we always use a combination of Tripadvisor, Lonely Planet and our intuition to choose a place to eat, and this time both forums pointed in the same direction, a mere 50m from the hotel (Ibis). We had Bacalhau Carmelita en rice duck, and it was just what we hoped it would be: delicious. On top of that, the person who... More

The food was very well prepared and tasty, atmosphere was very pleasant. Portions were very generous. The staff was very helpful: the menu was available in English, and they were very helpful in translating it to French for a couple sitting a table down. Also a big plus: the coffee was very good.

The waitress was very patient with us since we had to ask a lot about the menu. I had some real great grilled meat, the others had fish and pulpo. The wine was good, the prices are absolutely ok.

We went on the recommendation of the owner of the hotel we were staying at and we weren't disappointed. We had the bread and the salad to start and then shared a mixed meat grill. No bones, excellent. The sobremesas were very good as well as are the measures of wine by the glass! At least it wasn't far to... More

Me and my partner went there to have dinner and it was the best restaurant during our two weeks trip in Portugal. We ate a lot for a very good Price and everything was delicious, specially bacalhao as natas. By far, the best bacalhao we ate in this great country! Highly recommended

We enjoyed the fried bacalhau with fried potato slices and the rice with duck. Both were fantastic. The bacalhau was cooked to... More
