Taverna Doce is a great place to have snacks, coffee, etc. and take away freat Portuguese pastries. However, beware of fraudelent schemes played by the employees when paying. The cashier usually tells you a different amount that is actually due (in my case last week I owed 1,070 mts and she told 1,700 mts). Heard many stories before, so I... More

First visit to this restaurant... The buffet variety was amazing! Something for everyone (we had one person with a serious seafood allergy and another person a part-vegan... Meals, service, ambience and prices... awfully good combination!

I had a simple omelet for lunch here. Service was competent, food was good. The after-lunch coffee, however, was really good! They also had a large assortment of pastries that I did not try.

I ended up here by accident. The restaurant was not open for service yet, but i had a drink while waiting. The decore is absolutely fantastic, and so are the dishes. The snack platter is very unique and tempting. For dinner i had a steak Mozambique with egg. It was out of this world.

If you are looking for good portuguese food this is one place to go. However this restaurant has become so popular that some dishes are overpriced and some of the staff can be a little arrogant. Visited the resturant (first night we arrived) and after some time and realized this especially after our second visit.
