The stone arches give this space a unique characteristic. Antique furniture where some tables are old sewing machines.

Our choice: Cuzcus Prince (€ 7), soup (€ 2,60), glass of wine (€ 2,40). The atmosphere is very relaxed, it’s also a great place for lunch or just lounging.

The menu honors the fables (Fábulas means fables in Portuguese), like Cinderela, a delicious warm pumpkin salad, spinach and chevre foam…or Figaro, (chickpea, pumpkin, eggplant, cherry tomato and goat cheese….)

  1. I’d like to say that it’s not for everyone’s taste.
    The service is appalling, what you’d expect from a roadside diner, if we’re to be judgemental. It ruins the whole experience, and believe me, I wanted to like this place so much that I went enough times and tried to make abstract the said abhorrent service. Needless to say, the staff was not the same / they seem to run away as soon as they can. There’s a weird vibe there… not a good vibe. Anyway, rambling.
    Oh ,one more thing. What the crap are they thinking, charging for a glass of fizzy water that came from a barrel, and giving it to me as an Agua das Pedras? The list could go on…
