“Horrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Because the restaurants in the neighborhood were closed on Sunday, we decided to eat in the restaurant of our hotel. The food was horrible. We were there on Fado-night, the music was good. But that was it. We were not able to choose our own dishes, because it was a set menu. The blood sausage was not our taste, nor was it set to our standards. The fish was not fresh. And the whine was not good either. Complete disappointment.

Trying to get a cup of tea at 23.30 is not possible either. Apparently the machine was switched off, and would need 45 minutes to restart. So no tea for me. Just lousy whine.

“Great little find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled upon this place on a Sunday lunchtime when we were actually seeking out the restaurant across the road from it, which turned out to be closed. It has stickers on the window advertising an offer which sadly cheapens the restaurant which almost put us off but we were hungry so chanced it. It serves the hotel next door for their half board clients too.
The service was impeccable, as too is the cleanliness of this place (including the toilets!) The food was delicious and freshly prepared. Fresh breads and a mix of flavoured butters and olive oil. We then had an unexpected amuse bouche of a lovely scallop. I had chicken, prawn and mango curry followed by a raspberry millefeuille, my other half had wild boar followed by mixed sorbets. It was excellent.
