It is not cheap, but dinning out in Brazil in restaurants with some nice atmosphere is usually costly, so let's see what makes this place outstanding. My wife and I love codfish in the way Portuguese prepare it - my favorite one is the cod roast in the live coal with baked potatoes (Bacalhao na brasa com batatas ao murro). They really prepare it well, with plenty of good quality olive oil, a lot of garlic and excellent side potatoes (which are "ao murro", i.e. "punched" to absorb better the salt and oil). We tried other codfish dishes in this place and they were really excellent. We haven't tried other dishes in the menu, but we are glad to see there interesting representatives of the good traditional Portuguese cuisine (like rabbit). They have a good selection of wines (even at affordable prices) and the Portuguese deserts are (again) outstanding (do not leave the place without trying them before the final espresso - and then you will have the complete Portuguese experience).
The atmosphere is very nice: it is a charming old building well renovated (pretty and well ventilated, without smell of mildew) with a view to a green square of the old quarters in downtown. And finally the members of the staff are very polite and glad to help with any information you need.
