We were staying close to this restaurant and were persuaded by the waiter to come in. As soon as we were seated he forgot us. When we eventually got to order, the waitress had to ask the waiter for help with translation. He was rude in his reply to my request and tutted at me. Our food came, 2 chicken... More

The service was ok nothing special but the food was... More

We step by for lunch on the last weekend. Lunch offer for 5€ - Piri-piri chicken and mix grill fish plate. We were disapointed with Piri-piri chicken as we got a grilled chicken and separete piri-piri souce. We expected the chicken to be at least slightly marinated. Grilled fish plate was good. We find it not fair, that the staff... More

I was there with my husband during our honeymoon for lunch. The food was really okay for this price, but we were really disappointed with the service. The waiter was really unfriendly. We got a starter, which we didn't order and kept it, because we thought, it was a part of our menu. At the end we had to pay... More

Nothing special. Came with great expectations but it was a flop. A cheeky waiter that behaves like he's high on something (and I'm sure he is). They pretend to cook cozido a portuguesa once a week, but you discover they've run out of it 2hrs into it (12-1pm). They're getting too big for their shoes (after opening a second restaurant...
