I went there for a business meeting. The place is very authentic and picturesque. The food is great, so tasty! The staff was nice. The only thing less pleasant is that has a very small parking. Overall we liked very much.

Traditional food restaurant with a very nice environment. It has a summer terrace where you can dine in perfection. The kitchen is regionally inspired and it was here that were born the famous "Tripas aos molhos"!
