Traditional food, large servings, fast staff. These six words would be enough to aptly describe this Portuguese food temple. Fortunately there is still room to tell you about the restaurant's date of birth (1926), the quality of its cuisine (“pataniscas”, “cozido”, grouper fillet, game-style rabbit – all of it good) and the ambiance (lots of suits and ties, politicians, former footballers and so on). This was Eusébio's daily hangout, and the late Portuguese legend is paid tribute through a photo gallery in the hall.
Time Out tips:
– Try the “cozido” soup, a delightful cabbage and carrot broth.
– Forget about paid parking, the restaurant has its own lot.
– A half serving will be enough even if you're starving.
