I ate there 4 times with my co-workers. Delicious food. Friendly stuff. Sometimes we went to restaurant at 22:15H and they served the dinner. 5 stars!

Got to this place after not being able to visit "Passadiços do Paiva" (hadn't booked a ticket for the day, and there were no more tickets available to sell). Even though we arrived after "regular lunch hours in Portugal", staff was very friendly and welcomed us with a great smile. The menu had a good selection of local (meat, mostly)... More

We went by recommendation from our hotel owner while visiting Arouca. Great food, enormous portions (take 1/2 if you're not starving). One of the waiters had a very good English so he took care of us. Nice atmosphere, lots of families with kids, go earlier or book ( at 9 all tables occupied)

Food was really good, although the lack of an English menu the waiter tried to translate it in a funny way :)! Would definitely recommend it!

The restaurant is on the angle of a side street just off the main high street of Arouca. The entrance feels a little restricted, but the restaurant itself is excellent. The portions are gigantic - even ordering a half-serving will leave you well satisfied. Fully recommend for an excellent meal

Food was simply excellent! We order 3 different meat dishes and they were all really good, served with good rice and potatoes. Deserts were good and nice (but not outstanding like the main dish). At around 20€ per head (with no wine) it's a bit on the expensive side, but quality of food is certainly worth it.

Went as a group of 5 and had a whole roasted kid. Have eaten kid in many countries and this was the best ever. Great selection of wines and attentive service.
