Found this one while checking out the back streets, friendly staff and good service. I had the clams and pork while my wife had an omelette and y son had the sword fish. The pork was great, my wife loved her omelette. But the sword fish was very dry. All in all a nice little place to visit but its... More

Like many others I find this a difficult one. We have eaten here several times over the last few years. Although we have never had a bad meal, the food is always very good, the service is either really friendly and attentive or almost non existent. I think it depends on whether the owner, who is a lovely man is... More

We ate here 3 times in the last half of our holiday and wished we had tried it earlier in our stay – we found the food and service to be consistently good and competitively priced against similar restaurants (Europa etc) – would definitely give it another try if back there again.

They do steak on a stone which is well worth a visit for again this is a good restaurant and one we use if Europa is closed.

We tried the local speciality, a sea Food Cataplana for two, it was in a big wok type pan with lid, a big meal as it was with rice and fries on the side, we almost finished it, it was tasty and enjoyed.

This is a strange one!! We had walked past the road a couple of evenings and seen people sitting outside so we thought we would give it a try. Friday night and no one there, but we went in. No sure if the staff were interested or not it was hard to tell. After a while another couple came in... More

this restaurant is tucked away in a side street and you could easily miss it, but if you are lucky enough to find it, you will get lovely home cooked food , with a good selection of wines to wash it down with, all served by very friendly staff and very reasonably priced, my Bife a Portuguese was delicious.

Steak on the stone was superb, prawns scrumptious , chicken piri piri fabulous. They served some delicious food for the kids - all plates cleared... More

We ate at this restaurant and we were seated out which was in the street. We didn't mind coz the weather was good. Fish was lovely and their salad of chopped tomatoes, onions, peppers on a bowl with ice cubes was refreshing. Price was reasonably priced and service was good
