No need to dress up, a... More

Had fish (and vegetables) with the fish hard and overcooked a few times but you get the impression that the owners do enough business to not get involved over it. Waiters generally around but not understanding the term "waiting on tables". Other times been... More

The food was so so but far away from being good. Well, portugese kitchen is simple but can be divine and having been to Portugal many times I know what... More
