“Lovely restaurant in a lovely location”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We had two wonderful meals at this restaurant including the cataplana and paella. Beautiful fresh food served by attentive and friendly waiters. Also loved the dessert trolley which was wheeled, or rather, carried out after our main course!! Make sure you get a leaflet from the touts to get a free bottle of wine. We found it excellent value for money and would definitely recommend if you are looking for traditional Portuguese rather than some of the newer, sleek restaurants that dominate the marina.

“Great service,relaxing and excellent value”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Visited this restaurant on second night of 12 day holiday and had to revisit 3 times during holiday as first evening was ideal. Relaxing way to spend an evening on outside tables and very friendly staff. Food excellent value for money ,especially the fresh fish dishes and tiger prawn starter .

Sprouts as decoration for steaks requires a sense of humour which they have in abundance!

All repeat visits led this restaurant to be our overall favourite.

“Great food and service fantastic”
Reviewed September 6, 2012 via mobile

Great value and food was lovely. Bonus getting free bottles of wine and soft drinks for children. The management should be proud of the staff, special mention for Happy the waiter he certainly lives up to his name :-) We returned several times.
