A nice menu with good view and friendly staff. It's a very busy restaurant though. Staff worked hard to serve people quickly and did so well given the number of people they had to serve.

The views are lovely but that is the best thing about this restaurant. The cod fish cake starter was just alright, but the duck rice main was awful!! It was a bowl of dry rice, with very dry duck shavings at best, topped with congealed...More

To stand (if only for a brief moment) at the midway point of the Ponte Luís I Bridge and glance down into the river-hewn valley below is a beautiful thing. To the lucky traveller, a procession of curious details announce themselves. Amongst the largest: the...More

No need. Just pop in. During busy times like lunch and dinner this place is easily fully booked. I strongly suggest to come in a bit early. All the very best! 😊
