Excellent location for an unpretentious but away above average meal. Best oysters in the region. Not a large menu (gambas, oysters, 'chouriço', cheese, not much more).

Good house 4 apetizers (excelent ones), only. You can taste chourizo, 2 or 3 kind of cheeses, clams, grilled shrimps...and Oysters (boiled or natural). Just that! I would advise to go there before dinner @ sunset.

Beautiful charming little village with only 12 inhabitants and a village cat. The fish is simple and delicious with fresh bread and a bottle of wine. Beer is also served. For desert we had to walk across the square to two ladies who were selling...More
