“Terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

Passed by on way down from castle. Saw Trip Avisor sign showing 4 blobs. You must be joking. My wife and I, wanting something normal, each ordered an omelette. They took a longtime to arrive, and they were greasy, over cooked and cold and served with lumpy cold rice and poor quality fries. Avoid at all costs.

“I miss grilled octopus in my life”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

Fresh seafood for that price? I'm sold. I've tried grilled octopus, grilled squid and mix grilled fish so far — no complaints. Everything is perfectly cooked, and even though the presentation is miles away from haute cuisine, that's not really the point here. You should also be ready for things like drops of soup on the sides of the plate or wet bottom of beer glasses — but again, not the point. Family run tiny restaurant with homemade portuguese cuisine for ridiculous price and with cozy atmosphere, gotta love it.
At nights tends to be pretty busy, but around 6pm almost empty.

“Good for a quick dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

Fresh seafood with very modest service. Good value for money place. We had grilled salmon and grilled chicken. Definitely the fish won! Service is very modest with some language barrier. Have not tried the sweets but table wine (white) was excellent. The restaurant has good location but no open air facility. Recommended for couples or max 4 people.

“Local, cheap, great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

We found the place walking up to Castello, and were attracted by the restaurant being full and good prices. 10minutes waiting inside was very worth the experience! Interior is nothing special but tHe seafood and the house white wine was just amazing!
Definitely recommended!!!
