Very nice food - the spicy octopus starter, with paprika, was delicious; my tuna (with potatoes and stir-fry veg) good - but a bit over-cooked; my partner’s prawn and octopus skewer was spectacular, albeit an acquired taste perhaps. A busy restaurant with good English spoken....More

From someone that had never tried octopus before, we tried two different varieties of octopus and they were both delicious. Specially the one with clams (Portuguese clams are so good). Average portion sizes for the cost, but overall very good food. I recommend it.

Really enjoyed our meal here. Great octopus, tuna and beef. Also great that they have options for kids like chicken nuggets - in case you have a non-adventurous child. Also excellent service!
