I can think of nothing wrong. The food is great and prices are amazing, staff and owner are very friendly and helpful and top it all off there is free Wi-Fi available. We come here every time we are in Portugal. You would be a fool to miss out!!

On one occasion I had the special menu, two courses for 11Euro 95, my wife who is not a big eater mainly stuck to the starter menu and never... More

They have a 3 course menu for 11,95€ which is extremely good value. Service was excellent as well, very friendly staff. We ended up going back twice for dinner. The... More

Astonished to find the car park of this restaurant empty at 1pm, we wondered if it was closed. But no, the door was flung wide. Yet, we the substantial dining room to ourselves for the next hour.

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Portugal. We visited this restaurant 4 times in our two weeks. The food was good with plenty of choice and good value. The 2 waitresses Cristiana & Dasha are fantastic...they made each visit special and nothing was too much trouble. Well worth a visit.
