First glance at this restaurant I thought no.....big mistake. It's very close, well actually it's next door to the railway line. No matter, we had 2 excellent meals. It would've been 3 but it was closed on Saturday...I guess the staff do need 1 day...More

This is a place where you know you'll find a few selection dishes cooked to perfection: arroz de pato [rice with duck], cozido à portuguesa [the Portuguese version of a hot pot, with a more intense flavour], grilled fresh fish. Hardly any tourists come here,...More

The food was delicious, we ate there three times and every time everything was great. The house wine was great and a very good price. The staff super friendly, great family restaurant. We enjoyed our dinners every time

This place is close to the railway station which would make one think it is a busy place. Thankfully, this was not the case. A few people, simple but clean interior, long room (hence the name). The food was well done and tasty, prices nicely...More
