Cantinho do Emigrante- so wonderful! It's a tiny, rather ordinary place, but it delivered extraordinary food and service. I have tons of food allergies (eggs, dairy, tree nuts) and I was a bit worried about the language barrier. However, the wonderful owner totally understood what...More

Amazing local restaurant tucked away serving excellent food. I had the pork with beans and my wife had the BBQ chicken which is cooked on charcoal almost next to your table. The home made flan was delicious. Great service. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Just had the barbecued frango for the third time this week, simply cannot be beaten! This basic but scrupulously clean cafe is so busy (mostly with locals) so get here early for a table. No frills just great food at good prices.

I love this little restaurant. I had the Octopus & Rice Stew, totally delicious. The bread, olives & pate is a good accompaniment. All washed down with good cheap wine. Marvellous!
