Nice atmosphere, nice music but quite expensive and we got sick all night after one "pastel mix". Maybe we were unlucky but I wouldn't recommend.

Nice caipherina , nice staff and good food. Perfect spot for watching other travellers. Try the ice cream from next door. Don't be surprised, you take a cup and pay and the end at the counter, the bill is made based on the weight of your ice cream.

We took a friend here to celebrate his 40h birthday and got a table near the front of the restaurant. Our initial order (caparinhas and bolo do peixe) were slow coming, so we decided to order our mains ( salada alaska and picadinho). 40 minutes later, having eaten the starter, we were still waiting.
