We chanced upon this tiny restaurant while looking for a lunchtime location. I had sea bream baked in a salt crust and my husband had liver cooked in a tomato sauce. Both were simple and delicious. Highly recommend.

Like most people, we found this restaurant on TA, and that was last year already. Since we couldn't get a table then and since we were returning to Porto this summer, I booked a table over a month in advance. It's a very small place...More

My family had a marvelous time having lunch there, the gambas, the calamar, the turbot cooked in salt at the table, the lamb all were deliciously prepared. We had to wait as it is small and full. People after 1 pm were still waiting, Chinese,...More

If I recall, they take reservations in person after 13:00. We were fortunate to arrive without a reservation and were seated, however many other parties were turned away. Definitely worth the effort-highly recommend.
