If you are ever near Valenca, Portugal, check out this restaurant. Good food, good service, and excellent prices are the best assets of this eating establishment. Their specialties range from an excellent Bacalhau a Fortaleza to Arroz de Marisco and Cozido a Portuguesa.

I dined here with two other hungry pilgrims en-route to Santiago de Compostela. We were all on a budget and the menu did not offer many economical options (ie: pilgrim menus), or so we thought. We informed our waiter what we would like to eat...More

This is a tourist trap. Overpriced food. Our meal was heated from what it seemed to have been cooked at lunch hour. Due to the manager behaviour employees were not too friendly and actually seemed sad/ bothered. We will never get back here. It was...More
