Authenticity is a big deal for the Prue Leith trained chef/patron with simplicity and fantastic produce his preference.
There’s an excellent choice of fish or meat depending on your preference. And menu aside, they also have a blackboard of specials which could be a mean plate of fresh sardines with a helping of boiled potatoes and veggies which cannot be missed. This can be followed by a serving of prawns grilled to perfection served with a fresh salad. Or if you go the meat route, the delights are many with chouriço, chicken livers, trinchado and buffalo wings on the starter menu and for mains, chicken or beef espetada, a baby chicken (remember those?) or the usual steak options (300g) with a choice of either fresh cut chips, boiled potatoes, Portuguese side salad, Portuguese rice, creamed spinach (the real deal) or mixed vegetables. As a light meal, there’s chicken or beef prego or a great selection of sandwiches, fresh or toasted. A Rabanadas (Portuguese French Toast)with buttermilk dipped, fresh cut strawberries, bacon, maple syrup and mascarpone cream has to be on the list as a decadent interlude.Don’t miss out on the sweet stuff with either the donuts or a serving of pastéis de nata (two mini pastries per portion). It’s melt in the mouth. With a cocktail bar on the premises, their drinks menu is innovative and fun with a striking wine list that offers different by-the-glass options, always a good option.
Because the dine options in this part of town are many, they have to be on their toes which means diners are well cared for with snappy service.
It’s contemporary Portuguese café style with an upstairs TV and bar area which accommodates a rowdier crowd when necessary.
It’s all about the real deal. Authentic Portuguese cuisine is what they favour. It’s kept simple but oozes with flavour.
