With shelves laden with wine bottles and walls covered with azulejos, this is an old-school tavern serving traditional family-style Portuguese cooking up in the Bairro Alto. Friendly, unfussy service and tightly packed tables covered with white paper cloths are trademarks along with dishes like fried rabbit, pork and beans, salt-cod fritters, or grilled fresh fish. The "old 1st of May" is popular with locals, tourists, and a young crowd filling up with food before touring the neighborhood's bars and clubs.
