This place is a meat lovers heaven - the steak options are extremely substantial, cooked perfectly and presented beautifully. The taverna is small and cosy and the waiting staff are professional and friendly. A fantastic experience that I hope to repeat again.


We have eaten here twice as we loved the good honest traditional Portugese food and the very friendly English speaking waitress. Best lemoncake ever!

The octopus was delicious, the beef in mustard and local pork was melt in the mouth. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this restaurant and it was certainly one of the best in Northern Portugal that we have found.
