Although they do not have english menu, we were well informed about the choices and it was all clear. You have a choice of appr 8-10 dishes but you can make sure that anything you pick will be a good choice. Very delicious food with nice atmosphere.

We were on our way to another restaurant when we came across this tiny gem of a restaurant. I say tiny because it can only seat 12 people. It is tucked away beside the city castle wall right in the corner. Blink and you will miss it.

The menu is equally small but being a chalkboard menu, I guess it changes daily depending on what the market has to offer. I love these sorts of restaurants because the food is always good. We had the choice of about 6 fish and 2 meat mains. The menu is written in Portuguese but that is not a problem as the owner has the patience of a saint and will explain each dish several times until you are happy. His wife is in the kitchen preparing these wonderful meals, and that is it - a husband and wife team preparing excellent meals with great service that could grace any 5 star establishment.

We shared a sardine pate starter (delicious) followed by our fish main courses. Both were superb. Dessert was the local egg tart speciality, while I went for a nut cake with honey.

A glass of superb house wine, 2 bottles of IPA, a bottle of water, and it all came to €52. For that quality of food and the whole setting, I call that excellent.

My wife, Kim, and I stopped for lunch. Run by a wife and husband, Claras em Castelo has richly prepared-to-order seafood dishes and charcuterie and cheese plates. Don't forget the desserts made on the premises! Beer and wine complement your meal. Intimate and altogether charming.

This super tiny restaurant which is up near St George’s Church was fantastic in every way. There are only 3 or four tables here so we highly recommend having a reservation for dinner. Our server, Tiago was attentive, funny and charming. He was able to explain the menu to us in English and all of the food was top quality. If you’re in this part of town, come to this restaurant. You will not regret it. Very intimate and welcoming.

We’ve tasted bachalau with milk, bachalau with onions and salmon with Porto. Everything was delicious! Highly recommended. If you want wine, I suggest you to order green wine.. very tasty!
