Occupying the ground floor of a building the foundations of which date back to 1732, this traditionally styled eatery has existed in various guises since 1904. Along the way its customary ambiance and the regional fare prepared from cherished hand-me-down recipes has attracted a host of national luminaries including celebrated artist Júlio Pomar and writer and Noble Laureate José Saramago. Many of these VIP guests have been captured for posterity in framed photographs decorating the walls that hang alongside newspaper cuttings featuring glowing reviews, and numerous culinary certificates and citations. The menu takes diners on a seasonal gastronomic journey through Portugal, and plenty of vineyards too. Indeed, the restaurant is known for its noble Madeira and port wines. Yes, you can eat well here which is probably why Farta Brutos, which translates more or less as "excessive amounts" is named as such.
