“One of the worse dining experiences!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Normally my reviews are short but today I really need to convince you not to go there.

The place was empty, our drik order was changed, the quality of the couvert was poor. Only the white bread was warm and fresh.

This is a tapas restaurant and we order several dishes. The overall quality was terrible. The only dishes we enjoyed were the pimentos de padron (small fried fresh pepers) and the alheira (bread and meas sausage).

The fries and schnitzel were made in a very old oil. The colour and smell were really bad.

The oven baked cheese and black sausage bread was served without the sausage flavour, with a mixture of unknown meats with bad taste and finally with low quality cheese that was overcooked.

The bean rice was sticky and with several days of fridge flavour!

With all the experience we didn't order for desert.

There is no credit card for payment only debit card.

Don't loose your money... Dont go there!

Para começar o espaço não estava vazio no dia 20 de Fevereiro quando cá esteve com o seu colega. No entanto relembro que era um dia da semana e portanto parece-me normal que o espaço não esteja cheio!

Relativamente à bebida, deixe-me lembrar-lhe que a mesa foi alterada a pediso do seu colega, no entanto lembro que ficou com o seu copo de Vinho da casa, parece-me que estava do seu agrado.

O óleo das batatas fritas foi mudado precisamente no dia que cá esteve...
A nossa comida é toda feita na hora e freca.

Quanto às criticas do pão recheado, realmente acho estranho tendo em conta que o comeram quase todo!

Bem como os restantes petiscos.

Mas o que efectivamente me chateia neste comentário é o facto de ter dito que estava tudo bom! Se nã era verdade porque não o disse na altura? Porque perde tempo em vir falar mal de um espaço para a Internet quando o pode e deve fazer na presença da pessoa que o atende e se preocupa por o servir da melhor foram.

Quanto à inexistência de cartão de possibilidade de pagamento por cartão de crédito nem me vou pronunciar!
