One of the worst and most over priced restaurants ever.

Poor food. Bland. Small portions. Minimal vegetables or salad. Expensive. So many better options nearby. Exorbitant charges for the bread and cheese. We fed it to the pigeons rather than leave it uneaten on the table. Never eat here.

Really poor - avoid at all costs. A tourist trap like no other. We got drawn in because most other customers seemed to be Portuguese, and the view is nice. But the food is no good, small portions plus a big price. Head absolutely anywhere else.

We sat here because of the terrace and the great view. That was the only good part of our meal. Like in other reviews, the waiter was unpleasant, the quality of the food was poor, and we felt scammed (this is why I am writing this review). The price for our mains was reasonable as they were lunch specials written... More

We were starving after walking the whole day and passed this restaurant and decided to go in since there was no other place in sight. First the waiter brought us a basket of bread and three kinds of cheese, butter and some pasté. I was pretty sure they were not included in the price so we took just the bread.... More

Too bad we read the Tripadvisor Reviews after we got served. It was just horrible. We ordered coffee but had to send it back as it was only water and it tasted just awful. They gave us each a new coffee and it wasn't much better. We left it there - paid the overpriced coffees and left. Bad decision to... More

85 Euros for 3 soups, 1 risotto and 1 scrambled egg, 1 bottle of wine, 1 small bottle of water and 2 expressos. The rest are charges for cheese, bread, air you are breathing, space you are taking, etc.

Everything said by others about this place is true - bad food, unfriendly waiters and too expensive for what you get. I can add this - it is a real scam. They try to charge you for everything, including things you have not ordered and the rest is absolutely overpriced. Simply, do NOT go there: there are a lot of... More

I am Portuguese and was taking friends from the UK to see the castle, Santa Luzia etc. I asked if the clams were fresh (a favourite of mine, which I eat frequently in Portugal) I was assured they were good. I ordered them and was horrified to be presented with totally dried out, over cooked clams that were tasteless. When... More

The waiter was quick to put a "couvert" (in this case a basket of bread, a plate with 2 pieces of packed butter , one piece of sardine paste and two already open small rolls of fresh white cheese) on the table before we could order anything. Actually we had only come for a drink but my wife finally also... More

The food was overcooked, the service was terrible and the price for the couverts was way over the top for any Portuguese standards. For the price I paid I could have had a really good meal down at the centre at some relatively fancy restaurant.
