Nice atmosphere, very polite service. The portions are quite big. The taste is very good. Price quality was okay but not great. Due to the big portions we only got to taste a couple of dishes. No amuses. We enjoyed it but won't return.

We enjoyed lunch better than dinner. Lunch outdoors included carrot lime soup and tea for me and a sandwich and salad for my husband. A full bread basket with jam was delicious. Dinner was a letdown. My caesar salad was made with iceberg instead of...More

The waiters were professional, proactive and genuinely kind. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the food and I must add, the traditional Portuguese style Octopus is perhaps the best octopus dish I have had outside of Japan!More

Right next to the hotel, could enter either by street or through hotel. Dinner was excellent, well done, very tasty, and the choices were a good range of dishes. A tad expensive, but within reason. We ate here twice. Was good both times.More
