We had a nice meal here. I've only gone for 3 stars as 4 feels a bit high and I had much better food elsewhere. But it was nice and good value. No complaints - decent food and good service.

I have never come into contact with such rude, vile waiters in my entire life. I am from England so I don't know whether we have an extremely high standard of customer service compared to Portugal, but I have never come away from a meal feeling so angry and upset in my entire life. I am most upset with the... More

Visited last night 15/9/15. Very busy, only just managed to get a table. Service of this place was fairly slow compared to the rest of the marina, so was a pleasant change not to feel rushed. We had bruschetta and mozzarella, Tom, basil salad to start. Pretty average. The Tom salad, I think they ran out of basil as they... More

Five of us ate here, (four vegetarian), thought we would give the Veggie burgers a try, asked the waiter," would the veggie burger have mushrooms" as I have a severe allergy with mushrooms, Answer. Maybe. Never even said he would check with chef, my husband enjoyed his food, pasta was lovely, just the attitude of staff.

People kept talking about how amazing this burger was so my boyfriend and I went to try it. No! I do not agree- it was overcooked and had little flavor. I am glad that others enjoyed this restaurant by the water, but I did not enjoy the food at all.

The only restaurant on the marina that i would rate a solid 5 star! Unlike many other restaurants on the marina, the staff do not try entice you in by standing outside and pestering every passing person. Service and food is delicious. I ordered the monkfish and prawn kebab. It was beautifully presented, and tasted just as good. Food and... More

We ate in this restaurant twice. The first time the waiters were very friendly and the service was good.The second time the manager was very grumpy and quite rude. The food was good, well cooked , fresh vegetables.
