My daughter & I continued her pre-college graduation trip and didn't know what to expect when we walked into O Caracas. There were only 2 items on the menu so we had both. Veal stew & fried hake. Neither disappointed. It was the best food in 4 days coming from Lisbon. Monica & her twin sister served us and we... More

I went along with my friends starting our night out and I was, again, marveled with this place. The food - we all has stewed veal beef - was superb, so was the wine (white, "house wine"). We started with a very good alheira and finished with an out of this world chocolate mousse. This is still one of the... More

There was only two meal: meat or fish - needless to say that you know that this is freshly cooked and we always enjoy when there is only a few items in the menu.... More

Traditional Portuguese food served on a simple but efficient manner, with fantastic cooking with superb quality ingredientes. A place to visit, if you are not concerned with informality!! Excellent food for small prices. Good service! To visit when in Porto downtown, before going out into the night life or any other time.

When closed the faded green door gives no hint that there is a restaurant inside, no signage or opening times. We booked on the lunchtime for the evening. Certainly a ‘proper’ restaurant inside. The starter and dessert menu is limited and you can chose from a fish or meat main course. I had veal, my wife sardines. The veal came... More

Local food with some dishes of the day (fish and meat) to choose from. Delicious in my case for the cod dish with rice. Great price and incredibly fast service. Totally worth the visit.

地點不好找,也沒有確切的營業時間,當晚我們是19:15進入。 菜有點鹹,但價格跟服務都很好! Das Restaurant ist nicht so deutlich vom Aussicht, man kann einfach verpass. Gute price und nett. This restaurant is without any mark from outside. But it serves good food with low price.

This restaurant was recommended to me by the owner of the apartment where i stayed. Popular with locals, I went for an early lunch and the place filled up quickly. The menu is small, there were 2 daily meals to chose from. I had fish which was fresh and tasty. The chocolate mousse was amazing :-)
