Everything was delicious. We ordered octopus, rice with duck, Carmelita's cod and cheesecake for 4 people, and just half portion of each was enough for all of us! Best place to eat in our trip to Portugal!

We asked the very nice waitress for recommendations. She suggested the fried bacalhau and the duck rice. The bacalhau was great but the duck rice was fantastic. Desserts are delicious too!! And the atmosphere is beautiful and very Iberian.
