We went in here about 9pm, having flown in that day from UK, tired, needing to eat but wanting to get settled in to our apartment. Pizza and a drink seemed ideal, and the welcome was friendly.

After lots of lovely Portuguese food it was a nice break to have some tasty Italian. Bossa Nova was a fantastic place. Great atmosphere. The servers were full of personality, and they made killer gin and tonics. We loved it so much we went back a second time for a New Year's Eve dinner!

Bossa Nova is not easy to find (out the back of Dromadario!) but well worth looking for. The pizzas were excellent, the service also very good and the atmosphere convivial. An added bonus was the Hendricks and tonic - served with cucumber and a couple of peppercorns - perfection! We had such a nice meal and look forward to returning... More

Great selection of food for main courses - the selection of deserts isn't that great. The staff are really friendly. The atmosphere is very relaxed, family and couple friendly. I've been here many times and I am consistently pleased.

Recommended to me by some Sagres locals. Very good pizzas for 5 euros (also do them as take away but don't have menu on their website). Good range of other 'family' options (pastas, burgers, fish etc.). Food is good but not spectacular (which is what the restaurant is about given cheap price). Mix or indoor and outdoor dining. Very informal... More
