“Hands down! THE BEST BEEF!”
Reviewed 16 November 2011

If you are a carnivore like me, you have to try this place. You will not regret it. Juicy, tender, and flavorfull with just the right amount of seasoning. Top it off with some heavenly desert. The crepes are to die for.

“The best beef anywhere”
Reviewed 15 November 2011

If you love beef this is the place to go!

I have been to restaurants all over the world and they have one of the best, if not the best, beef anywhere.

Modern restaurant with a great selection of Portuguese wines for most budgets.

“Best beef !”
Reviewed 2 October 2011

This is beyond doubts the best beef restaurant in the region. Excellent and very friendly service, modern ambiente and wonderful choice of wines. Higly recommended. We are regular guests and have never been disappointed. For the wine, try "
Quinta das Marias" or other wines from the Dão region. Viseu is the centre of the Dão DOC region.

“Don't expect a full menu - this is the place for Arouquesa beef. Period.”
Reviewed 23 May 2011

Great service, felt warmly welcome. Beef from Arouquesa cattle is the best native breed for beef production. I think that one can only find this beef in northern Portugal. Therefore, if you're going to this restaurant thinking that you'll have many choices, you'd better go somewhere else. I would go back tomorrow if I could!
