“A hidden gem!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

I was recommended this place by a friend, and have since visited it twice. It is off the beaten track but worth the trek! The menu has on both times, had many tasty options to choose from. There is also plenty there for the Wine Lover! On both visits we choose to drink the house wine because this is included in the price, and you can drink as much as you desire and it is very drinkable, which is fine if you're not the designated driver!

“Part of a group”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

We went here as part of a group of 22 and had very low expectations. We were so wrong. We'd been offered a limited menu, maybe 4 choices, while the menu in the restaurant had maybe 20 choices all for 14.5E as the Menu of the day. Many of the choices on the menu looked very interesting and different. I had the fish cataplana and my wife had the lamb shoulder. Both were excellent. The service was great and the wine was unlimited. They had a barrel of red and 1 of white each with a tap in it and it was serve yourself. We had come by bus so we did not have to worry about driving which made this very attractive. We highly recommend.

“Excellent in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

We were introduced to this restaurant by some friends and were very impressed in every way. The food, the service and the ambiance were all excellent. The owner is extremely hospitable and speaks excellent English.
We are already looking forward to going back.

“Interesting place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

W have been for the set lunch twice and each time it has been full - booking advisable. The food and service is excellent and such good value. As wine is included look out for the GNR when you leave!
