This medium size place is really popular, so get there in an “off hour” or be prepared to wait in line. Service is fast and efficient and yet you don’t feel rushed. The windows along the street are filled with seafood as well as the counter that is in the entry way, but downstairs across from the bathrooms is a room lined with tanks housing a lot of fresh seafood. Some stuff does come frozen, as we found was the case with the giant prawns, but most is cooked while you wait. There is a predominance of butter and garlic but both go so well with shellfish, you wouldn’t want it any other way. Much of it is eaten with your hands involved and they have a sink with towels right next to the bar if you don’t want to climb down the stairs to the full bathroom (what a thoughtful idea!). We finished the main courses with a Prego which is a traditional Portuguese steak sandwich and they do a wonderful version with tasty steak and a perfect bun. For dessert we ordered Ginjinha, or for short Ginja, a sour cherry liqueur common in this area. The desserts appeared made out of house and while not bad, they’re not up to house standards so I’d suggest just the Ginja while you relax and savor the fine tastes circulating in your mouth.
