This place is the definition of a tourist trap. They literally have women in chef clothes standing behind a glass posing for pictures while making the codfish cakes. Very poor taste. These codfish cakes are humungous, not the right size, and they cheese in the center. The authentic codfish cake has no cheese inside, that's such a blasphemy. Please do yourself a favor and go anywhere else than here for pasteis de bacalhau.

Awful taste and very expensive for what it is! The fish tasted raw and the cheese inside it smelled like feet!

The pastel looks better than it tastes. What a disappointment. The staff is very friendly and you can take pictures and they will pose for you with a smile, but the product is a failure. The taste is not good and it's very dry. We just threw it away after two bites hoping the first one was a miss, but it got worse. Been there done that, never again.
