Our first meal in Portugal and what a great way to start our holiday, food was beautifully cooked, well presented and plentiful. The staff were very attentive and all had a very high standard to spoken English which was very much appreciated as we don't have any words of Portuguese yet. As this restaurant is conveniently situated near our hotel... More

Enjoyed trying something different. It was lovely getting a meal served with veg and potatoes for a change. We got so sick of chips served with everything in other places! Good service and we all enjoyed a lovely meal.

Went for a meal here as I had enjoyed it last year. Good news the menu was the same as was the prices. Bad news smoking allowed throughout the restaurant ! The food was still good and reasonably priced but a chain smoking customer on next table put me off.

This was our first meal in Portugal and most certainly the best during our stay. We both had fillet steak and were amazed at the size. It was cooked beautifully and just melted in your mouth.
