Nice little place, excellent staff, good Portuguese petiscos ("finger food" otherwise known as tapas - but tapas are Spanish). Ideal for 4 to 6 people to share the items that are brought to the table.
Can't really say anything about the wine list as this was a pre-arranged dinner, to celebrate a friend's birthday. The available wine was reasonable. There is Sangria, both white and red, but I'm not really a fan and I found them too sweet for my taste.
As it's a bit out of the more touristy areas it is a good option to get a bit away from the crowds.

A rate neighborhood find. Quiet, welcoming host. The ambiance is authentic with few tables. The wine list is complete with a variety of wine and port from the Douro Valley.

Everything from the environment to the food is excellent. The white sangria, stuffed mushrooms, meat and cheese board and both codfish dishes were wonderful! Definitely check it out

We've had a wonderfull evening. Service was good, food delicious, the atmosphere very relaxed. If you want a bite here, it's probably wise to make a reservation to be sure, because it's not very big, but not necessary.
