Reviewed November 17, 2019

We came here five days in a row for lunch as a part of a conference I was participating in. Each day the food seemed to get worse. Soggy tasteless potatoes, a very boring salad buffet. The bread on the table was not homemade but...the worst part were the vegetarian main courses. They were absolutely disgusting, with strange sauces and the pasta was always overcooked. I cannot believe people actually pay to eat here, it is shocking. I am very thankful we did not have to pay. I usually just picked at the salad. The only positive thing was the staff, they were very nice. However, this does not make up for the disgusting food served.More

Just had an excellent lunch here before leaving for the airport. I had caprese salad and sea bass, while my husband had garlic mushrooms and steak. Both meals were very good value for money and the rose house wine was lovely. Service was very friendly...and efficient, despite them being really busy. Many people had the buffet option which looked amazing value.More

I found this while wandering around. The place looked traditional and not trendy, which was appealing. I Had an excellent octopus salad and an order of large sauteed mushrooms. The food they were bringing to other tables and the buffet looked good, too. The service...was friendly and I will go there again. Excellent value as well.More

Literally the best fish I ever had, and one of the best vines, Vinho da casa. Prices decent, atmosphere and the food, oh the food. Apsolutely magnificent.

Plenty of fresh salad materials on the buffet along with beef, fish, potatoes, and a quiche choice. The soup was also very good. The reasonable price included water, coffee, desserts, and bread and butter.

This place is be no means a good restaurant or does it serve any food similar to Porto standards. Never took the time before to write a review but we where just so blatantly deceived by what we think are the owners that needed to...post this. For what we ate (group over 10) and the quality we definitively overpaid.More

First time we went, we opted for a la carte, bit pricey but food was good. After that, went back for the buffet. You can get a good filling buffet lunch for €10 per person. Nice food. Will definitely go back.

Had the Lunch Time Buffet (€12). Very poor and Very Overpriced. Food was satisfactory at best, staff were unfriendly. If your looking for a decent meal avoid this place.

For just 8 euros you can eat as much as you want. The pork was very good and the cakes were great desserts.
