“Great Portuguese food”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Nice house wines and delicious seafood dishes, I like their grilled cod with vegetables. The custard tart for dessert is great, specially accompanied by a port wine. Nice ambiance.

“very good”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Very good food . Well prepared .They have a variety of fish as well as meat plates . Don't skip the desert . Good value and excellent taste . Most of the time ,the owner is the server . He is very well informed and ready to answer any questions . The only issue is that if you go with a large party he refuses to write out separate cheques . He will only do so if you aggressively insist but he is very strong , loud , and aggressive in his refusal to do so . It makes for an awkward and embarrassing situation . He would probably have more business if he was less stubborn . I think big groups hesitate to go there because of his attitude towards this .

“Very disappointed”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

My husband and I found the service to be very slow which was surprising as there were few people in the restaurant. I had ordered my steak well done and it had to be returned as it wasn't cooked properly through. It was just after 10:00 on a Sat. night and while we were finishing our wine they were clearing tables, taking off table cloths etc. - basically shutting the place down. Needless to say we felt rushed and very disappointed!
