This is a wonderful traditional Portuguese restaurant near Praça do Comerçio and Cais do Sodre. The service is prompt and the portions are generous.

Even the simpler pork chops were beautifully cooked. Everyone... More

Had dinner with my husband. It was not packed and we were well taken care of by a cheerful staff. I had yummy seafood stew with rice and my husband, who doesn't eat a lot of fish, had the beef, which was well prepared. The price was right!

We decided to stop here after reviews on trip advisor. At first my wife didn't want to go in, first impressions aren't great. Well we are glad that we did! The food was excellent! Seafood rice and veal steak, both excellent! Good value too. We would go back again and recommend to anyone!

Very friendly and helpful service. The food is really good and original from lisbon. If you dont like fat pork food or cabbage, order something else. Or drink a bagasso. We liked the atmosphere, too.

Visited when passing by from the station. Very good cured ham, nice choice of wines, very big choice of meat meals and fresh cooked fish. We've chosen local rice cooked with shrimps and clams and other seafood and enjoyed it very much! (Local meal called Arroz de mariscos). Friendly staff was very attentive and helpful, value for money for sure... More
