The reviews about the queues are true. I can't think why as I've had better food for less in Porto.
I've been eating Cod and Chips for 60 years so was interested in the House Special Bacalhoa, preceded by Vegetable Soup.
The Vegetable Soup was tasty and hot.
The Cod defied belief.
It was wasn't very hot. The old chips were floating in cooking oil. I've had better batter from a frozen packet before it's cooked. The fish was tough and rubbery and tasted of burnt plastic. The kitchen staff thought this was fine.
As a substitute I asked for a salad. I have no idea what this tasted like because it was swamped in salt. After one mouthful I could feel my blood pressure rising.
I only paid because the beer and soup were OK and they had made some effort, also being English I don't like a fuss.
The night before I ate nearby and paid three times as much but got ten times the value :- soup, excellent steak, wine, postre and coffee in elegant surroundings.
"Little Gem" my foot!
