It is one of those places and restaurants I always long to find! Incredible food combined with a warm, personal atmosphere. We had the best seafood and... More

This is one of my favourite local restaurants. The food is light yet full of flavour. I love the fushion approach and the contrast of tastes. The staff is really nice, and although sometimes service is slow, the athmosphere is great. Also great in ajusting their flavours to kids taste.

During my (several) visits to this place I do not read the menu and order only: "Surprise me". Never had to regret this choice. The food is excellent and the seasoning, a mixture of african/indian, is just divine.

This restaurant explores its roots from Mozambique to prepare delicious and creative food, served in a very pleasant room just in the center of Oeiras

I reserved a table for eight ladies to celebrate a birthday. When I arrived I mentioned again that it was a birthday celebration and asked them to serve something special like a small cake with a candle or similar as I have seem in many restaurants and it is a nice surprise for the person who is celebrating the birthday....

Loved this restaurant. The food is different but very well made. Most dishes are good for sharing so you get to try more than one dish which is fun. We loved both the tuna dishes we tried plus the shrimps with green sauce and we also tried one of the steaks. Desserts weren't wow but nice enough. Price is good... More
