There were ten of us on a Saturday night and the place was full and we had no reservations. They said they would work us in and directed us to the stand-up bar. They were good to their word and got us in within 30 minutes and the bar scene was really quite fun. The bartender made us feel welcome. Their specialty is fresh seafood and my cod dish was good but not great. However, the friendliness and the high energy of the place was great fun.

Hoping for something a bit special, we we're let down by the off- handed attitude of the serving staff. Having experienced excellent service and food elsewhere in this fine city, we felt let down in this establishment. The food was good and the restaurant was busy, yet for us, the service was not the same friendly attention we had come to expect. We have not been dining out in style, by any means - indeed, this place was the most expensive so far.

We ate here one night but went for meat/carne dishes as the seafood dishes were on the pricey side. Most people there seemed to be enjoying the seafood though.

Had to wait for a table, but it was a Sunday night when many restaurants aren’t open. We went for pork dishes and mine was enjoyable but my wife wasn’t crazy about hers, although it was edible. But there isn't a good rating so rather than give it an average, I've upgraded it to a very good based on the faces of the people enjoying their seafood.

Used by locals, this is an unpretentious restaurant where you can choose your lobster from a tank. We dined here twice both times selecting local dishes. Service is excellent and menu is not expensive for a city.

This restaurant was only as short distance from our hotel after a long day we decided to give it a go and we were glad we did.

Whilst the interior seems very plain with very simple tables, the staff were very friendly and were excellent at recommending dishes. Yes we received the couverts as well but you can send them back unopened without charge.

My wife ordered the pork with clams whilst my daughter had the pork and potatoes dish. I tried the local bacalhau a bras - a salted cod dish cooked with shredded potato and onions and bound together like an omelette with egg. All were very good and the helpings were so big that none of us finished our platefuls. Couple this with a nice bottle of Portugese wine for 11 euros and a good evening was had by all.

It seems to get mixed reviews here but I can thoroughly recommend it.
