Went for the lunch buffet. Lots of locals eat there! The buffet was well stock at noon and I ate my fill. I have no idea the names of the dishes but everything was great. Wish I'd had time to learn a bit more. Recommend!

I've been to this restaurant many times before. It's very nicely decorated, friendly staff, delicious and generous portions of Portuguese, Cape Verdean and American food. They also have Cape Verdean music every weekend. The prices are very affordable.
