This was my favorite restaurant in Portugal. There are only six table (4 seats per table) and the menu usually consists of 4 different types of meat with different sides. The whole place is a hoot. From the boar heads on the wall with sunglasses, the upside down statues and the notes all over the walls. There is only one waiter, who seats, serves, and sets the table. He is eccentric to say the least but it adds to the experience. Don't let him think he doesn't speak English, he does. He has fun teasing and may seem gruff at first but he is very nice.
It opens at 7:30 and there is always a line of locals as well as tourists. So, get there early. I was also by myself. I got there late, about 8:30 and was told that the wait would be long. However, I still was sat 15 minutes later and I think he was just trying to have fun with my total ignorance of what to do about the fact that I didn't speak English, everyone around me was speaking Portuguese, and the menu was in Portuguese. However, after having fun with me trying to read the menu and such, he finally started speaking in perfect English. The food was great and the portions were huge! It is much better if you can go with a group but if you can't, go anyway. I had the goat stew and the vegetables and it was great. He also doesn't make you rush and let me try and get it all down before I left. Needless to say, bring your appetite.
