Great restaurant, not so great atmosphere, great chef, great food. Pricey, indeed. Stay away from the regular menu and go to the expensive side of it. Tuna tartar with foi gras, vieira skews, just as a taste. Highly recommended, but a bit expensive.

Located in the 'Praça Popular' or Popular Square, which really reflects its name because everybody wants to be there. This square has many good restaurants, and one of them is the Japo. Please, order the squid, very tastefull.
