Great food only surpassed by the service. Portuguese classics, excellent wine recommendations, friendly service. These guys are fantastic. Went there twice. First time I'd give 5 stars, second time I'd give six .. if I could.

a bit crowded, you may need to make a reservation before as the place is small. overall the food is good and the staff is normal. not overpriced for the service and food that is provided.

There are God knows how many good restaurants in Portugal but for us this one is a standout. All the staff should be proud of... More

Owner is the chef. Uncomfortable hard wooden seating. Good lunch menu. Open kitchen so you can watch the knowledgeable chef. Busy place in a friendly lively area especially at night. Good prices. Highly recommended. English spoken.
