I was recommended this restaurant by a local. Although it was late in the afternoon, they were more than happy to receive us - And I am glad they did. The starters, the food, the wine, the desert. Everything was perfect. It tastes like genuine homemade portuguese regional food, cooked with love and the result is something amazingly suberb. I couldn't recommend any other in the region. It really is worth the visit. Portions are also incredibly big so don't indulge yourself with the starters - The best will be yet to come. Staff is polite, simple but still professional. A must go - Even if you are on the highway - it is worth the detour (exiting at Aveiras).

We had to wait more than an hour to get our main course. The entradas were put on the table quickly but could not keep us busy for this long time and the wine was already more than half way when we got the main course.
Another thing that bothered us seriously was that several people were smoking during lunch.
The waiter was very friendly and apologetic. When the main course finally arrived it was delicious! The porco preto (tiranhas and plumas) was succulent, the French fries thin and crispy. This positive turn reconciled us with the fact having chosen to enter this restaurant.
To apologize for the delay, we got a complementary drink at the end of the meal.
The waiter told us that the delay was due to new people in the kitchen and was not standard! Let us hope because the food was excellent and with a regular timing and without cigarette smoke this would be an excellent restaurant.

Cosy and friendly place, based on local food traditions. We found it particularly interesting the habit of serving soup as a starter. Very crispy french fries. Delicious steaks. Highly recommended! We'll be back!

I came here to try one of traditional Portuguese food, "Stone Soup" in weekend. I got there around 2pm for lunch, a bit late time, but it was still crowded with people for family lunch. There's potato, bean, pork, chourico and coriander in soup. Soup was pretty big for two people but we finished all, and we tried grilled bacalhau with potato and mangusto(mashed bread with bean and cabbage) as well. I felt like home-cooked from them. Muito bom!

Restaurant specialized in grilled rabbit, offering also chicken, pork ribs and quail.
The setting is simple and so is the food. Quail and rabbit with fries and a simple salade. No menu. Washed away with a local red spakling wine it's enjoyable enough. The bill is also a treat at the end as prices are pleasantly low for the average Northern European

One of several grill restaurants in Cartaxo, Ribatejana is always busy. You can enter the restaurant either from the take-away section on the main street, or from a side street. We had grilled sardines with salad, and grilled pork and chips - both nicely done. Dinner with a half litre of red wine came to around €20.

Fizemos aqui a festa de Natal. Comemos vitela, lombo de porco e bacalhau assado. A comida é bem confecionada e o espaço muito bom para este tipo de eventos. Pessoal muito simpático e prestável, embora o serviço pudesse ser mais célere. Entradas e sobremesas razoáveis.
