Well honestly this dish was really delicious, and they were not shy with the shellfish! If you are gonna eat the traditional dish "Cataplana" this is the place !

Love this place!! The food is amazing - fresh, local and terrific value. I'd thoroughly recommend the breaded octopus, I have NEVER had such incredible octopus. Literally melt in your mouth, soft which can be so hard to do with octopus. The fried calamari was also delicious. And to make your experience even better, the staff are SO LOVELY! Our... More

Had lunch on the second last day and found it to be a great experience. Sonia the waitress is a character and has more energy than almost anyone I've ever seen. Full of locals, always a good sign. Be prepared to wait at times but the atmosphere is very friendly and alive. All local wines and quite inexpensive, bottles or... More

I had tasty baby squid & boiled potatoes. Prior to the main, I was offered an appetizer of sardines; which from October are frozen, not fresh. I knew this fact & shouldn't have accepted them, but I was ravenous. Later, I was sick beyond belief; in conjunction with terrible diarrhea. I wouldn't go back obviously, if people do...avoid the sardines!

This is obviouly a very popular restuarant however the night that we went there was only two prople serving which meant a long wait for additional drinks and arrival of the bill. The plus side and it is a big one is that the food was excellent. I had a sea bream with potatoes and salad. It was top quality.... More
