Great food, served in large quantities. You can order one for two, easily. Very good service, not too expensive (specially if you share), all the environment of a fancy restaurant.

The service done by Mr. Lopes is perfect, but the food came cold and the cost/benefit compared to other places at Portugal is low.

Food was terrible, cold and tasted like yesterdays leftovers heated up. and over priced. Even the olives are bad. Left hungry and broke.

Very bad. Don't eat here. The food is worst than the Gordon Ramsey programs that he goes to those horrible restaurants...

Really good selection, and covering the main regional and seasonal items you would expect. Huge restaurant, with typical decor and setting. Our waitress wasn't the fastest, nor the sharpest tool in the shed - we had to repeat our son's very plain order several times to ensure she got it, but when the food came, it was well worth it.
