This is the place to go! The only but is that it is a crowded place for the simple fact that the food is amazing, I can't stress this enough! We ordered 4 meals of picanha with 2 rounds of four beers with desserts and paid 15€ each in a group of four. The meat is the juiciest I have... More

We had booked lunch for 10 people and even though we still waited 20 minutes, it was worthwhile. The food was great, service was fast and friendly and all 10 of us were served at the same time.

We were bitterly disappointed with the service due to the abnormal wait time, which in turn ruined the food. My boyfriend and I arrived at the beginning of lunch hour and by the time we placed our order, the restaurant was quickly filling up with clientele, this first wait time was long but understandable with any popular restaurant (20-30min), unfortunately...

Very quick service, but I must say the staff is quite rude and the tables are very tight, no space to walk between them. The food was good and very cheap.

We go to Portugal twice a year and always go here. Quality of food is exceptional (quantity the same). Service is what makes it the best. Get there early as its always packed.

I went there on several ocasions, I ate Salmon and "Picanha", for me this is the best Picanha in town. I like the ideia of the dessert bar, they bring you several desserts so you may try all of them. I recomend it for families and friends. But be carefull to go there early because they are always full :p

Good option for a lunch or dinner with very tasty food, excellent deserts and good wine for a very reasonable price. The staff is really nice. It's a bit noise but it's worthwhile.

We went to this place attracted to the comments we heard around city, and must say, all true! Passioned by food, always trying locals... it was great. Really kind staff, good food, price even better; spent €54 in 4 people with at least 3 bottles of wine, starters, shrimps, bacalao, picanha, side dishes, desserts... One tip to the owners, go...
