The English breakfast with orange juice was only 3.50 euro and it was great value for money. It was very tasty. The staff were also very friendly. Best place for a breakfast. :)

Lovely, lovely restaurant, food really good all fresh, great choice on the menu, extremely well priced, service was outstanding, even did smaller serving of main menu for children if they didn't want the child's menu, definitely recommend the cottage pie, and the mixed grill, both delicious

How weird!! All our white wine, vinho verde and rosé is kept in the fridge and send out with a freezer/chiller wrapper. Was it red wine and do you like your red chilled? More
