You can have a snack or something more substantial with no pressure either way. Our favourite is clams to start with followed by their home made tomato soup. Fried squid is another delicious choice.

We've eaten here several times over the past three weeks and everything we've eaten has been great. Beautiful fish and seafood perfectly cooked. My favourites were the clams as a starter and the seafood cataplanas as a main, shared with my husband. It was a...More
