Best food i have eaten... More

All people were very happy with their meals and the staff were very helpful and attentive. Good location. Just back from the marina in a little square.... More

Touting itself as a Portuguese restaurant with home cooking the exterior does look promising. The menu is anything but Portuguese. Frozen chips, prawn cocktails and peppered steaks is the main fair with the most local you can find is Portuguese steak (?) on the menu. You would be better off a the Marina tourist traps than this, at least there... More

Given a leaflet for this one. A small, friendly place with fabulous food at reasonable prices. Staff are very welcoming and attentive and were happy to talk us through some of the items on the menu. Remember Portugal is not a fast food country, meals are savoured, so sit back and relax and enjoy the experience. We were advised to... More

On our first night a polite gentleman in the street handed us a flyer and pointed us to a block just behind the marina. On arrival we had a polite reception and a free bottle of wine. Wanting to try something authentic we had the seafood cataplana for two, we wasn't sure what to expect but it was very tasty... More

In a square with 9 other restaurants you may overlook this one but don't. We are here and received a free bottle of wine that was actually pretty decent. The service was nice and friendly and the food was very good. My wife had a steak in mushroom sauce and I had chicken piri piri. Forget Nandos this was proper... More
