“Traditional Portuguesse food”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

The restaurant is quite small and tables fairly close together but not so much as to feel claustrophobic.
We were offered a glass of port to start with which was nice.
The food here appeared to be rather more traditional than many of the other places around the Barrio.
The garlic prawns were gorgeous! I then had pan baked cod steak which was nice and large but it still had loads of bones. Again nothing to cause a problem but something Im not used to anymore. The staff were very nice and didn't rush us out even though we were there till closing.
They were having problems with their credit card machine the night we were there so might be advisable to take cash or check first.

“Good quality-flavour. Expensive for Portugal”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Food is quite good. Quality and flavour are ok. However, quantity is poor and price is a big high for Portugal. I recommend de "spiritual" cod and the roasted pork with lemon. The restaurant is a bit small and the baths are "special"

“Excellent, unassuming restaurant”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

Good service, very well prepared food and reasonable prices are the reason I've been three times in the last year. This place doesn't pitch at the TA scribblers, just concentrates on the food, service and experience.

The pork in lemon with mash is excellent. Consistent, good quality food. The wines are well chosen and well priced.

Go again?

Definitely

“Good food, but simple”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

After aching feet from walking, and not wanting to go to one of those restaurants that has someone out in front haggling me for a meal, we came across this cozy place. Yes, I like the rustic homey feel, small restaurant, and there were actually a few couples in there.

The menu seemed to have traditional portuguese dishes (which was what we were looking for) with decent prices (for europe) around 12€ to 16€ per dish. What caught my eye was the Peppered Beef with Mashed potatoes, Baked Octopus in olive oil and garlic sauce and the baked codfish. Everything was quite simple.

We got the Bife Pimpente what was a thin steak, covered in a peppercorn cream sauce and a very creamy mashed potatoes. I got the baked octopus came with 4 small potatoes that were drenched in olive oil. Everything came out hot hot hot. \\

For dessert we got the Apples Assada ~apples stewed in cinnamon and port wine. It was super hot and steaming when it came out. It was interesting and very good, like a hot apple sauce.

Everyone was really friendly. But my only caveat is that after walking down a little further, I saw two more restaurants that I would have eaten at, with the exact same stuff, but cheaper!

“Nice place good food”
Reviewed 8 February 2014 via mobile

Nice place, nice people. The octopus was really fantastic, the beef with carrots and the chicken spiced were really good and abundant. We wanted only a small amount of wine and decided to go with the red house wine, surprisingly it was good, not heavy and with a pleasant taste. The restaurant was clean.
Finally the quality/price ratio good.
