Lovely place run by a friendly couple. Unpretentious and good Portuguese food was served in huge portions. Perfect place to eat after a long walk when your stomach is empty!

A restaurant owned by a local family. It was average but the most expensive we visited. My wife had the rabbit and suffered for the next week.
