What a find! Small restaurant in the 'back' streets, but a great place. People were lovely, although didn't speak much english at all. Menu is hand written and quite basic. I had the grilled fish which was delicious. Amazing value, good portions and tasty food. Would definitely recommend.

The food is simple but excellent. They really do not speak any foreign languages very well... and that is the reason why this place is so typical and special. Excellent value!

An excellent venue. Plentiful tasty traditional dishes at a very reasonable price. We loved the family atmosphere and prompt service. A real find just off the Main Street.

I have visited this small family restaurant, first is 2014, then is 2016. The business lunch is marvelous cheap! Just only $5 urea, include soup, bread, meat, desert or fruit, and cafe! It's transitional Portugal family food, and the hosts are very kindly. 波爾圖聖本篤車站巷弄內的小館子,由一對老夫婦經營的葡式家常料理,商業午餐超級划算,包括湯、麵包、主食(肉或鱈魚)、甜點或水果、咖啡,價格不到5歐!相當便宜,餐點份量不少,且很有葡萄牙媽媽家常菜的味道,相當推薦!

We,ve just had a mid day meal here. There were some French tourists, and Portuguese in the small restaurant. The main server, a friendly man, speaks a little French. My husband and I thought this was excellent value for the money, and we enjoyed the fact the menu is written on a piece of paper place mat, as was the... More

Where can you get a 3 course meal, home made, inside 10 mins, for just 5 euro? With Mum doing the magic in the kitchen, & Dad working the floor, you can just sit back & enjoy. I had soup, 2 ,lovely pieces of fish n' veg, & strawberrys for desert. Brillant! !

Visited this restaurant the other night having walked past and thought iit looked interesting. Its a 2 man/woman show, with the man frantically serving people and the lady knocking out great food from a tiny kitchen. Limited, authentic Portuguese menu with the best sardines we have possibly ever had. The set menu was only €5 per person and it came... More

The have soup as starter and then several different main courses (4-5). We were three and we all chose carapao, it was good. For the soup, main course, wine, water and dessert we payed a... More

Accidentally we found this "Hole in the Wall" which attracted us due to its simplicity. The home cooked 3 course "prata do dio" was excellent at a VERY low cost. And the service was quick and perfect. We had to go back the day after. If or when we will be back in Porto, Novo Mondo will be our priority... More

The local is little and pretty, and remembers everybody's kitchen. You feel at home. There is not much choice (you can choose among 5 "plato do dias"), but the quality is high and the price really affordable (the lowest paid in 7 days between porto and lisbon, for one of the best meals we had). The staff, that is like... More
