In a few tile-lined dining rooms, staff keep the meals coming with speed and good humor. Fried or grilled fish or meat dishes such as escalopes de novilho (veal cutlets) are served with enough salad, potatoes, and vegetables to keep the wolf from the door, while the arroz de peixe (fish rice) and cataplana de peixe (fish stew) may be large enough for two. The arroz doce (rice pudding) is homemade. Even if you choose a fine regional wine, the
price won't break the bank.
