Had a business lunch at Pic-NIc. Great Portuguese steak and good variety on the menu. Service is good. Decor maybe a bit old and could be do with a make over. Still a nice venue to do lunch.

After almost forgetting about Pic-Nic I ended up there by accident again. Very friendly staff and the food was excellent. A bit of an old-school ambience, but always a good option for a dinner with friends. Well priced.
