Very quiet in the restaurant and so there wasn't much atmosphere, proprietor was not the talking type. The chicken was delicious no getting away from that but the salad which is normally put on the plate but was served separately was certainly not worth 4.50 euros. We were only offered chips no other choice was mentioned, Saving grace was that... More

This year 8 of us visited, all having... More

Fried little squid again plenty of them chose salad and potato. My friends first choice of fish wasn't available and the alternative one was a big fish grilled on the barbeque. Excellent

Good honest home cooked food all at an excellent price. The squid was amazing and the chicken cooked on the BBQ grill was great.

If you want simply prepared and deliciously honest food, with very reasonable prices and don't mind if the somewhat uncommunicative (yet NOT unfriendly) owner is distracted by football (a common malady in Portugal) and The Price is Right while simultaneously feeding his family and friends - well come here!! It's awesome. We wined, dined and laughed our way through a... More

Small very local restaurant offering a wide variety of simple, rustic, local dishes. The prato do dia was pork with white beans and octopus with rice - both of which were pretty good. Total bill including couvert and a half bottle of wine, around €30.
