There was always a warm welcome when you went in and nothing was to much trouble the food we had was served beautifully. There was lots to choose from on the menu.
While we were there, there was a man on a guitar and singing songs from the 60's/70's and he got everyone entertained he was really good.

Had a meal last Friday 20th September 2013 they served me 8 mussels for 14 euros I should have guessed when the owner asked if I wanted chips with the meal. They were served bland no sauce and after the meal when I commented to the owner about my disappointment he said they're NZ mussels hence the small portion and price! Is it me why do they have them on the menu?
The meal cost us 47 euros in total and was shocking I do hope the owner responds to my comments as I would like him to justify our poor experience

This restaurant (a bit more than a bar that sells food) has a decent menu and although predictable, the food is well cooked and presented. It is a good step up from the 'chips with everything' approach which is normal on the Algarve and you can find main courses of steaks served with tagliatelli and Gorgonzola sauce and even a delicious liver, bacon and onions with mashed potatoes. The business is essentially a sports bar but there are restarant tables away from the main bar and screens. Service can be patchy at peak times but it all comes together eventually. Portugal is still a heavy smoking area but this bar is all non-smoking, with a smoking sister bar next door for those who need it.

Drinks are cheap, food is a bit expensive compared to other places close by, but not by enough to warn most people off. Definitely worth a visit.
