It is one of the most peculiar restaurants in Greater Lisbon, but it deserves your full attention. The cook comes from Minho and serves portions the northern way – that is, except a big plate of food; the menu has a series of traditional dishes, meat and fish on the coal and good hearty cuisine; and then there is a section dedicated to game meat, which could be the list of species at the Zoo, with rabbit, partridge, pheasant, woodcock, koala, zebra, camel, venison, and kangaroo; has great traditional desserts; and the wine cellar is luxurious.
Perfect for: eating exotic meats with Portuguese sides.
Must try: the rabbit, fried in olive oil – serves two.
