The food was SO tasty, to be honest the place doesn’t look like from the outside but its a really great value for money. The staff was very nice and prices very correct. Such a surprise, a great mexican in the middle of Portugal ;)...We got a take away to have a lunch at the Arrabida beach - try that!More

Ok experience. Great for a quick bite. A lot of vegetarian options, but only one suitable vegan option. Entries served without proper cutlery or even plates. Main plate was served with the entries (?). Despite that, staff was very nice and the place is okay...(music too loud inside, difficult to have a conversation or even hear the waiters). There is no alcohol drinks. Good localization, food is reasonable and the price is great. @ Dinner Starters: Entradas Combo Vegan 👍 Mains: Bean-Chilli Vegan 👎 Drinks: ColaMore

We enjoyed a classic chicken burger meal and a faijtas menu. Both are excellent. Highly recommendable when you want something else as the traditional Portugese food. Very friendly staff and very clean!

After a recommendation we ate here last night. After a warm welcome we chose a table outside. The menu was in Portuguese but the waiter offered to translate so no problem with ordering. Food arrived quickly and was fresh and tasty. Great value for money.

We visited Picante during a day trip to Setubal, just seemed interesting while passing by. We tried fajitas, and they were really goood! Hard to find good Mexican food here in Portugal. Also all respect to staff: a guy and girls who served us. They...were so kind and focused on taking our order correctly, with all needed questions.
