O Lavrador Restaurant Review

: The environs may be humble but the food certainly isn't at O Lavrador. Standout appetizers are clams, chorizo and ham, tender veal sautéed in wine and lemon and arroz de mariscos with clams, scallops, shrimp, squid and yellow rice. Try the paella with a glass of Portuguese house wine or order marinated pork in a rich brown sauce with clams and rice.
