Have been here several times and it never disappoints. Great fish, friendly service. I personally love the feijoada de choco (squid stew) with extra hot sauce. Hits the spot every time.

We came in as walk-in customers and were so impressed with the quality of the food that we made a reservation to return in a few days. If THAT is not a recommendation then I don't know what would be one. We had a starter of clams in white wine sauce (finger-licking good), and then between the 4 of us... More

Very good food but service was slow as the restaurant was packed due to the fact that nobody wished to sit outside because it was a cool night. We had a very helpful German waiter who spoke amazingly excellent English.

Eat outside if you can but there check first to see if there are lots of flies. Decent food but nothing special.

We enjoyed a meal if fresh bream and piri piri chicken. Appetizers were a fresh cheese, olives and a fresh octopus bean salad. The waiter was very nice, as was the wine.

When we ordered the food we had chosen, something funny happened: the waiter told each of us, no that is not good get that instead. This fish no - it is not good today get that fish. No that dish is very heavy for the evening- get that dish instead. Such honesty in a restaurant i have never come upon... More
