Spent a lovely evening here for dinner. Food was excellent as was the service. Traditional Portuguese food, in a charming and cosy ambience... I can recommend this restaurant 100%.. I believe you can also stay here in the local lodging which I can only imagine would be fantasic. Not to be missed!! Nothing negative for this lovely place

Thank WWtraveller
