A little restaurant on the water, somewhat interrupted views :( The seafood is average Portuguese fare, nothing special, but cooked well. Overly not impressed. Some of the meat dishes looked impressive so maybe that is the better option.

The hotel recommended we came here fro dinner, although it proved a bit of a trek. Not an attractive decor, but the traditional fish dishes we had were fine.

Good place near the sea to enjoy in family or with friends the good pasta, but specially meat and fish. Really good service and big plates. Quality food and great desserts. Very recommendable with a price about 17€ per person.

Visited on a clear evening, the out door seating area is nice although the plastic table covers could be done without. Inside however resembled a low grade bar with the football being shown to almost nobody. Sadly even though the venue is situated right on...More
