My partner and I are vegetarians and were trying to find a restaurant that would serve a vegetarian "moqueca" (traditional Brazilian dish). Even though the dish was not listed on the menu, the attend said that the kitchen could prepare one specially for us.. She even asked her what we would like to add in it. In addition, she charged...

The menu says you'll wait half hour, we waited 50 mins for our fish stew. The only discernible taste in the stew was salt - it was like eating a bowl of salt. we were starving by the time food came but it was so salty it was inedible and so we left hungry, but only after paying an exorbitant...

I was there on the first day for a shrimp broth but they did not have it, so I had a crab broth. Really good. Then I ordered a fish dish - a whole fried fish on the plate, and it was well served. On the second day, I´ve ordered the shrimp again, but once more the dish was not... More

On the menu it said it might take half an hour to prepare the meal. OK, so forewarned we ordered drinks. An hour and a half later, the food arrived. Since it was only a fish salad we were somewhat taken aback by this but hey, we were on holiday so it wasn't the end of the world other than... More

Good caldos (soup) at great prices ;) We tended to go for the frutos do mar (sea food soup) but every now and again we also had a PF (prato feito = loaded plate of food that tend to be cheaper) which were also good. It isn't as nice as other close to the sea front, but at great quality/price... More

Walked in the place on a rainy day. Did not know what to expect. It was terrible. Terrible service (the waitress was not helpful at all. When we asked to get french fries instead of mashed potatoes (since many dishes came with french fries) she quickly replied no, as if we had asked for caviar. When we asked information about...
