First stop when we arrive at Portugal. Juan as always remembers us what we eat and drink. This is the smallest restaurant of the Zansi restaurants and it is a shame that this one will not be open next year only Zansi 1&2 although Juan will be in number 2.

We had been in the zansi 2 the first week which was nice as we past the zansi 3 we thought we would give the piri-piri chicken a bash again it was very good we were told to be careful of the hot sauce which did compliment the dish .The drink and food are very reasonable

Leg of lamb was excellent! Lots of food on one plate... Bream fish special also very good. Flan to die for. I liked it too.

Four of us chose to dine here. I chose the Piri-Piri chicken, plenty of chicken, chips and salad, the piri-piri sause arrives seperately in a little dish and was quite powerful.

if you do decide to eat at this establishment, be prepared to wait 30 mins for you food to be served, they claim to cook everything fresh, but my wife and daughter just shared a pizza and I had the piri piri chicken special, do not have this special as I think my chicken suffered from anorexia as I was...
