The waiter was really kind, I asked the bacalhau velhos tempos. Generally this kind of fish is serve with a lot of oil, and it actually was. The chips were home made :). Nice place for dinner with family or romantic dinner. Beautiful space.

Everything was delicious. We ordered octopus, rice with duck, Carmelita's cod and cheesecake for 4 people, and just half portion of each was enough for all of us! Best place to eat in our trip to Portugal!

Very good topical Portuguese food. Good service. Only downside is the actual size of the establishment which on the other hand provides a cozy environment

We asked the very nice waitress for recommendations. She suggested the fried bacalhau and the duck rice. The bacalhau was great but the duck rice was fantastic. Desserts are delicious too!! And the atmosphere is beautiful and very Iberian.

How lovely is Velhos Tempos. A very good fish. Cold green wine in a hot summer. The staff makes difference.
