“Bizarre”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Went on recommendation from friends but to be honest can't find many positives after our own experience. It felt more like a throw back to an 80's package holiday what with a bloke with guitar playing odd 60s and 70s medolies and the carry on esque decor. The food was pretty bland as well as you would expect on a package holiday.

The staff are very welcoming and friendly, although one of the waiters was a bit too touchy feely for my liking and so was the spider.

“A quiet evening with a friend”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Had a very pleasant evening with a friend and my wife, the food was excellent and the recommended wine to accompany the meal was really a surprise. All in all a lovely evening and highly recommended.

“Simply gorgeous”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Simple yet delicious and very very authentic. If you've ever been to Portugal and eaten in a genuine (non tourist) restaurant you'll recognise the ambiance. The food is gorgeous. The beef stew and the archetypal piri piri chicken are stand out favourites. Give this a try, you won't regret it.
