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.

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!

Beautiful decor and outstanding service with very good English! We shared a seafood Cataplana which was outstanding!! Unfortunately our friends didn't like their pork. So welcoming and friendly though!!

This is a great restaurant with lovely service by Sonia (sorry if I got her name wrong). She is bubbly and happy all the time. The food is wonderful too with great starters.

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

Walking along the seafront restaurants we decided to eat here,maybe we should have done some research first because this place is mainly a fish restaurant and because we didn't want fish the menu was limited,having said that the staff were great and very helpful.

We have not eaten here for a long time so decided to have a meal here. Four of us all had garlic clam spahgetti and it was delicious. We had very large portions so there was plenty to go around. The waitress Sonia was brilliant and very polite. We highly recommend this restaurant .
