Perfect steaks, with Brazilian bean side dish which is wonderful. Sandrine, is a perfect hostess, and the Talude wine, nothing short of awesome. Obrigada. See you again, next year.

Fantastic mixed meat grill supposably for 2 more like 4. Salad and blackbeans as accompaniment. Best meat dish we have had in the 2 years living in Europe. So when visiting Ponte de Lima this is a must.

Ok food, good service and great location. It was late and this looked like a good place to eat, in the end the restaurant delivered what was asked but there was nothing worth mentioning.
