Amazing dinner. Short walk from hotel Jupiter. The food was very fresh and had some of the best olives I have ever tried. My hubs had the curry chicken and I had the piri piri chicken and both were delish!

Not too good, not too bad. Nothing special and just what you would expect from a mid-priced place like this.

Found this restaurant 2 years ago and when we returned to the area this summer just had to go and visit it again. The food is really good. The lamb stew is most definitely the best I have had. If you go to Praia de Rocha don't miss out, give a try.

Food was extremely good, slight hiccup as they forgot a starter and extra side but could be forgiven as we were happy with everything else. Chicken curry was slow cooked and completely different to the norm back home would definitely go back for that alone!

On a second visit they even managed to get us a pre-booked table for six in the terrace when the restaurant was already full. When the little kids got... More

We stumbled upon this bar/restaurant and had some drinks.We really liked the look of it and would have eaten there but didnt have time. It is painted blue and white It is on an old cobbled bit between the nasty main drag and the sea. small but busy. Felt very non touristy.
