Portuguese food is not that exciting, so finding somewhere like this where the food is excellent by any standards is exciting! It's a charming little place, the waitress (as mentioned by someone else) wrote the menu out for me in English by hand, and the service was excellent. I had salmon in oyster sauce - a big slab of beautifully... More

Simply because people from Lisboa & all locals think so & stop to eat daily! Welcoming, good Portugues wine & good with a little twist. Looks more nice inside than outside...

We had a lovely meal here. The food was incredible and good value and the atmosphere was friendly and cosy. My tuna was cooked to perfection and my family enjoyed the meatballs and pork. Recommended.

Comfort food based on Portuguese and international cuisine, all well made at very sensible prices. Service is warm and friendly and food comes in no time. A very good place to go with your kids or for a lunch during the weekend.

It´s easy to pass by this restaurant without even looking at it, since most people drive by car. My advice is to look again and go back since you will be missing one of the nicest place to eat around Colares. The interior room is warm and cozy and invites you to a nice eating experience, well delivered by an... More
