My husband and I went for dinner after noticing it crowded with Portuguese speaking people at lunch time. It was full, but after 5 minutes we were placed on a long table next to a lovely couple , who advised about the wine they were drinking . We had soup calamari and shared a half plate of delicious seafood rice... More

Family restaurant on the river. Mostly for the local public. Tried four different dishes - all were just excellent! Nobody can finish more then half a portion- they are huge! The vino verde was great too. The prices are ridiculously low.

Had a great lunch and went back for dinner another day. Staff was super friendly, seafood was really, really good! Me and my friend loved it so much, we even packed 10 bolinhos de bacalhau for our journey to the airport!

Had lunch here before a wine lodge tour. The place was busy with local workers, but the service was excellent. Decided to try the tripe stew and so glad that we did, absolutely delicious. It was flavoured with smoked pork, chorizo and white beans and served with rice. Certainly a meal to savour.

First time it was for lunch, we had trippa, and beef it was very good. The desert were very tasty but not too sweet, something we had a hard time finding in... More

Had lunch there. Ordered various sea food. Everything was very good, although sardines are really not our thing. Chocolate mousse was unbelievable. Very friendly service. We happened to come in the middle of lunch hour, so, had to wait a few minutes.

We went in because we saw that the place was full of locals and staff from the port cellars and took this to be a good sign. We weren't wrong! Delicious freshly cooked and authentic Portuguese food. So good that we went back again! Grilled meats were cooked to perfection and the baccalau was excellent. Portions were generous and excellent... More
