Had dinner here this evening and it was outstanding in every aspect.
We were greeted by the gentleman ( i forgot his name ) who made us feel really welcome.
I had a vegetarian dish and my mrs had lamb,both were beautiful both in taste and presentation.
We didn’t get rushed whatsoever and we even recd not one but 2 complimentary glasses of port which was lovely.
A number of people were turned away because the restaurant was full so I would advise booking in advance .
A great relaxed no rush experience and I would definately visit again. The gentleman was s great host who really looked after us , thank you

The whole ambiance of the hotel is lovely. Tables exquisite.

Food gorgeous though you have to wait a while between courses as everything is cooked to order.

Host/Waiter is very good.

Pre dinner driinks are expensive i.e. Gin and tonic is 10 Euros.

Having seen the positive reviews we were successful in getting a table in this small restaurant. The owner and waitress made us welcome and explained the various courses. The food was excellent and up there with the best meals we have eaten.
Cannot recommend this enough but please book in advance to avoid disappointment as this restaurant is very popular.

Arrived with no reservation and luckily we managed to get a table for 2. Beautiful food, lovely atmosphere and great host. The local cataplana dish we out of this world. Our meal was finished with a glass of local port on the house from the owner.
