You're gonna need a reservation so make sure you start off with that. Once you make it there, you will probably be greeted by the owner.

This was very close to where we were staying so we went there on our first night, the staff were very welcoming and our waiter spoke good English. The food we had was good and the price reasonable

The food was super. We had a clams sauté that was delicious and an excellent bacalao gratinado. The service was great. The waiter was very welcoming and polite, and he also brought us an extra Porto for free to let us try a different brand. Most definitely recommended!

Booked and dined here on a Sunday night. No negatives, service, food and ambience all great. The guy serving us was a charming fella who was knowledgeable and helpful. Mussels and cheese were wonderful and my pork loins lived up to waiters recommendation. Cookies and cream dessert was divine. Thank you for a brilliant evening in a fantastic city.

A recommendation from our hotel Inpatio (reviewed elsewhere and thoroughly recommended) we chose Papavinhos as it served authentic Portuguese food. The menu isn't particularly fancy but the food was excellently cooked, very tasty and reasonably priced. We were a group of six friends and had a lovely table upstairs. What really stood out was the service: friendly and fun with... More

Our family of 4 visited here during Christmas week. This is a wonderful little family owned restaurant that served excellent food and wine. We ordered for appetizers a mussels dish that was excellent, followed by a garlic shrimp dish that was also very good. For our main course we ordered grilled octopus and a seafood rice dish, all excellent, but... More
