Great spot, delicious food

Lovely, atmospheric spot - we enjoyed a relaxing aperitif in the front garden before dining outside. Extensive fish menu, well-sized portions, and my main was well cooked and delicious. Highly recommended.

From the moment you arrive in this atmospheric restaurant you are charmed by the staff led by Paulo and Adelino. The atmosphere is sheer magic nearing Parisienne performance🍸 The food is heavenly whilst the wines are of the Gods.😇 Look around and see the great variety of people dining 👌🏿 A Restaurant not to be missed✔️✔️

We always visit this restaurant at least once during our annual visit to the area. As usual the food and service was excellent. The general atmosphere and ambience superb. Standards are as always maintained. Tends to be on the expensive side but always well worth a visit.
