A pleasant, comfortable cafe, with a Portuguese/Brazilian bent, certainly a suitable place to while away a nice part of a lazy sunny day.

A dry steely white from Alentejo, nice integrated acidity, from their all Portuguese/Brazilian wine list.

In the bacalhau à brás, reconstituted salt cod with its characteristic firm fibres, a pillar of Portuguese cooking, is cooked with finely shredded potatoes that are fried to a nice crisp, which I love. A sharp salad of rocket and frisee, dressed sharply.

An ok chocolate cake, nothing deep or fudgy but nothing bad.
