Stopped by here on way home with friends and chose this place through trip advisor. Bad idea.

Ordered a platter starters, was not great, didn't seem fresh, olives were winking at me. Chorizo was tasteless, cheese was bland and bread was a pre heated baguette.

Cod Cake was good but the prawn Rissole didn't seem to have prawns in it, just cheese.

I'd recommend the chicken but the Francesinha dish was a disaster on a plate, glorified Irish breakfast covered over with flavourless tomatoes sauce. A traditional dish done poorly.

Chips were not cooked.

Could do better here but staff seemed all over the place.

Have been passing this place for a very long time & finally dropped in for lunch today. It's exactly what you would expect from a Portuguese cafe. Good choice, friendly staff & quick service. Will certainly be back.

Delicious food. Mouth watering meat and tasty rice. Attentive service too. Doesn't have the polish of some of the city's top restaurants but can match them all for taste.

Nice chicken... the taste is good, salty a little bit and the oil is olive oil from the taste I guess.. portion size is good if you are on a diet (which I was on) salad is 2.7/5 cause of the oil and tomato freshness . Overall very good
