The atmosphere is calm, the music really good, there is always art by different artists and the food is different from the other local restaurants and a very welcome alternative as such! I love the black spaghetti with sea food and the salmon tartare (amazing!). You... read more

Portuguese food updated, in a charming space. The spicy potatoes were killer, and the veal bites (more like baby beef) were delicious. The house steak was cooked perfectly rare, and served with a creamy sauce of white port and mustard, an excellent combination of flavors. We ate every bit and enjoyed the chocolate cake with ice cream for dessert. Prices... More

Visited for the first time with friends who are regulars. Enjoyed the outside table space - 5 adults and 1 child comfortable at outside bench table, under cover. Varied menu, very tasty food and excellent service. Good value for money. Would certainly return

Really nice restaurant - nicely decorated interior with jazz playing quietly in the background, and attentive staff. Menu was not hugely extensive, but had enough to satisfy us (I had a really good vegetarian Thai green curry). However, the experience was marred when my wife found a long human hair in her goat's cheese salad. The staff were apologetic and... More
