“10 cos there is no 11 on this dial”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

3 of us went to one of the special Portuguse eveings for my mother's 80 something birthday. She does not eat meat 26 quid each for excellent food.

You got multiple starters (5 or 6), then a Mango sorbet, multiple main courses (again 5 or 6) and THEN they offered you puddings. We were 2/3 full of excellent food after the sobet! But HAD to try all of the mains

Everything was well cooked and there was LOADS of it, even if like my mother, you did not eat the meat just the Fish and Veg dishes

My ONLY reservation is that there was too much salt for my taste.

There was a pair of Dancers/Singers and a Musician to entertain us while we ate as well.

Apart from the special eveing I have been there for excellent coffee in decent shaped (Rather than the flat Italian style cups that let it go cold) cups and cake.

Like Arnie "I will be back" even if it was a higher price than I usually pay but well worth every penny

“Great Portuguese flavoured food - 79/100”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

We ate here at lunch time but were quite late so there were few people. The restaurant shares premises with a shop selling all sorts of craftwork. Service was superb and very friendly. I chose surf and turf - something I had not had in many years. The sirloin steak was as good a piece of sirloin as I have had in the UK. The prawns were delicious in a piri piri sauce that was a delight.

The score of 79/100 places this restaurant just outside the excellent category and that is only because I found the setting and decor of the place not to my taste.

“Tasty food in a quayside restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

The menu here is extensive, starting with many cooked choices for breakfast, or the usual croissants etc with butter and jam. All-day tasty baguettes and sandwiches on varieties of bread, lunches with Starters, Salads and Main Courses, made from recipes from different countries in the world. For Afternoon Teas there is an excellent choice of home made cakes. We will come here again when we are next in the area.
