This place was hard to find, but once we were in we were seated at a table by the window and the waiter was very good at taking our order promptly and was very pleasent. The prawn starters were plentiful but the chef special suckling pork was awful. The pork chops were so dry I couldn't believe it. On reflection... More

This Chef has a fantastic talent of combining extra ordinary tasts. Really special. From his selction of Tapas, a bar, buffet of about 15-20 dishes, all marvellous. A home made marmalade with cheese, unbelievable. We... More

This restaurant was so nice. We wanted somewhere that served traditional Portuguese food. We were not disappointed. We ordered the Early Bird 3 Course Meal, it was delicious. The Chocolate Mousse is a MUST try. Beautiful decor & a lovely waiter made the experience even better! Highly recommend. It's on a hill on the way down to the old town,... More

Excellent food and very good service, I highly recommend eating here. I had bread with garlic butter to start, sirloin steak medium rare and rice pudding with cinamin. Very good food at a reasonable price.

Rather nice setting with nicely set up menu. Food seemed rather fresh and was enjoyable. Service was really not up to standard to say the least. Complaints were ignored.
