Eat here if you want to feel like a pirate in the 16th century.. Not a clue how to serve, just bring the dish and at the end, a hand written paper with the check. That's all folks, like a bad cartoon

We were a table of four people, and got the sourly ish waiter (owner?) everybody else are talking about. He clearly didn't understand us at all, but we communicated fine and he even curled his lips a little when we complimented the speciality, which was indeed delicious! And cheap and a generous portion! I had no problems wit him. He... More

staff was a little bit unfriendly, hard to find a table after 19:00. BUT the seafood rice was delicious and the prices are perfect even for tourists with low budget...

Yesterday I went to this "restaurant" if you can call it by that name. The owner as soon as he saw me peeping through the door said THERE IS NO TABLE, I insisted to stay and he refused and went to the back of the restaurant. Then a waiter came to me and gave me a table. The shellfish rice... More

We went for dinner at this restaurant at the recommendation of time out and based on other reviews on Trip Advisor. The seafood rice was indeed delicious, but the atmosphere reminiscent of a funeral parlour. Our host and server seemed very unhappy to be serving us, and indeed every other patron in the restaurant. He slammed drawers, sighed gustily, and... More

This was mostly a review of their service. They told us to wait for 10 minutes, which we did, for like 20 minutes... and it turns out that a group before us came from no where and said they had put their names down. We were told to go inside and then to leave and wait again. No apologies, no... More

My Portuguese friend recommended this restaurant for good seafood rice, and he was right. Fresh seafood cooked in tomato based sauce with rice. It seems to be popular not only among tourists (bad sign) but also among local Portuguese people (good sign). I saw the next table with four local Portuguese guys and what they were having also looked nice.... More

I liked the quality and price of the food. The place is quite small and the owner sometimes is a bit angry. But you will have a great meal!
