Description: This portuguese snack bar/restaurant is behind the Pingo Doce supermarket at the watches roundabout. It is great value for money and the food is lovely. If I want chicken piri piri this is where I go. The pork ribs are lovely as well. The house wine is very good and the staff are fabulous. It gets very busy at lunchtime with the locals eating here which speaks volumes to me. If the locals eat here it must be good. A group of visited last night and the manager sent over a bottle of bubbly as it was my wedding anniversary. I would recommend this place to everyone who likes traditional Portuguese food.

“Very Good”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

The food here was simple but very, very good. The whole meal was great....the chips were cooked just right and the simple salad with oil & vinegar hit the spot. We shared the chicken piri piri and the black pork and enjoyed both. We are planning to go again on Tuesday before we go home. We were the only tourists in there but were made to feel welcome. The beer was large and cold and the whole bill was seriously good value for money. So happy that we found this little gem.

“Good food, good atmosphere.”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

Went for dinner with friends and found we should have made a reservation. Good sign. We were seated at a table close to the bar and entrance. The service was good as the waiter was attentive and polite. Chicken piri-piri had by all was very good and as stated by others the house red wine was very good. Will definitely return, of course making a reservation.

“Good value for money”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

Found this little restaurant/snack bar through trip advisor. It can be entered either through the snack bar or from the shopping centre. We got there about 6.30 and it was very busy. The bar is small but friendly and the small restaurant basic and clean. We were promptly served by very pleasant and helpful waiters and fortunately managed to bag a table as reserved tables were in the main. The food is ample but basic and I had the sea bass which was delicious. The lack of vegetables offered negative but at the prices they charge I had no complaints....a cheap and pleasant evening.

As usual great food, great prices and a warm welcome! The black pork is excellent, the chicken piri piri is the best around - don't eat it anywhere other than at o jorge! Thanks again for the brilliant service we get and we are missing the food already!!!
