They are as good as Nando's in terms of food quality & taste. There flamed grilled chickens are awesome. Juicy & grilled to perfection. The best thing is that there is always promotion throughout year at group buying sites like cobone/groupon/kobonaty. Check out before you plan

No words can describe the horror of the entire experience...from the incredibly annoying manager who was pushy and did not leave us one minute to read the menu to the horrific chicken burger that made Macdonald's seem like a gourmet restaurant... not to mention the disgusting chicken picante that was beyond mediocre...But to be fair, their coke was good ☺...

We are finally happy to see a few new places offering decent fare with some exciting flovours inside the Ibn Batuta Mall. Barcelos is one of them and we like the food & service here, ideal for a pre movie snack or a post movie dinner. We have tried the 1/4, 1/2 & the full -flame grilled chicken options along... More
