“Very good local cuisine”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

I'd go as far as consider it a hidden gem, as it is probably one of the few restaurants in the area with good local cuisine these days, way better than all the alternatives in the proximity where luring tourists is the one and only objective offering poor quality food and high prices.
This one's affordable and to be honest, from my experience, you can't go wrong with anything you choose from the menu. The Francesinhas though, as mentioned in other reviews, are really, really good. Only downside for me, as a local, is that it's always full so, get there early or make a reservation. Highly recommended.

“Francesinhas all the way!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

I've been to Porto, I've had rhem made by friends and relatives, but these guys are the experts! :-D
And if you're not into this delicious treat, you can also try their house steaks, the muqueca, the wine, the desserts... Delicious!

“Excellent local restaurant”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Food is really good, lots of choice and not the run of the mill tourist food. It's not palatial and it gets crowded with locals, and very noisy, but it's a great place to eat and the prices are not rip-offs. The staff are delightful. We kept going back for more! And the house red wine is good stuff too.
