A local recommended me this place for socca, I tried other socca places before ( like the one at the flower market) but although I liked it, it failed to impress my kids. When I tried the Lou Pilha Leva socca it was soooo crispy...More

A great range of tapas-style dishes and good chicken and chips too. You can eat outside or there is a little room opposite for a cooler evening.
