Great lunch and dinners

I have been here 4 times with a large family and we have never had a bad meal. Everyone loved their choices and the desserts were great. The staff were great and kept my young son entertained too. You won't be disappointed.

Very good Portuguese food. A bit pricey but very very good! The live music was nice but a bit loud. I would come back again.

We ate here twice during our recent stay, the fact we returned for a second visit shows we enjoyed it. Plenty of fish and seafood on the menu as you would expect, food well presented and good sized portions, good service and a nice atmosphere with an option to sit under cover outside with blankets available if it turns chilly....

We ate in this restaurant mid week. There was 7 of us and although the food was good the portions were very questionable. They have on the menu starters for sharing, which were 18 to 20+ for small prawns, calamari etc. The problem was when the starters came they were not big enough for 2 people. You would need a...

We have been visiting this restaurant for a number of years now and have never been disappointed until our last visit. My son and I had the salmon which is normally a good size portion. But, this time it was disgraceful what we were given for our meal. The salmon was tiny. It was served with 2 tiny potatoes and... More

Our only disappointment with this restaurant was that we found it so late in our holiday that we couldn't go back again. The kids play area was fantastic and made our evening so much more relaxing than some others. However had we been a couple dining out on our own this could be a very different review as it was...

The garden setting for the outdoor eating area is very pleasant. The staff are welcoming and helpful. The live entertainment was good. The food is disappointing. Pork kebab was poor quality, lacking in taste and very dry. Sardines were predominantly dark meat and unappetising.
