Not only is the traditional Portuguese food wonderful but the owner and his staff are so friendly and welcoming! We had such a good experience we went back the following night and on our last night of our trip. The ham and the caldo verde are particularly good as are the chicken and the cod balls with rice and beans. We look forward to returning!!

We had a fabulous meal served by very friendly staff. The food is very reasonably priced and the ambience was just right. We were fortunate to strike up a conversation with other diners and the staff joined in too. Excellent, so much so we returned for lunch next day.

We went to eat here the first night we were in Porto, and we were so excited about the food and service that we went back for another 2 times! When we arrived late at Porto, left our luggage, we were hungry as a bear. We sat down, ordered and had all in like 10 minutes, what a blast at that moment! Never ever had an experience like this, what a fiesta! The drinks came after, bizar, but no problem at all for us... The food is pure and soooooo delicious, wow, no need to put salt and pepper on the table.
I can strongly recommend this restaurant, great food for no money and Norberto is a 5-star waiter!

Really enjoyed our meal here. I had the grilled rabbit which was extremely tasty; we had sardines to begin with - a classic, but for some reason they were in short supply when we visited and very few places had them. The wine was great - we had a Niepoort Rosé which was delicious and very reasonable. What made the meal, apart from the view, was the excellent service: friendly, helpful, knowledgeable. Hugely enjoyed our meal.
