It's a normal service, but for the cost it's very good becase chicken is really good for the price including drinks. just a local/typical restaurant where you can enjoy a good meal for grat price in a central place next to aliados

The best grilled chicken I have eaten, large portions served with crispy french fries, large mixed salad, a litre jug of ice cold vinho verde da casa - and all served by friendly helpful waiters. My friends and I ate there four times during our stay (we enjoyed our first meal there so much, and it was very reasonably priced,... More

This restaurant has been running for decades. It's cheap, the food is great. It's very Portuguese. Nandos has tried to export this type of food to the UK, but this is the real deal. From the outside we thought it was just a takeaway place because so many locals were waiting at the counter and coming out with bags of... More

Before came to this restaurant I do not really enjoy Portuguese food but this restaurant changed me!!! Came here because of the review from trip advisor. Judging from the outside of the restaurant is looks not convincing to go inside then we still try.. During lunch time the restaurant is really full, luckily we still can get a table for... More

Visited here for lunch. Amazing food and value. Paid 18 euro for a whole BBQ chicken with French fries and delicious salad, a bottle of wine and bread. Seldom have had value like it and would highly recommend. Authentic, pleasant and real Portugese. The grilled fish looked beautiful. Mainly used by locals so you know it's the real thing. Check...

If you want to experience real Portuguese cousin with real Portuguese people this is the place. Do not expect high cuisine - it is down to earth! Soup verde for a starter and chicken for a main course + botle of vino verde = Great experience :)

Came upon this place by chance but see that others have reviewed favorably. Not much to draw you in from the outside except the chicken on the rotisserie in the window. But do go in - good honest fare and very cheap. Chicken and fries delicious.

Put all your preconceptions about restaurants aside and step into a world of strip lighting, TV's showing football and customers sitting cheek to jowl on formica table tops. Doesn't sound like fun? The food will change your mind! In a not particularly solubrious part of Porto sits a simple grilled chicken restaurant. Me and the other half started with delicious... More

Porto is my city so I heard about this restaurant before. It's just good good good. A typical restaurant in Porto, famous for its chicken. I had the chicken with fries, a spunch of hot sauce (piri piri) all over it and the cheap and gorgeous house wine. Simple, cheap and gorgeous.
