We ate shellfish soup and grilled octopus with wine verde. The taste was really friendly, well cooked. The atmosphere of restaurant was quite 80-90 style to me; which made us souvenir the time when we went out with our father. We enjoyed comport, friendly service. Waiter didn't speak english but there wasn't any problem. Recommend.

Stay away of this place if you don't want to be scammed and have a bad food experience. I ate several cataplanas in my last visit to Portugal and I was so looking forward to repeat that experience since I am crazy about this dish. We have ordered a traditional cataplana with pork, shrimps and shellfish. The meat and seafood... More

For food lovers this place is a must go. And the cataplana (mixed sea food stew) is a must eat. Also all the starters are awsome like the risolis de camarao, amazing cheese spread, sardines and a lot more. The dishes are huge so go in a big group and order to share.

Cataplana is a wonderful Portuguese dish that combines fresh ingredients with amazing flavors cooked in a unique two-sided flipover pan. We returned to this landmark restaurant with friends and enjoyed two distinct dinners: fish and pork with all the trimmings. And they were accompanied by wonderful Portuguese white wine.

Traditional food in a homely relaxed atmosphere. Go with room in your stomachs, as they are generous with their serving sizes. We ordered the monkfish with pasta which came with chilli sauce on the side which was incredible!! The fish was tender the flavours were fantastic and the service was excellent!! Would definitely go back.

Excellent meal in a. Local, neighborhood restaurant. The. Restaurant, at first glance was not impressive, but somehow, we could just tell the meals were going to be great. Our meals were seafood based, somewhat like paella, but served in large i think aluminum pots, with great broths. The menu was extensive and seemed to vary a bit by language. We... More

Old but excellent service and the fish was very fresh. We ordered two kinds of Cataplana which was more than enough for group of five women. Really tasteful if you are into fish and shellfish.Nice atmosphere in an old traditional reastaurant.

Thank GudrunKristin
