Lovely food and friendly ataff

Has a visitor to the town asked someone where to go and they recommend here and also to book which we did. Even though it is only small it adds to the place and feels very cosy. The skewers were fab and the staff very friendly. No complaints. Would recommend. Thanks guys for a lovely meal.

We loved this restaurant, had really nicely prepared and presented food, nice not to eat in a 'chain' Italian Restaurant. Food was reasonably priced and was very will cooked and tasty, the desserts went down well too. The waiter even allowed my children to use his order pad as they wanted to do some maths sums while waiting between courses,... More

Great atmosphere, and very good food, big portions and vey good value for money. The owners are very friendly. We are looking forward to coming back for some "espetadas" and "poncha". A big thank you and wish them all the best!

I had the whole sea bream and it was a good size and absolutely delicious. Very good chips and salad to accompany it and a lovely dessert ... although they all looked yummy! Great service and. Will definitely return on my next trip to Colwyn Bay.

We have been several times recently and the food is superb be that Pizza or Pasta ... Steak or Chicken ... fantastic. This... More

I visited this restaurant for the first time with a group of colleagues and was very pleased with our choice! Lovely, friendly, family-run restaurant. Great selection of choices of pizzas and meat dishes. Very good food! I shared the Entrada Mista (combination starter) and then had Picado de Carne - a very very tasty beef dish (cubes of sirloin steak... More

I visisted the restaurant with my dad. It was recommended by a friend of his. This is the most authentic and the best Portugese restaurant I've ever been to and I will be going again.

Great eatery in Colwyn Bay offering a menu suitable for all of the family...hence why we are frequent visitors. My son loves a good pizza and I'm almost always tempted to join him but can't stray away from the delicious baked salt cod or fresh fish of the day. The carnivores in my family enjoy the theatrics of their meat... More
