Managed to get the last table (there are only 6). Had plates of cured ham and cheese which were accompanied by a basket of bread. The locals were drinking red wine (rough and fizzy) from ceramic mugs and I would not order the red wine again but the local white wine was excellent. We would recommend this Tavera if you... More

We came in for a bite seeing all those nice dried hams from the outside. Ham sandwich was really good. Really cheap. We both took a glass of wine, some kind of local sparkling red wine, it was quite bad. All in all good address, maybe try the white wine :)

We popped in for a quick bite to eat and were pleasantly surprised to receive some fantastic food. We ordered a prego as a vegetable soup. It was very tasty. However, they also brought out some presunto ham, olives, cheese and bread which we didn't ask for. We were quite hungry so it was fine until there was enough food... More

Highly recommended for a drink of port or local wine, together with a plate of local ham, sausage and cheese. Very authentic ant typical. I have seen locals come in and buy meat and cheese from the counter. The waiter, who will prepare your drinks and food gets top marks.

Take some time to stop by here to enjoy some fantastic local ham, cheese, bread and olives accompanied by a lovely bottle of Vinho Verde for less than 10 euro a head. A great experience of local produce in a unique setting.

I went to eat in this tavern with my wife and small son. It is not I think a typical tourist haunt, and is not for the shy or self-conscious. Our entrance was greeted with glances of surprise, and the following conversation took place (I translate): "Speak English?" "No." "Beers?" "No." "Menu?" "No." And so followed a great deal of...

If you like air dried hams/sausage and cheese this is a place to dream of. Washed down with copious vinho verde it is a thoroughly Portuguese experience. Be prepared to point a lot as not much English is spoken.
