This is just the way You want a Portuguese cervejaria. Families and locals, servants swirling around like butterflies, a little bit noisy and good service.A menu in english was helpful as most servants does not speak english. I had a perfect sirloin steak and a good red wine recommended by the staff and still not very expensive.

This is a very typical local portuguese restaurant - the decor, the food, the service, and the majority of the clientele are very portuguese (although given its location next to some big hotels, there were also quite a few tourists).

The food is simple portuguese fayre (my cod and potatoes came swimming in butter, as they should be!), so is authentic without being special. However it is also extremely cheap and very well located (especially if you are staying in the SANA hotel nearby).

Overall I would recommend this to anybody who wants a proper no-frills portuguese dinner, without paying silly tourist rates. I would definitely eat here again.

I like to explore the streets around the hotels where I stay for business. Behind Sana Hotel in Lisbon there are many restaurants if you take the streets parallel to the Avenida de la Libertad on the left going to the river. There are many local restaurants and the menus are quite similar but they are in general worth it if all you want is a good dinner.

Cacho Dourado is just behind Sana and it is a good choice. I typically go for the grilled fish with vegetables but the menu selection is quite reasonable if you want other foods. The restaurant is well patronized by locals which is always a good sign.

Service is efficient. Pleasant enough and they get the job done. They may appear a bit rushed at times but again this is not a 5 star restaurant with the sommelier fanning over you. I was happy with the service.

Atmosphere is basic of course. Clean and bright but of course a large room with tables, and a TV with soccer/football. You can see the kitchen as well.

Pleasant and solid food at a reasonable price

Had two meals at this Bar/Restaurant and both were great experiences. Choice is amazing and The Staff were great so cannot understand the review here that says staff were rude! Our waiter had worked at Ponty's in Convent Garden for 4 years and was a delight. Food excellent, beer good and excellent wine and the price was ridiculous cheap for a Capital City in Europe.

Try The Seafood or The Meat and you will not be disappointed. Salt cod an acquired taste that we did not have but you have to at least try it!

This place is a bar that serves food, the service is not good, and we just went there because everything was closed Sunday night.
