Huge dining area, speedy service & get what you see food. If it's simple chicken you are after this is a great choice. Usual bread etc offered, then the choice is simple, spicy peri peri or not, salad & chips. So if you are after anything else, this isn't for you. If you want gorgeous tasting chicken, it's a thumbs... More

The restaurant itself is a bit weird because parking is huge and the room (only one) looks like a canteen. However, the chicken was served quickly and was really good. (without piri-piri) Desserts are also really nice. A place not mentioned to the guidebook but really nice to discover

Excellent succulent piri piri chicken with crispy outside, served with chips and a large tomato salad. Chicken portions are not large. Service is prompt with helpful, pleasant waiters. It's a huge eating space with paper tablecloths but the food is excellent. We paid 40€ for 2 servings of chicken with tomato salad and chips, plus a follow up portion of... More

The chicken there it's probably one of the best ones you will try, because it's really tasty. It's a huge restaurant, very clean, service it's just fine, and if you happen to be there when there is a soccer game going on, the ambiance it's pretty cool.

Pleasant venue with nice ambience. This is a large restaurant where locals eat, and very well kept . Hospitality was good although service a little slow as it was not busy at the time. However the Piri piri chicken was excellent and with the wine was excellent value. Thanks.

Typical chicken house, piri piri chicken served with tomato salad and homemade chips, all arrived piping hot which is most unusual, so tasty, we ate every morsel. I would have liked to start with a soup but they don't have any....We loved it and will definitely be back.

Wish I had taken a photo of the plate of chicken. It was a plate of bones. They had a good taste but nothing to eat on them. I asked if the dish was a portion of chicken and was informed it was a whole chicken. Must be the smallest chickens in the whole of Portugal. When I buy a... More

We were taken to this restaurant by some local friends and it certainly lived up to their recommendations. The chicken is the best chicken I've ever had !!!! A large & busy restaurant but still the service was very quick and faultless. Honestly, best chicken ever !!!!!!
