We ordered the pulpo and pork, half portion. They both came with Portuguese cabbages, and potato. They tasted delicious and with the house wine, it was just great. We had some espresso, a dessert, and a glass of port, and it is under 30 euro. Great price for the food.

I had a full portion of bbq chicken. The portion was ideal for me. The portion sizes of salad and chips were huge - could have fed three. Lucky I'm a big eater. Everything was tasty and well-presented. Starter of vegetable soup was tasty and warming. Fruit salad, generous, fresh and delicious. Waiter was very helpful, and service is pretty... More

I ordered the house special (mix of pork chops, chicken filet, steak and sausage) - the 'half' portion. It was enough to feed three people. So order with caution... :) The food is delicious, listed at a very good price and the staff are very friendly and appreciate your business.

We happened upon this churrasqueira as we wandered about the streets of Porto. The smell of perfectly barbecued chicken drew us in. The chef was expertly grilling dozens right in the front of the restaurant. The portion sizes are indeed massive and the prices unbelievably reasonable. I was surprised that there wasn't a lineup outside the door. We returned to... More

Our gaggle of tired souls straggled in after a day of wandering - grumpy little kids, over-sized stroller, hungry/angry parents. They were super-friendly and helped us carry all our crap upstairs to the beautiful second floor dining room. We were the first in the place so we definitely got good service. The beer from the tap was icy cold, which... More

I have no regrets over eating at this restaurant. The recommended beef was excellent, the octopus was good, too. The 1/2 portion is more than enough for one person, so don't get the whole unless you are sharing! House red was good, too! The place does not warrant a special trip, but if you are in the vicinity of Lappa,... More

Easy to find. It was our first restaurant we visit in Porto. While we were there they were still cleaning. The half portions are more than enough. The personel could pay more attention to there guest, else it would be a perfect price/quality.

High quality and absolutely fab food. We had black pig and boar, both excellently cooked. The half portions were a battle to eat, but definitely worth it. A musst for Porto!!!!

Having read trip advisor reviews we went to this restaurant and were not disappointed. The meal was amazing and we only ordered the half portions. Thought we were going to get a glass of wine but for the same price ended up with a half bottle. Brilliant value, authentic Portuguese cooking great service.
