We happened upon this place in a rain/thunderstorm and wow what a surprise, tucked away in a downhill alley this restaurant was just what we needed. The gentleman owner is at the bar and his wife cooks in the back. The menu is small but they get fresh fish and meats daily. We had our daughter with us and didn't find anything for her but they kindly offered to make her an omelet, so nice, who does that anymore. She was shaken slightly as the rain was very heavy, and there was hail and they went out of their way to make her feel comfortable, even going to the store close by and got her some gummy candies which instantly cheered her up.
They serve a small round of cheese, bread/butter and a bowl of olives to start, very good.
We ordered some wine and went with the recommendations of the chef, grilled sea bass and tuna steak. The plates came with a fresh made salad with simple vinegar/oil and a bit of seasoning as a dressing - it was delicious and the fish was amazing. I've never had sea bass much less a whole piece of fish like that and it was cooked to perfection with simple salt and oil, soooo good. The tuna steak was equally as good with some herbs, oil and salt as seasoning accompanied with a few potatoes and our huge salad, we ate like kings! My daughter ended up just getting a salad as a side and it was very big, she couldn't even finish it.
Our bill was just over 32 euros, insane for the servings we had but most of all I would recommend this place because of how kind and welcoming they are. It truly was like eating with family. We didn't try their desserts as we were stuffed but I wish we had, i'm sure they were homemade!
As we left they offered us a small shot of the local Portuguese liquor Ginjinha, so nice. We'll definitely be back. You must eat here!
