Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Amazing food and service. A taste of home in my case as I am Portuguese. Good service and the Francesinha is out of this world. Fully recommend.

Absolutely delicious 3 course meal. 3 of us ate Sardines, Clams and Calamari, as starters, then Rib Eye steak, Sea Bass and a Meat Cataplana followed by Walnut Ice cream, Chocolate Fudge cake and a Crema Catalana, we could not fault anything, it was all...wonderful. The service from the kitchen and serving staff was very attentive, friendly and considerate. A bit off the beaten track this restaurant is well worth a visit, and has been discovered by others including MP Penny Mordant, its clean comfortable, and economic, our meal was downed with a couple of beers and a bottle of wine yet the bill came to under £50 per head including alcohol. The only down side is that parking can be a bit difficult but well worth the effort.More

Amazing experience! Many thanks to Jorge and his staff! I went there with friends to enjoy a bit of the portuguese environment and was lovely! The restaurant was very clean and the toilets as well. The staff in the front were very welcoming and warm...with us and they answer all our questions and listen our requests. I chose a Francesinha to eat and was lovely. The sauce is amazing and you can see that is made in the restaurant. I chose for starter the cheese patties and the portuguese sausage and was amazing. I tried as well the starters of my friends and was delicious. The sangria and the beer was lovely. The mains of my friends were very well presented and they told that was delicious as well. For dessert I had the pastel of natal and was amazing. The chef was very quick with the restaurant very busy and you can notice that the food is prepared in the time that you ask for it. Definitely I will come back with all of my friends!More
