“Fantastic steaks, good curries”
Reviewed November 6, 2010

This was one of the better meals that we had in Portugal, which I guess is sad, given that it is Brazilian food, technically. I had a curry with shrimp - it was very good. My mother had the steak, which was amazing - served on a hot stone and very tender. It came with several sauces and sides - all were very good. We all were envious of the other diners who had gotten the 'all you can eat' meat on a stick - they all looked amazing.

Like other Portuguese restaurants, the ambience is a bit weird. They all have TVs, even in a very nice place like this one. And there is no background music, which means, if there are only a few people eating, it is a bit awkward.

Good service, great food - highly recommend.
