Fantastic mixed meat grill supposably for 2 more like 4. Salad and blackbeans as accompaniment. Best meat dish we have had in the 2 years living in Europe. So when visiting Ponte de Lima this is a must.

Ok food, good service and great location. It was late and this looked like a good place to eat, in the end the restaurant delivered what was asked but there was nothing worth mentioning.

Everything was excellent. From the service to the food. Bread, bolinhos de bacalhau, posta with steamed veggies and a delicious fresh almond pie. 3 beers and 1 water. 49 Euros for two. Left with a smile.

We stopped in for lunch. The food was fantastic. I ordered the shrimp and steak bites as an appetizer. The food was delicious. A little expensive but worth the price! I'd come back again!!
