This tiny establishment offered delicious food each time I had lunch there. Places to sit are few but there's almost always a spot to find and enjoy your amazing meal. The cook is Portuguese who aims for maximum customer satisfaction. Prices are more than ideal for the size of the platters. Note that this not a restaurant but a small... More

Coming to this splendid place once a week at least. Generaly portugese dishes like franzinga and bitoque, friday is always fishday with a fantastic fishsoup. Try the chocolate cake, it is marvellous.

A nice fast food joint with good food with ingredients straight from a nearby farmer's market, and very affordable prices. Always a good solution if you run out of time/ideas for cooking and want a quick meal. They usually run out of food after 2 PM, so it's best to go there around 1 PM.

First of all, this is not a restaurant but a luncheonette - in fact most people buy their lunches to take away. With this put forward, there is nothing wrong with the seemingly spartan place, the plastic forks and plates and the bistro style small tables and counters. The daily selection is usually 1-2 soups and 6-7 main courses of... More

Found this little place by chance. Open 11-4pm weekdays, Picante offers a reasonable selection of local and Portuguese dishes - no a la carte, the dishes of the day are on display. There are 3 or 4 selections, with some dishes changed each day. On my first visit - a selection of pörkölt stew, portuguese chicken stew, chicken with pineapple,... More
