The fish with banana, bream and swordfish were perfectly cooked. Staff sre friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommended. The pin... read more

What looks from the outside as a little cafe and uninspiring, is in fact a lovely restaurant of an evening which is always full of customers so this speaks for itself. This place is well run with friendly waiters and great food. This restaurant was recommended to us by people staying at our gusthouse, and did not disappoint. The garilc... More

We had a bad experience in one of the other restaurants and found ourselves eating here most days as the food was so good. Although there was a fixed menu, we tended to choose one of the daily specials and the fish dishes were excellent. I found I never had the same dish twice. On our last night we had... More

Lovely location, excellent food & kids under 10 are free for meals up to 8pm. Had lunch & drinks the entire experience was excellent. The best place we ate in so far...a must! Great menu also with lots to chose from.

This is a good place for a quick, unexpensive, typical Portuguese meal, served by friendly staff who speak excellent English. Nice cozy terrace overlooking a quiet square and a partial view of the ocean.

Spent a while looking for the restaurant but found it eventually. Well worth the search! Ordered a savory crepe, (which was surprisingly delicious) with soup and a sandwich between us. Excellent food and excellent front of house! Would recommend to anyone! 5*

Cracking little place just back from the beach promenade. Indoor and outdoor seating, with a lovely atmosphere not to mention delicious food. The waiter was very friendly and attentive, despite being the only one on and with quite a few tables to serve.
