Excellent food and attentive service. This was a memorable meal of very good Portuguese food. The kid goat may sound adventurous but if you like lamb it it as god or better. I will definitely return here on my next visit to Porto.More

The food is genuine portuges and realle good. The service is both kind and quick. You can tell its ok because of the many locals who eat their lunch here. And the decoration in the restaurant is also genuine from Portugal

Thanks for the comment about your experience here in our restaurant. When referring to the "old" comment, yes it is really old, after all we have this decoration (still original), since 1931, and the opening year of this restaurant is 1927. We preserve our past...More

An experience to remember. Welcoming staff, excellent ambience and very good food. We tried Piri Piri prawns and Faldo verde - also delicious fish. Would highly recommend.

I am surprised there are a number of negative reviews here. We were impressed on our first visit, and returning to Porto a week later it was an obvious choice for a return visit, which confirmed my 5 rating. The restaurant, opened in the 30s,...More
