Quite a nice place to eat I guess . Sea Bass was nice (20 euros) medium size one . Portuguese pork steak not much to write home about in the Algarve , very thin slices . Wine and Whiskey fine though !!

I would say that this restaurant is very pleasant, the food had a good quality - try the fish, dourada, or Espetada de tamboril. The tomato salad was very good with organic tomatoes. Portuguese wine is always good! Green wine! I was not disappointed.
