Style wise this place is very old fashioned, with old chairs, tables and decor, staff are friendly and are dressed in suits and add to the experience. Food is excellent. Prices are good. We were a bit weary about the cost due to reviews about starters being offered. Choose the rodizio and you can go wrong. They made a mistake... More

This restaurant is a blast from the past but quite nice for all that, specialising in grilled meats. The staff are efficient and look to be very family based. The meats are well presented but the local custom of serving both rice and French fries but no green vegetables is a bit wearisome. The black beans are a nice addition,... More

Porto has numerous good fish restaurants. But if you like to eat some really good meat or beef, this is the place to be. The rodizio menu is great. After dinner we were invited to the kitchen and saw the original charcoal barbecue grill ourselves. We could see the skewers of meat rotating over the dancing flames. Food is prepared... More

We went to this restaurant after looking for a Brazilian Barbeque place. The service good and the food very Brazilian! We were quite happy. The only problem we had was being charged €18 on top of what we ordered for the entrees we thought were complimentary as we did not ask for them!

After three hours at the Bank near the Boavista roundabout, with two English friends, we asked the manager for a restaurant in the area, he recommended this as a place to eat well at a reasonable price. After climbing the six steps leading to the first floor of an old building on the Avenida da Boavista, we found an environment... More

We ate at this restaurant because of it being around the corner from our hotel, and were really surprised. The waitstaff really take care of you above and beyond what you would expect nowadays. The food was delicious and reasonably priced.

This place feels a bit like dining in a dungeon but the food is very good solid Brazilian fare. Good service and value for money. Be wary of the starters that arrive at the table without ordering. You'll be charged for it!
