Had a bad experience her the last time we visited but, we are fair people and we know its not easy to get things right all of the time so, we went back, what a mistake! The starter was fine, the main course became a problem, they gave me the wrong meal (same as last time) and my wife ordered Salmon fillet, when it came it was totally uncooked, when we complained the waitress said abruptly so now some people want it well done? Well i am sorry but, we have never been offered rare,medium or well done options for fish before! Steak yes, fish no.
Eventually the owner came accross, grumpy old ... He said eventually that there would be no charge, we actually paid for the cuvert,starter and wine as there was nothing wrong with those, like I said we are fair people and it really anoys us when people treat us with disrespect as they did that night, it was like we are privileged to be in there. Never again!

This place is located in the same street of Il Patio and offers a similar service. We sat on the pavement and ordered vinho verde, chicken with (greasy) mushroom sauce and a “traditional” steak, served with fried egg and a side of salad. Then we had a slice of (industrial made) dessert and one “aguardente”. The quality was not spectacular but the price considerably lower than their neighbour, for a total of 44 Euro. It would have been good value for money, unfortunately it took half hour to sort out the bill, as the first time it was wrong and then it seemed as if nobody was able to understand English. I tried my broken Portuguese, but that did not work, either. Can take it or leave it.
