Unpretentious piri-piri chicken, pure and simple, delicious. We also had the doce da casa, but it was some much, we shared it between the whole of us. Service was OK.

Thank Dornes

We had espatada beef, chicken and black pork.
All was amazing.
Went down well with the red sangria
Dinner for 8 was relatively cheap at €130

We have been to this eatery every year for the past 15 years and it always impresses!! We love the informality of it, you take a ticket, queue up and when your numbers up you order.
Chicken is sold by the kilo, as are the fries. You can have spicy Piri Piri or plain and both are divine!
The queue times are long however so the earlier you go the better.
We have never eaten in the restaurant as we always get takeaway but the food we have seen served looks equally delicious (especially the kebabs).
Would highly recommend Churrascaria Das Cardosas, it's our favourite!!

Decoration as a típical Portuguese tasca. A eating not a dining place.
We shared a grilled chicken and a mixed meat skewer. Chicken was ok, cut up in small pieces, too small for my liking.
The skewer looks really impressive ... a sausage, beef, chicken, pork, tomato, bell pepper and onion.
All was ok but the beef ... it tasted and smelled bad ... We told the waiter but besides a surprised face nothing was said.
Cheap but serving smelly beef ? A chef should see (and smell) that when he is cooking. We will not be back. It fals under the unforgivable mistakes!
Over and out !
