Very good! The ambiance is good, the food is even better. The price is good for the amount they serve. The dishes are for several people to eat.

The one on the beach front, in my opinion is the best, only because of the view. The service is good, everybody gets involved for birthday parties etc. Salted steak "elephant ear", any... More

We then ordered carne do sol as a starter with rice and beans and the local farofa with carne secco. The food was simply delicious. We never got around (glad we did not order everything at once) to order the main meal... More
