Had a friend suggest we try a Cataplana dish while in Portugal so we thought we'd try it when we came across one near our place in albufeira. We went with the seafood Cataplana for 28euros and it was more than enough for 2 to...More

We ordered a dish of crispy garlic mushrooms and when they came they were frozen in the middle. We sent them back but stayed for our main course. That consisted of overcooked and very tough pork. Needless to say I didn't leave a tip.
