Cosy Portugese taverna. Best espetadas in town. Good wine list. Attentive waiters. Ask for the Valdez salad for the table as a starter.

This restaurant has a lot of character and personality. I had a half a chicken with spicy peri peri spice. It has a great Portuguese menu , very well priced but does however not cater well for children but overall a great dining experience
