The staff are always very friendly here, and the portion sizes are generous, we try to visit here every couple of months. It has a very homely, traditional feel which is great. My only criticism would be that food can sometimes take a while to arrive even when it's not that busy, otherwise very hard to fault.

We booked this restaurant for a Saturday evening. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The restaurant has a lovely warm feeling and it's a bit of a tardis, as you can dine outdoors whilst being indoors. You will need to remember that you are still in Westcliff and haven't been transported to an old Portuguese village. The food, service... More

Lovely food, served quickly and politely. We had a vast array of different dishes and they were all enjoyed by all. We did have to walk to get cash out as their card machine had problems, but that was fine. I wouldn't say it was a cheap night but the food was quality..and quantity too! Thanks.

We've visited this restaurant on a number of occasions and the food is always of a high standard. The service is friendly, there are lots of meat and fish choices on the menu, as well as a children's menu available. Some dishes include vegetables but for a large number of them you have to buy vegetables as extras. The restaurant... More

Looks nice from the outside and it has a rustic feel, so your immediate reaction is that it will be authentic well cooked food. One waitress really bubbly and friendly the other was the opposite, guess which one we had! We asked for a few more minutes to choose our food and our reward was a wait of about 20... More

Hi Marc Thank you for your review I presume this was your first time it's a shame that you have been put off by the fat in your pork dish as this is not the norm. There are so many other lovely dishes to try in the menu and the waiting time is not also this long but this particular... More

Had been meaning to try this place for years, as it always looks so inviting when we pass by. So, finally got around to it and we were not disappointed. I selected from the lunch menu - chicken in a creamy white wine sauce on a bed of rice - while hubby had the black scabbard from the a la... More
