Went here after a disappointing experience at Vila Velha and to be honest this wasn't much better. Our whole party ordered soup as a starters which all came out cold. We sent it back and it was simply microwaved in the bowls it was in and reserved to us (still just about luke warm!) Then 2 of us ordered peppered... More

Lunch room was nice.Service was average, as the food.Reasonable prices.I order a seafood rice, that look and taste nice but was poor in seafood for the price (32 euros for two).

Fish was not completely cooked through. And not grilled, as I had asked. Service poor and quite unfriendly.

It was a busy restaurant when we arrived for lunch. The service was good though despite this. We got a soup and the gigi chicken. The portion of chicken was small and tasted salty. The soup wasn't bad but not great either. Not really a great restaurant but decent if you want a place to eat.

Small restaurant but food is good. We had a fish soup starter which was amazing @ only €3.50 and both the sea bass and holden bream were very good. White wine sangria was good too. Glad we found this place and definately worth a visit or two!

As this is a high rated restaurant on Trip Advisor we thought we would be pleased with our choice. While it is clean and functional as a restaurant the food just didn't have the wow factor. The staff just seemed to go through the motions and there was nothing personal about this place at all, compared to other restaurants in... More

The restaurant is directly on the main street close to maretta beach. The staff was very friendly and the prices were very reasonable. We ate the chicken Cubana which I can highly recommend. Portions have been really big. They serve a good choice of wine.

Very polite and good service. Don't know what some people are expecting this is a local cafe restaurant not a London eatery. We were a little disappointed by the texture of the squid but the steak was really good. Beers were very expensive compared to elsewhere, 4 euros compared to 2.50 down the road. However good overall experience.

Not one of our favorite meals of the trip. Ordered the mixed salad, codfish Bras style (with eggs and potatoes) and fish cataplana (monkfish, prawns, clams, potatoes). Not nearly as good as the cataplana we had in Lagos. The codfish dish was ok. They let us hang out and play cards while we had coffee until they told us to... More
