Good option to eat familiar and good dishes. Prices are very competitive. It is possible eat a soup with a main dish and dessert only for 6'5€. You can choose between meat or fish dishes. Fantastic good value quality. The restaurant is simple and it is situated in a avenue close to Ribeira area. I repeated many times.

The first time we went in they were playing Pink Floyds "Dark Side of the Moon", it is that sort of place. The home cooked food is simple and delicious and VERY CHEAP! As is the wine.

You may have fine lunch after your city tour in this family owned house from 5 EUR. Homemade meals (sardines or cod fish) are highly recommended. Fast service and excellent coffee will be a pleasant addition to the wonderful prices

Avoid eating in the tourist restaurants by the river and walk two block up the hill to this family run restaurant. This is the place where the locals eat - chap at the street stalls by the river recommended us this restaurant as a place where he always goes to eat, so we gave it a try. This is not... More

We went to this family restaurant because of the locals we saw having lunch inside. We ask for the daily menu, for 5 euros you've got a soup, a main dish of fish or meat, bread and coffee, all included without any extra fees. All the food was home-made, the cod was amazing, the furniture and silverware a bit old,... More
