The place is well hidden, but beautiful things to see around. Good to know that it closes at 2:30 pm and reopens at 06:00 pm! It’s pretty packed in early evenings. Chicken pork piri is nice and the chips are crunchy and well seasoned. Nice...More

Incredible, the food is amazing, the value for money ridiculous. It's tiny, with only 2 covers, so either queue and wait to get a table or grab a takeaway. But definitely, do not miss it.

For eat in, you have to come earlier or be patient because they have only two small tables and two chairs for each. On the other hand the food and staff are amazing! I recommend the rice and the chilli sauce so delicious!!

This is a hidden gem! Loving this place. Lady manager of the place was super kind and generous with her portion. Although the shop only has two tables, she was kind enough to make sure we are comfortably seated. The rice took longer and she...More

Principe Real
From the splendid garden and its cafe-kiosk to its
restaurants, Príncipe Real is more than worthy of a
visit and it won't let you down: its attractions
include "Pavilhão Chinês" (one of the more eccentric
interior designs you'll ever see), museums and a
fantastic botanical garden. It's also a commercial
neighborhood, and you can visit a renovated Palace,
home of the Embaixada (embassy) trendy shopping center
