O Cortiço is a typical Portuguese restaurant - busy, loud and serving excellent simple food.
The large dining room is frequently crowded with regulars, especially at lunch time. Although busy and with a rather basic decor it is comfortable enough and service is friendly and usually fast.
O Cortiço has a large menu yet the quality of the food or the speed of service don't suffer because of this. Most of the standard Portuguese dishes make an appearance including Bacalhau a Lagreiro (salted cod with garlic) and Carne de Porco Alenteja (Pork and Clams).
The house speciality of wild boar is first class and portions certainly leave you feeling very satisfied! A main course with couvert, drink and coffee is around €10 per person.
Highly recommended for those who want to try a typical restaurant filled with locals during their Portugal Holiday!
