We dined here this week and thoroughly enjoyed it. Views are just great, food very good, and service very attentive. Try the Ganbas al Ajillo, really good. Ah, and a Vino Verde de Minha, chilled!

We enjoyed our wonderful lunch so much here today on the banks of the river that we went back for dinner too. Nice, lively environment and excellent food. You must try the Portuguese sausage in wine, delicious!

First suggestion ... you will wait long time to order on nice terase ... second ... you will wait long time to get your drinks on your table and will be added that filling that waiter really doesn't care a lot about his job ......More

Stopped for lunch here after a morning tour. Solid food with a great view along the river. Lots of tables outside that are covered and shaded. My sister and I ordered the caprese salad, garlic shrimp, and portuguese steak, and all were very good. Would...More
