Another of the places I highly recommend for trying out Portuguese food for a good quality/price ratio!
Tight space, always packed due to some very good dishes!

You’ll be surprised of quality of food-service-price rate.
A place to taste a real simple local food.
Would realy come again if any chance next time when back to Porto.
No “rip off” - if don’t like a starters, can always return to waiter. No charge if not touched

We went here based on reviews. They went wrong!!

Food was very flavourful. Large quantities.

The staff were characters that really added to the ambiance.

We loved the curried chicken, the fried sardines, rice and beans.

Will definitely go back!!

Oh! And the prices were good.

I had read about this restaurant in the Lonely Planet Porto handbook and was so glad that I had. It was even better than I had expected. Serving traditional Potugese food and frequented by locals, staff friendly and portions generous. Get there early as it fills up quickly and it is not possible to make reservations. The best food I eat in Porto.

The old man is kind but be careful when he gives you the bill,chek it twice and when he return the rest of your money, the young man is honest!
