Had a wonderful meal at this hole in the wall spot. Great wine list, fabulous fish and dessert. Exceptionally reasonable (a full portion of food serves 2).

It does not appear to be one of those fancy shmancy touristic restaurant, and this is another good reason to go to Cova Funda. Give it a try if you are looking for real Portuguese cuisine and good prices. The food is delicious, portions are...More
