Do yourself a favor, try the spicy chicken piri piri meal. Amazing. Can't go wrong with the bitoque or mixed grill either. Friendly atmosphere, Reasonable prices, and tasty, authentic Portuguese food.

This is the real Algarve experience at home. The chicken piri-piri is to die for, the wine is gorgeous and the value is exceptional. Never judge a book by the cover or the restaurant by the facade. This is magic!

The food was great, we ate picanha which is a Brazilian thing that I seriously recommend, Portuguese red wine is the best in the world, for desert I recommend chocolate mouse Portuguese recipe. The staff are very friendly and discreet. Best value for money for sure in kilkenny.

This place flies under the radar due to the fact that it might not be much to look at from the outside but once you enter you'll find a very authentic Portuguese grill. Portuguese owned and run with Portuguese tv channels on the telly you immediately feel at home upon entry. The spicy Piri Piri chicken and Rice is out... More

Had passed this place many times, so finally decided to try the much lauded Piri Piri chicken. Most important issue with chicken for me is that it is cooked through. This was not, with quite a lot of blood around the bones. I'd like to be more positive, but this is a big, and possibly dangerous, minus.

Thank you very much for visiting our restaurant. We always try to make the customers experience perfect. Also, our goal is to keep our customers happy. Would be very easy for us to retrieve the chicken from your table and cook it to perfection. Our chefs would be more then welcome to make it happen, if they had that feedback... More
