We started with empanadas, a beautiful salad with prosciutto and dried figs, a plate of mussels and finished with grilled octopus. All very delicious and filling! Felipe, our server was knowledgeable and charming to boot. Overall, a very nice lunch.

The last restaurant on the Gaia waterfront row run by world-trained Portuguese hipsters. Some of the best food we had in Portugal. Superb service, delicious tapas and expertly paired wines. But the view is the secret ingredient. Postcard worthy and the best backdrop for your...More
