Super restaurant, Carlos and his staff are first class.
The sea bass, dorado and pigs cheeks are brilliant.

We have only been here for lunch, but 3 times since management changed last year. It is far enough away from the tourist area to be used mainly by locals.
There are usually 2 or 3 choices on the daily lunch menu, which is €10, for soup, a main and coffee. We had Raia alhada on the most recent occasion, which was Ray fish stewed with garlic and potatoes, and had large generous chunks of white fish. The soup starter is almost invariably vegetable, blended and a normal Portuguese dish. Previously we had tried Cozido Portuguesa (traditional stew with cabbage, pork and sausages,) and Cabidela de Galinha (mature chicken pieces stewed with its own blood and rice). Each time the food was freshly prepared and served hot from the open kitchen next to the bar.
Staff are friendly and helpful. The least good dish we had was a Sopa de Cação (a main course of dogfish cooked in a soup of garlic and coriander with some added vinegar). This was from a frozen steak of cação and had insufficient coriander and overthickened with flour. Not the best we have had.
It is a good inexpensive lunch. They always have other fresh fish of the day, grilled, but may be a little more expensive.
Recommended and reliable.
