The service is slow but kind. THe food is vulgar and expensive. I think that in Póvoa de Varzim the fish shoul be an ex-libris but, in my opinion, but here it is a complete desilution, in my opinion. The location is good, it has parking places, the rooms are very well decorated and it has place for big groups,... More

Has all the trappings of a mid-high level restaurant with the table settings and smart waiters but the food wasn't that good and we left feeling stung. I tried to order the Gourmet salad with grilled chicken but they had no chicken (?!) so I accepted cheese instead but was still charged 11€. My husband was disappointed with his large... More

Lovely restaurant. Good food excellent fish, but also very tasty meat options. Staff had to be reminded that there is an english card and were obviously not used to many non-portugese speaking visitors. On the other hand, that was also part of the charm of it.

Since arrival until departure, we've been perfectly taken care off. Being a smoking couple, we've chosen to have our fantastic meal on the smoking designated area, where we didn't feel as "fish in a tank", and we could really enjoy an excellent meal. For starters we had some shrimps, just perfect in size and confection, followed by the restaurant's famous... More
