You get the best food and service for no money. The wine is of cause tasting well. Perhaps you should order a tale before coming.

We ate at Ysconderijo three times and were never disappointed. Great food, service and atmosphere, plus a couple of tables outside for warmer evenings. To find it, walk up the main street (Avenida) from the square, and it's on the left, oposite The Avenida Restaurant (also great food and service).

Top class food , beautifully presented, with no pretentiousness. Calm and intimate ambience, and professional and unobtrusive staff. For the all round package great value. Best in Sao Bras and up there with the best anywhere. Well done to the young couple who run it- they deserve their success.

"The Hiding Place" or "Hideout" (at least, with an e on the front) and it is. We are local but after seeing its reputation on Tripadvisor, our first attempt to eat here resulted in us walking the length of the Avenida, twice, then going elsewhere. After emailing Dina we tried again and still couldn't find it until a local lady practically walked us to the door. For others, it is at the North end of the Avenida on the Left side as you go out of town and two doors up from a bank. It is right on the building line and not hidden in any way but has a narrow and unassuming frontage. Find Mama Mia's Pizzeria and the Avenida Restaurant on your Right, then cross the dual carriageway to find Ysconderijo. The business card reads "Avenida da liberdade nr. 75 r/c", if that helps.
Was it worth the affort? ABSOLUTELY. I'm not going to repeat all the plaudits. Prices are on a par with the other local eateries we use and the food is better than most, perhaps all. Even on 9th November it was almost full. In season booking is surely essential.
From memory, I think the Ysconderijo seats about 28 and would be ideal to book out for a special occasion with a party up to that number.
