What to Order
Fernandes’ dishes are all seasonal and the winter season brings with it game dishes while summer is a feast of fresh seafood. The wild pigeon rice is one of the most popular dishes while the Acorda, a homemade bread stew, is a real heart warmer. If you’re feeling daring, opt for the pig’s feet with coriander.
How to Get Here
O Galito sits a 20-minute drive north of the city, and it’s well worth the cab fare to visit. Alternatively, take the metro blue line from Reboleira to Colegio Militar/ Luz, from here it’s just a five-minute walk to the restaurant. The restaurant has a lively atmosphere on both Friday and Saturday nights and to avoid disappointment, always book well in advance.
