Tricky to find, book a table as very busy on all nights but worth the visit. Great & friendly service in a traditional setting. Good & tasty food, cheap sangria, extensive menu. Very good value.

We visited this Restaurant 4 times in one week. It was really amazing. All the things we tasted was very tasty. The business is made by Josef and Marilia and her Son. Extremely friendly and professional. Hopefully we come back sometime.

The dress code was casual, they were locals just out for dinner. I 'm sure you can order gluten free, meat and vegetables. Get a card translated in Portuguese to explain your needs.
