You know when you sit down in a restaurant, look at the menu, and feel you should get up and leave...we had this experience here but didn't have the courage to do it. Plain and simple, this restaurant is centrally located and gets customers in this way. The food was well below par. Prawns in garlic were from frozen and... More

We have been returning here for years. The same front of house greeter, and many familiar faces among the staff. Fish is just out of the sea, and cooked to perfection. We hope to return again and again !

We always eat here at least once when we come to this region. Good food served in authentic resturant. Only minor negative is you can sometimes feel a little rushed by the waiters earlier in the evening if they are busy as they look to clear tables for the next customers who are waiting.They do not have a booking policy...

This is not my favourite restaurant in town, but I nevertheless am a repeat customer. If you are looking for a quick, fairly priced, decent quality sea food meal: you cannot go wrong with this place.

Just a main street( from the railway station to the bach) there is this marvelous restaurant, with a very good food, such as seafood and very special portuguese food, in a warm and welcoming atmosphere! If you like fish, try "Cataplana de peixe", it is absolutely fantastic!!!
