Why locals love it

A small tasca (very simple and typical restaurant), with four or five daily dishes at unbeatable prices. It’s a good place to go if you are visiting Alfama neighborhood. Very close to the Flea Market, Pantheon and the beautiful Rua dos Remédios. You’ll find it crowded if you arrive after mid-day, so don’t be late.

Why you should visit it

The walls, the tables, the TV set, the waiters, the clients… Everything is quiet simple and modest. So don’t expect any sign of luxury or perfection. The food is tasty and made by an old Portuguese woman, in her traditional way. Try Jaquinzinhos com Arroz de Tomate (fried fish with tomato rice) or Bifinhos com Cogumelos (fried pork with mushrooms).

Special tip

Ask the waiter for the whole menu. It costs only 7€ per person and includes: olives, bred, main dish, drink, desert and coffee.

Absolutely loved this place. Visited it today. Reached around 1pm and the place was starting to get packed. Ordered calamari rings, salmon, a jar of wine and a cod pie (just to taste). Everything was perfect. The waiter Binod was especially helpful with the menu. We so wish we had reached an hour earlier to get some octopus which got over before 1 pm itself.

Doesn't look very appealing from the outside but the food is incredible. Order the salmon and you won't regret it. The owner is very friendly.
