Definitely a restaurant for the locals, which I consider to be a plus. We ate there twice during a recent visit to Porto and I think we were the only tourists in the crowd. We got there just after it opened at 19:00, so didn't need reservations but it filled up fast while we were there. It's not a fancy... More

We wanted to try two nearby restaurants but one was closed and the other full, so we ended up here by chance. We were not disappointed by the food at all. We had octopus, sea bass and alcatra. The octopus was cooked perfectly with no chewy texture, the meat was tender and the sea bass fell off the bones. The... More

It is a restaurant that, above all, is frequented by locals. This is always important, as I know that in any town or city, those who actually live there know where to eat. It offers very simple and well prepared Portuguese food; we asked for suggestions and were introduced to a delicious dish called Rojoes, which at is most basic... More

Looking for a regular, portugese restaurant we stumbled upon this one. Good food, great service and value for money. It is sometimes difficult to find a non-tourist redtaurant in a typical toutidt town but we found it

Went there with my husband, who was very hungry. Not a quite cosy place. The furniture is outdated and there's neonlights like you are in an office. But the service was very quick and friendly. Truly hard-working people with a heart for their business. The good was ready quite quickly and it was not expensive. And most importantly we both... More

This place was recommended to us by our accommodation host as a place to try traditional food, surrounded by locals, without a booking. She forgot to mention the huge portions. We opted for the Porto tripe and the Braga-style cod. One would have fed us both, but we pushed on. Being daring and trying the tripe was a great call.... More

This place was recommended to us by our Portuguese landlord. We were very hungry and took both a portion of our own. And there was alot of food! All of it was good and local. And the prices were quite reasonable. So this is a place where you should go if you are a group of men or very hungry.... More

The restaurant in the basement has not the best ambience (neon lights) but the food was good. Most other places were closed on Sunday so this is a good alternative.

Very close to the city center. Classical dinning surrongding. Very nice way of cooking seafood, and the price is not expensive at all. Many thanks to my friend Carlos who recommended me this restaurant. Service is very professional, speaks good English. Not like other restaurants in Portugal, bread and olivers are free of charge.

brazilian steak and braga style cod 주문했어요. 숙소에서 추천받아서 갔는데 고기는 조금 질겼지만 대구는 맛있었어요. 나름 괜찮았습니다. we ordered brazilian steak and braga style cod=) a host manager of an accommodation recommended to us. ! Although the meat was a little bit tough abd chewy, the cod was good. I would say it was an acceptable restaurant=)
