“Partying with the locals!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

This was always an atmospheric & fun local place to get a beer, but recently they've started doing live music & food, and the fun has been cranked up to 11! ;-)

The band was great the night we went, but, as they put on all sorts of varying gigs and musical taste varies, I'd like to concentrate on the food by saying they do terrific homemade pizzas (I had the vegetarian and they do not skimp on toppings, which makes a pleasant change) and my partner had the homemade burger 'with everything', which he really enjoyed *cough*because he's a greedy so-and-so*cough*. They also do stuffed pita breads, and Portuguese steak sandwiches & their homemade dessert selection seems to vary, but the cheesecake we tried was excellent (if filling...SO...FILLING).

If you're looking for a casual dining place with a young & local vibe that turns into a great night out with live music after the dinner service & into the wee hours, Joao & Sonia & the rest of the friendly crew here can certainly provide it! Will be back & I suspect partaking of their takeaway service in the near future too....
