It was amazing! Excellent service and great food. We ordered calamari as starter and grilled Lubina (bronzini?) for two people. As... More

We stopped here whilst driving through Colares. The restaurant is cosy and welcoming. It was a bit chilly on the day, and so it was great to have an open fire in the restaurant. We both ordered fish dishes, which were excellent. The waiters are friendly and don't keep bothering you every 5 minutes to check if everything is ok.... More

We had dinner in this lovely restaurant with some fellow travelers. We started with a plate of local ham, which was delicious. Our main course was a skewer of grilled meat for two, served on a branch of laurel. The waiter served generous helpings and hung the skewer on a hook on the ceiling, until we were ready for more!...
