I am a vegetarian and was having a hard time finding anything but bread and cheese, and this place was a great find. We had good service, but it was really slow while we were there. There were only 5-6 tables occupied in the entire place. We tried the butternut squash soup and eggplant and my husband had the triggerfish... More

Echo previous comments. Food and drink good when it comes. Staff so busy, food and drink orders forgotten despite constant reminders. Seems to be endemic of Portugal culture, except for Luzzo pizza over the road. Electronic Pos ability, fastest meal in Portugal yet. Would have rated them 5 star but not on Tripadvisor yet.

We booked a table for 3 at 20:15, it is now 21:56, the main course is still not served.... I aske the waiter who told me that the chief is doing as fast as possible. I'm almost starting to find it funny. Appart from that, Food is not bad. But you must have time.

Dear “Cphome”, Thank you for your feedback. Please accept our most sincere apologies for this unfortunate experience. Unfortunately, we had some last minute staffing issues in the kitchen and we did not expect the flow of customers that walked in at more or less the same time. I assure you this is not typical of our normal high standards. Thank... More

We were looking for a place to have dinner close to our hotel on a Sunday night, and fortunately came across this restaurant as many of the other places nearby were closed (including the restaurant we had planned to go to). This is a very nice, modern, spacious restaurant with a calm atmosphere. The menu is not very large, but... More

We small son and I stayed at the hotel (Inspira Santa Marta), and dinned here a couple of times. The food is very good, though not top gourmet level (I do have high standards on this issue). The menu has a few but well prepared dishes, made of fresh ingredients, however I did find that the flavours could be done... More

This place is perfect if you want an evening meal on the romantic side with stylish decor and a pleasant, rather low-key, clientele. However, it also lacks a certain something (maybe warmth). The menu is not large by any means and quite expensive, but it does contain a good choice of different fish, vegetable and meat dishes. And it's very... More

Looking for somewhere different from the usual, this modern hotel and restaurant ticked all the boxes, especially for our vegetarian friend. The menu is extremely health conscious and very veggie oriented but I still found the meat offerings excellent as well. Try the carrot soup! its stunning for flavour. Extensive range or superb wine compliments the food and shows off... More

We arrived a little before opening, and enjoyed playing pool in the hotel bar. The wait staff were genuinely friendly and helpful. Our friend is gluten intolerant and the menu was inclusive and delicious. Would go back and recommend to others. Only a 20 min walk from the waterfront and the decor was interesting and modern. Well worth the visit.... More
