“Wrong fish”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Surely one distinguishes Sole fish with just about any other. My wife ordered Sole and they brought something completely different. Their excuse was that the supplier told them it was Sole. After speaking to the chef and even looking at an Ipad on internet they agreed it was not sole, but that was the best they had.. Rather hefty price for what we ate.. Great service, very helpful and friendly. I would go back but go to the kitchen and make sure I get what I order first.

“great food, soft music, good wine selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Nice surprise in a beach city. Here you´ll find elaborated dishes in a nice atmosphere, no "samba" or "pagode" music, live soft jazz and rythm´s blues instead. The shrimp and the lamb were tastfull, same with the portuguese wine. Kind of expensive, but fair enough.
