Have a beer or glass of wine while tasting cod cakes, a Portugal speciality. Street actors and musicians perform for the tourists nearby. Watch you wallet while you enjoy the local activities.

The food is OK but not outstanding. The attraction is the interior which is ‘belle epoque’ and a bit tatty but beautiful. The staff are attentive and polite. There is almost always a queue of tourists waiting to get in during the day so wait...More
