“Atmosphere and character”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Great food, wonderful host, full of atmosphere. Very small so we did book in advance as advised by hotel. Well worth a visit and by any standards value for money.

“Special evening meal”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

My husband and I dined at this quaint restaurant last week and found the husband and wife team very amusing and entertaining. We found the ample choices of mains varied and interesting. The wife cooks homely good Portuguese food and the husband serves front of house in a charming and welcoming manner. We would certainly return and recommend this restaurant

“Rude and unpolite!”
Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

We went thinking about having lunch there, before that we went there to make a reservation, he told us there were no problem and 1hour later when we went he told us they do not make any reservations for lunch, he was so rude with us and even with his wife that is on the kitchen. I was really upset, but on the other hand, the place is soooo small and with no charm at all.

Impossible because for lunch we do not accept reservation.
Only reservation for diner
we begin to serve lunch at12h00 until 15h30 if it's full inside just wait a little bit
outside on our bench.
I think you are frustrated people.

“Good food, intimate ambience ”
Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

The restaurant just below the castle walls manages only 12 comfortably, so book it! The hospitality is impeccable and the food matching. We shared the Portuguese meat platter and a Mediterranean salad to start, followed by stuffed squid and monkfish in prawn sauce. Food was freshly prepared and tasted excellent. Special recommendation for the strawberry tarte to finish. Food and wine list are not extensive but very well composed. A successful dinner.
