For eat in, you have to come earlier or be patient because they have only two small tables and two chairs for each. On the other hand the food and staff are amazing! I recommend the rice and the chilli sauce so delicious!!

Don’t hesitate to try this place out. It was ideal for us and our 2 small kids (4 and 2yr). So reasonable and knocked Nando’s out of the park. The chicken was particularly good as were the rice, tomato and olive sides. Yum yum!

If you haven tried the roasted chicken at Cxxtco, you should know they have good smell and crispy skin but the dry inside. The frango at Frangasqueira Nacional is total delicious solution. Don’t forget to order rice and tomato salad. Mixing together is perfect. And...More

Principe Real
From the splendid garden and its cafe-kiosk to its
restaurants, Príncipe Real is more than worthy of a
visit and it won't let you down: its attractions
include "Pavilhão Chinês" (one of the more eccentric
interior designs you'll ever see), museums and a
fantastic botanical garden. It's also a commercial
neighborhood, and you can visit a renovated Palace,
home of the Embaixada (embassy) trendy shopping center
