Back again and not disappointed

Nothing much had changed including the quality of food and overall experience. Service remains at a steady pace but isn't that the whole point of being away? Visited twice... read more

This is a very small restaurant but what it lacks in space it more than makes up for in the food and its exceptional quality. Limited amount of dishes but this gives the chef time to fully bring out the finer points of the cuisine. Very intimate and cosy atmosphere. Staff leave you alone to simply enjoy what they do...

You can choose between meat or chicken served in fondue, grilled on stone on the table or prepared in the kitchen and served. Whatever you choose, with any dish there is a selection of fantastic sauces, making our meal our most memorable in Portugal.

Small restaurant. I had to move the furniture is a little around to fit in. Food was good and wines was excellent and not too pricy. However, I missed at theme. Where do this place want to go?. Originally, there must have been an idea, but to me, that faded out. This was my second visit to this restaurant and... More

We were here two years ago and were glad to see that the quality of food and service have not slipped in any way. Still a simple menu, choose your meat, choose your sauce and enjoy the results. The Europe sauce is still delicious. Nice little touches such as frozen glasses with your beer or wine enhance the overall experience.

we visited this restaurant which seats only 18 people in September 2015. The starter of sausage and cheese was clearly enough for 2 people, and was more charcouterie than sausage to our delight. The main course (2 steaks) was equally good, with the steaks not having had the life battered out of them as in other places in this town.... More
