Huge portions (but one can order 1/2 portion, which is as big as a normal portion somewhere else) of tasty food, good wine and good prices. It took some time to have the food on the table but this is understandable, as the restaurant was...very crowded. Definitely, a place to recommend in Porto.More

Very good experience! Good food with a huge quantity per 1/2 dose, you never leave the place with empty belly. Very economical meal! Picanha and rosbife are good options

I have been to this place for a Sunday lunch in September. The place is a traditional restaurant just outside the center of Porto. Specialized in grilled meat and fish. Beyond the long wait once seated (about 25 minutes) it was a shame to see...a very large plate, 70 percent filled with baked potatoes and cabbage. The meat of the goat, on the other hand, was scarce and above all the parts of the little goat that had arrived were made up of eighty percent of bones to be gnawed and not very consistent. I know that goat meat is a meat with a lot of bones but the amount of meat that arrived was very little. And none of the pieces of meat on the plate were part of the thigh or shoulder or brisket. just bones to gnaw on. The house wine was good but I will hardly return to this place.More

We are staying in the Porto city hotel and we wanted to have a local restaurant instead of the more touristic places in the centre. Really, tourists should come up this way to have a dinner. The food grilled on coal is amazing, the place...is clean and the waiter on the first floor (Brasilia women) was really nice! We ordered some wine and a mix grill, the amounts are huge, wine is perfect.. We loved it!More

A little bit of a walk out of town, this is a really good churrasqueira. We had seafood, which was very good, and a well-suggested bottle of vinho verde. The menu is varied and everyone seemed to be enjoying the different dishes they were eating.

Checked on trip, local Portuguese restaurants. Bit of a lottery which to choose but our ticket came in. Simple but quality food, exceptionally cooked with very friendly service. As previously stated the portions huge and we had half portions. I love places that don’t try...to reinvent the wheel. They have a solid and good formula. Shame it was our last night. Totally recommend but go for half portions.More

We went here based on trip advisor reviews and that it was local to our hotel. When we arrived you have to go upstairs to the restaurant. Looks like they also accommodate take aways, dont be put off by this though. The climb up the...stairs is worth it. Lots of locals & families here, which we took to be a great sign. We ordered the fillet steak, it comes with handcut chips (essentially crisps) vegetables and rice. We had a hlaf bottle of red and 4 little bottles of sparkling water. The food was excellent, such great value for what we had, I would highly recommend it. the whole bill for 2 people was 32 euros. a bargain!More

We lived yards away this churrasqueira so it soon beckoned to us for lunch, as its sister establishment did for dinner. Being so popular and with meat being grilled to order it is a perfect example of what non-tourist Portugal does so well; hearty meals...of simple well cooked food with good vinhos da casa and usually at amazing value.I have in front of me a receipt for a meal for three people as follows: chicken, rice,chips, mixed salad, legumes, 2 iced teas, white wine, 3 coffees. Total bill- 17.75.More

We went for a late dinner here. The restaurant is on the 1st floor above a buffet. The food is transported to the first floor by a lift from below and the room (the restaurant has only one room) has its own waiter. The restaurant...is very small. The portions, on the other hand, are huuuge. I did not see a single person finish it during our visit. The food is very good and the waiter, though speaking very litle english, managed to communicate everything without any problem and with a smile on his face.More

Great place for take out! We stopped by for charcoal grilled chicken and ribs (rice, potatoes, salad included) on our way back to our apartment and had a feast with plenty of leftovers for under 20 euros!

Very nice local restaurant. I had had sirloin steak and my girlfriend had veal. Both 1/2 portions but we both couldn't finish the plates. House wine was very nice and only 4,5 eur for a bottle. Will visit again!
