When I arrived firstly I was given a menu as most restaurant do. I ordered my meal and after sometime the food was ready. I ate chicken and pap and really enjoyed the meal as it was well cooked.

Food is awesome, place is clean, but customer service needs to be slightly drilled into the staff. I will be sure to return

Excellent grill chicken, but can't bit taste of Nando's. I feel the sauce used is bit sour and chicken loss the flavour. Combo is good value for money but the size of chicken is lean compared to Nando's

The idealization of the Barcelos rooster derives from a legend concerning a Gallego who was sentenced to hang, despite his protests of innocence. In a last minute appeal to the judge, who was enjoying dinner at the time, the condemned man made a bold statement: If this claim of innocence was true, the roasted rooster on the judge's plate would get up and crow. Suddenly, a gorgeous scarlet-plumed cockerel rose from the plate, crowing loud and long. The man was acquitted of course!
