Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

This must have been a harsh year for Zé dos Cornos. The steps in front of its door, leading to the Mouraria centre, were continuously undergoing work, and the area became a traffic gridlock. The bright side for you, dear reader, is that you will have an easier time getting a table. Well, the tables are communal with wooden benches, but once you see the appetizers (breads, cheeses, hams) and the menu selections for grilled fish or meat you won't even remember where you're sitting.

Time Out tips:

– The family in charge, the wine and the recipe all hail from the same place: Ponte de Lima, in Northern Portugal.

– Their pork “piano” bones are a best-seller.

– Some fried fish dishes come with a side of excellent rice and beans.
