This place is right next to my hotel and I popped in after my flight here.
So, what could I have but cod for my first meal in Portugal? I asked for it to come grilled and it was fine, accompanied by a bog-standard salad and three pieces of boiled potato.
I refused the bits and pieces of fish paste, cheese and so on that get put on your table in every restaurant like this in Portugal, as their value for money is poor.
It filled a hole. It was pleasant, but not gastronomy - and I wasn't expecting it to be.
Just ask for a simple meal here and it will be fine.
