 Menu – Food

The menu at this restaurant is a feast for the senses.

Each dish is crafted with care, from the warm, comforting bolo do caco with its melty cheese and drizzle of honey to the sizzling beef skewers, cooked to perfection.

The homemade chips and fresh salad are the perfect accompaniment.

But the shot star is the 600g chop, a juicy, succulent masterpiece.

For vegetarians, there is a mouth-watering lasagna paired with homemade potatoes.

And for dessert, the lemon tart is a symphony of flavours and textures, light and tangy with a delicate sweetness. Every bite is a culinary experience not to be missed.”


The cost per person is an affordable 24 euros, which is a great value for the high-quality food and service offered.
