Excellent Salads!!!

In the beginning we went for the salads, however whatever you choose all the food is very nice. We come here since November 2014 from Santa Luzia and it's worth driving often to this wonderful restaurant. Lovely friendly people and special.

We ate there three times on our holiday and were impressed every time. It is just down the promenade from Dom Jose hotel, tucked away up... More

Simple lunch with couvert (with local bread) jacket potato crepes - and a few glasses of wine. Food excellent, house wine good, waiting staff attentive, sun shining, sea view. What more could you ask for? Oh, and terrific pricing!

The food is to die for delicious! The staff are friendly. It is a small restaurant but it has... More
