Owners description

Petiscos means “tasty small dishes” in Portuguese. You could say it’s the equivalent of “tapas”. Housed on the first floor in a shopping centre overlooking a car park, the ambience is far removed from that of a seaside establishment but, here, food is king. This is attested to by the number of cognoscenti who keep the place busy. Rich chicken livers, served with bread to mop up the sauce, and crunchy prawn cakes are great options to start with. You can also have the chicken livers grilled and basted in lemon butter – a different yet equally delicious option.

Main courses include superb trinchado, succulent cubes of steak done to perfection in the trinchado sauce and served with baby potatoes. Alternatively, try the steak done in their popular Xai Xai sauce – spicy, creamy and irresistible. Portuguese beer and liquors, including 1920 Aquardente – a well-known Portuguese brandy – enhance the experience, as does the excellent service.
