“The Portuguese food ever”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

It is a family restaurant and gives a very nice home environment.
I love the meet specially the T-bone "Costeletao" It is really good and at a nice price.
Other tipical Portuguese such as the cod fish "Bacalhau" and also "tripas à moda Porto"
If you want to taste a litle of Portugal, I really recommend this restaurant.

“Nice place”
Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant, 15 minutes walking from the city centre, is small and cozy. As starter we ate shrimps and soup (the green one). As main dishes we had coldfish, salmon and octopus! All was good but the octopus was really special! The dessert also was very good, Made with cookies and mascarpone. All for less than 20 euros per person, wine included! During the week service consists of the owner and his wife in the kitchen, both very nice!

“cosy restaurant”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

We went there around 3 p.m. and we where the only people. Our host was super nice. We ordered tourist menu and daily menu which were both excellent. On top of that they gave us complimentary dessert on the house. It was the best dinner during our trip. Prices are more than reasonable.

“We were 2 nights in Porto and came here twice. Perfect Portuguese kitchen for a very good price. The portions were even to big f”
Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

We will come back the next time we're in Porto! The food was great and the service incredible. I can only suggest to make a reservation. We did this the second night and got a table with vieuw on the river Douro.
