Selected this restaurant to celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary solely based on the “upscale” appearance which was a big mistake. The man was very nice, greeted us warmly and took our order. Unfortunately, that was the end of his interaction and we were left to the mercy of an extremely rude woman who must have been having a bad day... More

Excellent food and service. Quite place but no idea why. The food was amazing and far better then 209 yards down the hill on in the main square. I can also recommend the mixed berry sangria.

We were told about this place being a big surprise from the outside appearance. Once inside, the setting is more formal than you would expect. The grandson waited on us, and was very polite and helpful.

They serve traditional Portuguese dishes and were very delicious. The cataplana was very tasty and the sea bass was perfectly cooked. They have a nice selection of local wines. You have to try the crepe dessert. The complimentary sample of port ended a wonderful evening.

This is the third time we have visited this restaurant in three years and the same high quality food makes an evening here one of the highlights of our holiday. The restaurant is very modern with hi spec furnishings and although it is a bit out of the way it is well worth a visit.

We were very surprised at the negative reviews as we had a fabulous evening here. Service was impeccable, really friendly and helpful (great wine recommendations) and lovely with the children. The food was fantastic, even the kids meals presented really nicely as well which is a nice change. Food was excellent we couldn't fault it and we all felt the... More

Had a meal here on Sunday night, as close to our hotel and the reviews were mostly positive. Very disappointed as it took an age to come out and 3 of our dinners were cold - I think they had forgotten about them in the dumb waiter. Complained and they took them away. After asking where they were (again took... More
