excellent, the dishes are to be shared and were all very good (mushrooms with eggs, the "prego do lombo", codornizes) and the bill, well, for the food and for the ambience it was fair.

We went to Petiscaria Ideal as a friend recommended us to go there and the whole evening was above our expectations. We loved the tuna which was recommended to us from the very attentive service staff. Looking forward to come back again.

We were recommended to try this restaurant and were not disappointed. All dishes are designed to share. Close tables so we met some interesting people. Great place to eat if you are a single traveller.

The owner of our apartment recommended here as a "fun place to eat great food" and she was right. A long narrow restaurant, there are several communal tables as well as some for people who like their own company. Service was bright and amiable. And the menu quickly explained - many sharing plates. They had got around the problem of... More

If you secretly dream of randomly walking pass a small, family-owned and genuine restaurant where the food is cheap and still blows your mind, you've come to the right place. The cliché of southern European countries comes true here, where you are seated wherever they find the place and on whatever chair/stool available. The food is amazing, served in tapas... More
