After reading good reviews on "Tripadvisor", we booked a table for dinner. We came early at 8pm and enjoyed the good service of a friendly waiter. He recommended the special of the day: Duck in Orange sauce which had a glorious flavor. My husband enjoyed the Veal Chops which were superb .Both dishes were accompanied by French fries and some...

Portuguese das Ratas has an interesting past which is Portuguese on it's walls. This busy little restaurant offers regional wines and typical Portuguese food. The food is presented perfectly. They do not offer half portions which is ideal for children. We had the Portuguese (salted cod) and the Ratatouille. The waitress spoke perfect English and playful with our son. We... More

Casa das Ratas is a very nice restaurant where the food seems like home food, very tasty. The portions are big, so ask for half portion if you're alone or a portion for two. The ambiance is perfect. Very portuguese way. People that work there are really friendly and want you to have a good experience.

Small but character laden experience awaited us. Locals were enjoying themselves and we fit tight in. Sangria was wonderful. Meal was a special of the day--pork chops--and they were delicious! Big meal for lunch but wore it off walking up the hill to The Convent of Christ. Atmosphere was dark but fun. Would definitely return.

Since we were hungry we arrived at the restaurant about 7. We walked in and the place was empty, the tables were set and some had bread on them but there were no staff. We waited and a waitress arrived, it seems the kitchen is across the street. She told us that they didn't open until 7:30 but politely she... More

This old warehouse of wine and food was preserved in its rustic style and maintained a humorous atmosphere that is a must see. The food was plentiful and delicious. I still could not resist the pears for dessert wine. Great experience!

Recommend reservation, when we got there only 3 tables left and 5 minutes later, no tables. They do have a more modern restaurant across the road (all the... More

Found by accident - a long narrow room with old wine vats - the kitchen is across the street! Olives, bread & cheese to begin, starters were huge, the mains (roast duck, belly veal) large & tasty. Good wine of the house. Great service - and only e40 for two of us! Recommended
