We are staying at a hotel nearby and Clara's was recommended as a short walk away. It is tucked away right next to the arch leading to the Castelo de São Jorge (São Jorge Castle) and is tiny with only 6 tables for 2. The staff consists of a waiter and a cook. The service was excellent and the food extraordinary. We had an appetiser of local sausages and cured meats and a main dish of bacalhau de natas (salted codfish in a cream sauce). For desert, we had a slice of apple strudel and then an orange custard cake fresh out of the oven. All the food was prepared fresh and it was delicious, prepaerd with fresh ingredients. This is a restaurant not to be missed.

From the moment we arrived to the time we left this dining experience was faultless.
The proprietor could not have been more welcoming and helpful with explaining the menu and making us feel relaxed and comfortable. Even though this restaurant can only seat 12 the atmosphere is warm and convivial.
The food was excellent and perfectly cooked. The menu is small but you will not be disappointed with whatever you choose.

Our visit was everything a great meal out should be! Service was as good as any restaurant we have ever visited -anywhere! The menu is not extensive but there is still plenty of choice. Both the monkfish and the cod we ordered were delicious. The fish itself was beautifully cooked and the sauce entirely appropriate. Portions were just right as were the wines selected by our waiter. Our decision to complete our meal with a 40 year old port was entirely vindicated- the perfect finish to a wonderful meal.

We were staying by the castle and had ventured further out, but on the last night it was forecast to rain and we had done a lot of walking, so booked one the last tables in this tiny restaurant.It is very intimate and cosy, the food was good fairly rustic, with a good choice of Ports and wine. The menu is all in Portuguese but the host explains it to you and makes recommendations and really looks after you.We are glad we tried this on our last night, would recommend.
