Depending on the direction you are coming from, the restaurant is located just through the arches behind the Largo da Oliveira Square. We opted to sit outdoors for lunch. My wife had the shrimp with garlic. The generous portion was nicely seasoned and she thoroughly enjoyed her meal. I had the Seafood Rice, which consisted of a good amount of... More

Good food but the inside is to small and you have to wait a little bit to be seated but the waiter make you feel at ease. Will probably go one day again

As we left a party of 17 students were arriving .There is outside eating ( on warm days) as well... More

Nothing special, just good for a correct price. There was a nice winelist with local wines at exceptional good prices. Interesting when you're passing by. Good service!

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at this small restaurant. The food was very good, the service excellent, and the atmosphere pleasant. It was quite quiet the evening we were there - a weeknight in October. The owner/manager (?) chatted with us for a while. He was pleased that I had made an effort to learn a few Portuguese words, (although... More

This restaurant has a great location, middle in the historical center, surrounded by beautiful colorful houses. They have quite a big outdoor eating area in the town square but still away from the crowds. We have something very Portugese, a bean,meat, cabbage one pot dish. That was really good. The service was helpful and friendly. The restaurant inside seems to... More
