Small, pleasant and unpretentious family-run place that attracts locals, working people and tourists. Tried the `Francesinha` for the first time - interesting variation on the `Croque Monsieur` - glad that I did. Staff are welcoming and speak good English. Prices reasonable, service good.

Tasty lunch sitting outside watching peacocks on castle wall. Quiche and salad very good as was toasted sandwich. Nicely away from castle crowds but equally not far, worth seeking out.

Love everything about this place. It's hidden away up a side street near the castle entrance but definitely worth hunting it down. The guys who own it are relaxed, friendly and run the place with easy-going efficiency. From the outside it looks like a bar/café...More
