Quite close to the tram museum, on the tram line where the main road loops out over the river. On two floors, only saw ground floor which had 16 covers. The owner, and only waiter, was jovial and helpful. We had starters and a huge shared main of fish and prawns in a cheese sauce with large prawns, complete with their arms and legs, on top which was great family style stuff. Good wine selection. Loved it and the prices too.

We were here last night for dinner without a reservation and it is good honest seafood as described previously. we had a fun and energetic waiter and he provided us with wine info on Portuguese wine (which we had no idea about) and a fabulous bottle of red ( it was a table red. But tasted more like a cab/merlot style) with our meal for a most reasonable price. Overall a great dining experience!

The restaurant staff was very helpful and friendly. I ordered seafood rice which was only for two people serving. The staff was nice to suggest one portion having in the restaurant and the remaining would help me to pack it home so that nothing would be wasted. Smiles are always on their faces. Efficient service was another spotlight of this restaurant. The seafood rice was delicious, not too salty, seafood was fresh. Good experience I had enjoyed here!

We had a very good meal, our introduction to Portuguese cuisine at Papavinhos. The grilled octopus was perhaps the best we found. Service was warm and helpful. Very fairly priced and great value.

We were lucky enough to get a table! Excellent food and wine, we had seabass, dorade and cod. Mussels and shrimps as starters. Chocolate mousse for dessert! The staff is very nice with a great sense of humour! Prices are very reasonable! An amazing restaurant, not easy to find. It was a feeling of being at a good friend's home! Thank you!!
