Description: This neighborhood restaurant is not in a great area but it is charming and cooks tremendous Portugese food. We ate there 3 out of 5 nights in Lisbon. IMPORTANT: They have two menus--one in Portugese and one in English. All of the very traditional dishes are on the Portugese menu and not listed on the English menu for some reason. We had bachau lau (salted cod baked in olive oil and garlic--yummy!), grilled pork wrapped in bacon and grilled with green pepper (fantastic!), grilled salmon and grilled black pig. Look around at what the Portugese are ordering and just point and say that's what you want--the wait staff speaks fairly good English. Almost everyone was Portugese from that neighborhood so we felt it was very authentic. Prices ran about 7-12 euros per person for the main course and it came with a trip to the salad bar included in the price.

We arrived there by the advice we had read here.
We found the place really interesting for how does it work, but service is not their best attitude.
After 22 pm the don't accept customers, but they add us.

That's the only thing doesn't work.
The meat was really good, the price is low and the wine also is not expensive.
We decided to come there twice the next day.

Really good place.

Steak lovers, this place is a perfect match for us eternal carnivores.
Beautiful charcoal grilled meat, light seasoning that enhances the natural flavour of the chosen cut.
A little on the fresh side, but soooo soooo tasty.

Had the rump and came away extremely satisfied.

Will be back when next in Lisbon and feel like meat.

Grrrr...enjoy carnivores

Found this on trip advisor as the nearest local restaurant. Wanted something that our 3 chidren would like as well (12,13,16). We arrived at 7 and were 1st in, lots of tales reserved, always a good sign. Not long after more people followed. Waiters spoke good english and made us really welcome. Portions are HUGE, salad bar is free but you don't need to get too much. Soon after the place was full - this was Monday evening !! Only down side was I had to go up,the road to the cash point to draw out euros as they only accept Portuguese cards. We left at 9 and people were queuing outside , on Monday !! - Great find. No veggies please.

Been here a couple of times and never once been disappointed. Lovely fresh meat and good wine service. Ask for the posta mirandesa and the waiter will recommend you a great wine for sure. Just one advice, when asking for dessert don't go for the best chocolat cake but for the other one.
