Restaurant was not very busy, service was friendly, but also pretty formal / old fashioned. Very good, traditional portuguese food, plus some pasta with italian influence. Not a posh and fancy place, but a great choice for high quality food.

Varied menu covers most budgets, personal favourites bring Rack of Lamb and Chateaubriand. House wines reasonably priced and highly drinkable. Numerous visits - this restaurant never...More

Small and unpretentious, but the food and service really were perfect. A lot less money than some others we have tried, so on that basis it could be the best and should be the fist to recommend if you like fine food.
