It is back to a family run restaurant with friendly helpful owners and staff. Very reasonable priced wine by the jarro (jug).as... More

Found the place by chance but glad we did. The food was quite good, not very expensive and the people were friendly and attentive. Definitely coming back during our vacation!

Decided to visit this restaurant after reading Trip Adviser reports. It is situated in a residential district slightly out of town. Hadn't booked, but friendly waiter quickly found us a table. Had the couvert and then a tomato salad for me and melon with presunto for my husband. For mains, a huge portion of lamb chops and a delicious meat... More

We found this little Gem on trip advisor and wandered over for lunch and enjoyed a fish feast with the best Sardines we both had ever eaten, followed by a great local pork and clam dish and another fish dish. Our waiter Bruno was a polite and genuine young guy and made us feel completely at home and so did... More

First of all here are some hopefully helpful directions. At the junction of Rua Jose Alfonso and Rua da Gafaria is a skate park. With the skate park behind you carry on up R. Jose Alfonso. The first street on the right is called Rua Dr Francisco sa Carneiro. Go up this street past a bank and a school football... More

After some time to actually find it (the map from tripadvisor isn't accurate but the address is correct) We had a great dinner here... food was really well prepared, so tasty and I can't compliment enough the owner and staff.

Came highly recommended and did not let us down. Great service 😃. The Meat and Shrimp Keebab was excellent and the House Rose was what we had been looking for. A very local and traditional cuisine. We will be back.

Sitting in Prato Cheio having sea bass and my wife is having huge prawns with rice. It never fails to give the best food and service. You must try.
