With a varied menu that carries a seemingly low price tag, it’s easy to blow a lot of money on a lot of petiscos (small plates) at this tapas bar in Príncipe Real. Atlas came in mildly hungry and walked out eight dishes later having paid far more than we had intended. This is a great place for a pitstop if you intend to keep your evening cheap — and if you don’t mind the final figure on the bill, it’s the perfect spot to fill up on a lot of different flavors. Atlas loved the Uruguayan picanha (thin steak) and the salada do polvo (octopus salad) and appreciated the fact that the house wine was a modestly-priced Douro at just over 4€.
