“Great service and delicious food in a cosy restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2011

Angela and the staff made us very welcome. We got to taste some great food and wine and the staff were very accommodating. Highly recommend the Bacalhau (cod) and the Peito de Pato (duck breast) dishes!

“Delicious - one of the highlights of our stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2011

Beautiful surroundings, attentive service and the quality of the food made this a memorable dining experience. I ordered a seafood fish pie in saffron sauce - the pastry melted in my mouth - and my partner duck with dauphinaise potatoes, followed by orange souffle. All of our food and wine was of a really high standard and matched by the service.

“Tradicional portuguese food at the best place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2011

with a memorable vintage decoration and a excellent service, I recommend as starters eggs "ovos com farinheira", then cod and afterword the chocolate cake... well, I didn't tried the rest.

very good wine list at reasonable prices. It's far, but not to miss.

“Perfect! - Note that they have both a restaurant and bistro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2011

This gem might be hard to find but it's woth the effort! Please note that this place offers both restaurant (more sophisticated atmosphere, more expensive, to the left of the entry) and bistro (special offers, to the right of the entry), so you can even choose where you want to eat, both choices are very nice and the atmosphere in the restaurant with it's inbuilt shelves is very relaxing. The food was excellent, the wine too, very good value for money. The service was very attentive. We went there for lunch while travelling to the north of Portugal and would come back any time.
