This small, homey restuarant is off the tourist track. Authentic Portuguese food served with style and authenticity. Charming wait staff,simple homey ambience attracts regulars. The rice dishes are wonderful. Tasty food,with fresh and wholesome ingredients. Well priced by international standards ...Would both recommend and return.

Very familiar ambient. The restaurant is placed near to "Torre dos Clerigos", to the ancestral "Lello library" and many other points of interest. The food is great, very traditional and, with that "home made" taste.
