I have to say the appetizer primarily the cheese and tuna pate is very nice that is why i give stars. Also the service given by IGOR is very good, he let me sit in big table although the restaurant is full and i am alone. He help me also with wifi problem. There are two things that make this...

This is a pleasant restaurant near to the main square. My wife and I had rather contrasting fortunes - her sea bass was excellent whereas my steak wasn't that good. Perhaps I was just unlucky as others on here rate it very highly.

We dined at this restaurant in Ribeira area on the evening of August 15. Perhaps for this reason we had to wait almost an hour (had not booked) to be seated. Anyway all good, better than the standard prices and flows of other tourist restaurants. As a starter of tuna pate, not to mention the pie on the house, to... More

To choose a restaurant in Ribeira I looked at Trip Advisor which said Postigo do Carvão is a 4-star. I totally disagree. Despite the ambient is nice, noisy like a canteen, the food was well below average. We started with a chouriço that seemed to have been re-baked for the fourth time, dry and very hard. We asked to be... More

Had one course lunch ,cod with potatoes huge portion , very tasty and authentic compared to all the tourist eateries near by . Lovely old style restaurant and good waitering staff. One complaint they put bread and olives down without asking first so assumed they would be complimentary until the bill came .
