The food in this place is absolutely stunning - definitely one of my favourites and make sure I go there at least twice when I'm on holiday in Candolim.

Had a great meal again here. Very popular always busy. Had to book in advance to get a table. Several couples had to sit and wait to get a table. Great food, good service and a very enjoyable evening.

We had many a fantastic meal here during our holiday, the service, food and setting are excellent. The most we paid was £22 for both of us and that was for 3 courses each and two lots of drinks! The steak is cooked to perfection and the apple pie is amazing! I love this place and highly recommend it -... More
