Authentic Portuguese food, with tasty peri peri chicken my favourite dish but can also highly recommend their fish and beef dishes. Relaxed atmosphere, good vibe and friendly waiters and management headed up by Paula and Cheryl. The outside verandah deck is a great addition.

Not necessarily, it will guarantee a place but there is a lot of room both inside and out so it's up to you. Can always call them direct.
