It is difficult to choose the reason why Adega da Tia Matilde is best known for: whether for traditional food, or for being, for many years, one of Eusébio's (the famous football player) favourite places. But if you're not familiar with it yet, you can go there as much to see the homage to the Black Panther (we mean Eusébio, not the Marvel super-hero one) as to taste the pataniscas (fritters), the stews, the Coelho à caçador (stewed rabbit), the cod Isabel’s way, the feijoada à transmontana (beens and meat stew), the crème brûlée, and all things good and Portuguese, in very generous ammounts.
Perfect for: longing for old-fashioned restaurants with old-fashioned service.
Must try: the cozido à portuguesa (Portuguese stew), on Tuesdays.
