Very friendly owner with passion at his own food. They do not have English menu but the owner can introduce the food to you. The price is not the cheapest but worth every penny as most food is tricky to prepare. You can see a...More

It's a magic place! A cosy, nice restaurant where you can try traditional Portuguese food for all night long (opened from 21:00 until 5:30/6:00 except Sunday/Monday night). Delicious Francesihna with a perfect sauce (Carolina's top secret recipe), great local dishes and Paulo's magic chocolate cake...More

Very local, mom-and-pop feel to it. I ordered the tripe and it was enough to feed two hungry men. First time trying tripe and possibly my last. Even though I wasn't the biggest fan, it was well seasoned and hardy. The tripe gets 3/5 but...More

This is the place. Late night dinner or a late night snack, this is the place to come. Ask for anything from the menu, chances are you'll love it. The place is cozy and the food is "homemade like". Superb!
