I have often eaten here when operated by Carlos, but I regret to report that he has gone. The premises are open but under a different management and not the all-you-can-eat-buffet as commented on here. My rating is not a comment on the restaurant as it is now, as I have not eaten in it, but simply to alert readers... More

A buffet lunch-as much as you can eat on one plate for just €5 makes it very hard to beat in value terms. A nice variety of dishes to choose from also, mostly seafood themed. In the evening they revert to a Brazilian type of barbeque menu with a choice of meats, served at your table. Very traditional and good... More

We have eaten here a number of times and the food is excellent. The meat is served in courses one after the other.

The meat keeps coming until you say stop. it includes chicken, pork and numerous types of beef including... More

We have eaten there on several occasions and enjoyed the experience but were aware that it can be hit and miss as regards service ie if locals or the owners regulars are in you are somewhat relegated in importance ! However on our last visit the experience was very disappointing my husband choose to eat fish so it seemed that... More

We had lunch here on our first day 5 euros each from the self serve buffet, pasta, meat, fish and lovely salads and all delicious. Later in the week we went for dinner - initially did not understand what to expect as the concept was not very clear from the board outside. However we were asked to help ourselves to... More

Have been here a few times in the last couple of months and can highly recommend the lunch buffet. A great range of dishes, sides and fruit, as much as you can fit on your plate and all for 5euro. Best value ive had in Portugal.
