I'm writing this review mostly to tell everyone who eats meat to order the pork cheek. We just popped in for a snack and decided to split the pork cheek with applesauce. We are still talking about this meal 5 days later. Enjoy!

We went there 4 people for dinner. 3 of us had the pork cheeks, they were insanely delicious. Wine of the house was very good, cheap as well. Well worth the detour, service was great, highly recommended.

This small restaurant is situated right beside the historical wall and built over a 2000 year old viaduct. The inside is very beautiful. The food was excellent. We started with a soup and fried squid. The pumpkin and bean soup was a generous portion and...More

Nobody seems to mention that this place is under a 2000 year old aquaduct ! What a location. The food was excellent. Bacalhao and pork both delicious. The last writer is ignorant about Portuguse food so should be ignored in my opinion. Give it a...More
