We visit Ze Manel dos Ossos 10 days ago. It was an excentric lunch with a great and delicious food, and a very funny and gentle Ze Manel. Thank you so much for that excellent time with my wife.

The restaurant is very small, and we waited for close to 90 minutes before getting a table. Nevertheless the food was amazing! Tried the mushrooms, ossos and pork which were simply fantastic. Price was good too!
