Great atmosphere is created by the restaurant waiter Ugo in this small, homely and very busy restaurant with traditional Portuguese food. The food is delicious and meal sizes extremely generous and service comes with a smile and humour. This unpretentious restaurant gets very busy and you will be lucky to get a seat.

Food is delicious and great for the money you pay! We had fish and got a surprise, it was a perfect dinner! Try the desserts, definitely worth it! We'll go there again the... More

Unfortunately I can't give any opinion about the food. I was travelling alone and went to this restaurant (recommendation of some friends). I asked for a table and they answered me: if you're alone we can't give to you a table. I also need to add that there were only 2 people waiting outside and it was during the week..

Then a table becomes available but the waiter gives it to another couple, pretending they came earlier. Sure, I say, whatever. The waiter gives us a menu and tells us to wait 10... More

Very small place, looks like my mother's kitchen, they only have 9 or 10 tables, probably always looks busy and crowded, but that's the charm of it. Great food, try the shrimps (as a starter, a huge starter by the way), I don't know how they make that sauce but it's fantastic. The fish was great too. Very big plates,... More

This is a really cosy little restaurant, so make sure to come early or call ahead. The staff is super-friendly, giving the place a family atmosphere. The food was great and plentiful.
