“Simple and enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Piri piri prawns and pipi piri chicked were both really good. Fish soup, caldo verde, tuna steak and grilled lamb chops were enjoyed by others. Went on a really windy cold night - enjoyed, but a bit draughty.

This is a nice family-run restaurant. Good Portuguese food on offer. Sangria very good quality. Seafood was fresh and nicely presented.
