Great grilled foods, lots of local charm!! Pottery on the walls is from a local artist and all is for sale. Owner has horses, so there are various equestrian articles around. Portions are HUGE. Arrive hungry. Take care when ordering. Ask your server. A half-serving can easily serve 3 people. Reservations highly recommended. Mandatory on weekends in July/September and any day in August. House specialties include a large platter of Mixed Grilled Meats, or Bacalhau (codfish) baked inside fresh homemade bread with beans and cabbage. Tip: if you plan to get this, maybe ask your server to remove bread basket when you arrive. Saves a few euros, since you will have plenty of bread with this dish.
