Unfortunately our evening here was ruined by one of the waitresses. Due to a simple misunderstanding about drinks orders when we arrived, our table was made to suffer the entire evening. Her poor colleagues were left apologising for her and picking up the slack for her slow service and refusal to offer us drinks throughout the night. She was so... More

Used to love eating at this place. Unfortunately, we went as a party of 11 and had the worst possible experience. Our waitress was the most miserable person on the planet. She got flustered and annoyed as soon as we ordered. She ended up going off in a huff and that was the last we saw of her. So not... More

Been wanting to come here for a while so came on the "hottest day of the year". Upon arrival we were left standing in the doorway with no acknowledgement until a rather blunt, if a little rude waitress wearing ill fitting clothing of her own said here or garden. As it was a nice day we eagerly said garden. Well... More

Went with about15 from work and we had the set menu. Generally tasty food, nice atmospheres and good value for money. Maybe a little "mass-produced" but would go again.

Great authentic Portuguese food. I had the chicken skewers and it reminded me of a holiday in Portugal. My wife had seafood and she said that was delicious. Food service is slow but as all food cooked fresh to order then you cannot complain. Staff are very helpful and we will be going back.

Booked for a pre show meal and the staff checked this on arrival - therefore it was a shame service was so slow, meaning in 1 hour 45 minutes we only managed 2 courses. The food was tasty and the house red reasonable and palatable. Seating in the back was lovely with the lights and decoration.

6 of us visited here on a Saturday evening, the food was beautiful, we had steaks, bolognese, fish stew, skewered meats, mussels, biscuit cake and vanilla profiteroles (and more) between us and every dish was fab! Can't wait to return!

I was taken here for my birthday by my son & granddaughters. As you walk through the door the ambience & the happy staff are there. The food was spot on & very good value for money. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my family & friends.
