I think my reviews may be getting a boring. We chose restaurants in Portugal over the past few weeks based on Trip Advisor ratings and were never disappointed. The food in this country has been outstanding. This tiny 6-table place is no exception. In fact,...More

Very typical great Portuguese Restaurant. You are getting a lot of traditional food and atmosphere here. All for a good fair price. Still like a secret spot.

Restaurant opens at 7.30, so be there at 7.15 or be prepared to wait a whole shift (this is what the locals do). We loved the whole experience, and the food was really good. I got the feeling that it is good to prepare already...More

Both the cheapest and best meal in our trip to Portugal. We only spent 27 for two and both ate a lot. Mainly for meat eaters, but my gf had a delicious octopus and potatoes dish. Might not be the main dish, but the chocolate...More

It's difficult to find located down a small side street, people start queuing early as there are limited tables inside (it's very small inside so if you're claustrophobic I wouldn't recommend it). We were the last pair to get a table from the first group...More

The place is quite small. We arrived at 7pm and there was 4 people in front of us. They open at 7:30 pm. Tables are quite small and there is no chairs to sit but instead stools. It seams there isn't many menus available, so,...More
