This restaurant is very cool if you seat outside. The tables are literally on the street and you can order and eat on these tables from 2 different restaurants! Pronto de encontro( Italian & Portuguese food) and from the creperie next door! Same owner :)

variety of meat, chicken, and seafood. price is rather expensive for backpackers, but it's worth the money. watch out for cats around, particularly when you pick outdoor seats. they also serve light meals like pancakes/waffles and beer. the restaurant has choices of desserts with local taste

The food here is very good with lots of local options. The atmosphere is also very nice, being on the main street in the town. Try the moquecas!
