Went there for charcoal grilled sardines although it's still off season. I was informed that the sardines were from last year but properly frozen in sea water. They were delicious. Service was good despite being crowded. Prices are very reasonable. Will visit again for sure.

Food was ok but nothing special. Prices are not less compared to downtown more service orientated places. I had better culinary experiences.

Excellent value for money restaurant, typically rustic Portuguese serving charcoal cooked fish and meats with salad etc. Steak is good quality at this restaurant. I have them regularly.

Very friendly and helpful owner. Quick service of really tasty good sized portions. Menu is limited but what they do they do well. Wine reasonable range and price. Poor view is made up by quality of food and atmosphere.

Straight in front of the railway station ,you just cross the street. The restaurant looks good with an enormous grill where your fresh fish is grilled while you wait. Waiters are friendly and quick, food is simple but good and the prices are very friendly....More

If you want a fancy meal, look elsewhere. This place serves fresh fish, grilled to order, good size portions (e.g. seven sardines), simply served with a basic salad and boiled potatoes in side dishes. We really enjoyed the quality of it. Simple setting, no glorious...More
