I have eaten here many times in recent years. It is a modest restaurant serving traditional food in substantial portions at very modest prices,. The cabrito (goat, not lamb as one of your reviewers thought) is particularly succulent. House wine is very cheap and quite drinkable.

Went for dinner, had beef steak which was about half a cow but not great, very difficult to chew, more like rubber than meat, kids had a seafood dish which was ok but nothing to rave about, wouldn't go back, many much better places to go although the staff friendly enough

The food here is more than decent and, since portions are very large, you only need to order a few to share. The staff were very friendly. Overall, I'd recommend this place.

Beware of large quantities ! Family run business, helpful friendly staff. Simple food well cooked. We love the hake and chips.

The food here was terrible. I had fish and potatoes and my friend had chicken and chips. Both were inedible. Over done and obviously reheated in a microwave. I hardly ever give really bad reviews but in this case I have made an exception because I want to warn people. The restaurant looks traditional but the food is far from... More

We visited this restaurant twice for dinner on our four day visit to this gorgeous little town. We enjoyed all the food especially the seafood rice and the kids loved the roasted/barbecued chicken with rice, chips and salad. Portions are very generous, prices are reasonable and service is very attentive here. Will definitely return in the future.

We had mid-day meal on a Saturday. I ordered their specialty, Cabrito, lamb with rice and potato fries (according to a trusted guidebook). I thought the lamb was more like mutton, greasy and overcooked. My wife had the cheese omelet with fries. The omelet was overdone for our taste (very brown on the exterior). The salad verde was good. The... More

We had an excellent value lunch here. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is located in a quiet little pedestrianized square behind the medieval prison tower. The food is typically Portuguese and home cooked and portions are enormous. One portion is enough for two people. We shared a main course salad and baked sardines, which were delicious.... More
