“Enjoyable”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

After reading ta reviews and recommendations re pre ordering, we made advance reservation, with a request for lamb tanzania. Did a dummy run during the day, it would have been quite straightforward if it had not been for the roadworks, but we followed a different route in the evening and arrived a little early. (we were first diners ) Alas despite our email request for lamb tanzania, this was not available (misunderstanding???) and there was limited choice, due to most dishes being pre ordered by other guests. My m-in-law had Lamb Tagine - she is v. fussy and did not enjoy it, myself and DH reluctantly choice Cataplana - generous portions, but would have prefered wild boar or lamb tanzania or chicken. The house white wine was excellent. Would consider returning (without mum in law) if they were able to serve pre ordered food

“Top Notch”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Looked up this site to find an authentic local restaurant with good reviews, and loved it, the Mrs & Mother in law are allergic to prawns so I luckily ate all the prawns wrapped in bacon, washed down with what looked like a pint of local red whic was very nice.
My Mrs had the pork and pineapple, excellent.
My Mother in Law had the tangene lamb, excellent.
I had the wild boar, top notch.
We would highly recommend this place, and we have been to dozens of Michelin starred establishments.

“Amazing value and service”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Booked a table based on TA ranking and not disappointed at all. Tivoli Victoria Hotel booked table but forgot to show us menu options, so only 3 main courses available when we arrived. Maitre D suggested cataplana, and it was delicious, along with about 6 other courses. Shrimps in bacon wraps, out of this world. washed down with local red wine, and brandy and port after, all for under 60 Euros for two people. Make sure you check all possible main courses before you go, and pre order.

“Total Quality Birthday Celebration”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

We visited on Saturday for my 50th Birthday Dinner and came away raving about the whole evening. Food was out of this World, Wine of which there is only one option each for red and White was gorgeous, Port made by the owners Dentist Friend was the best i have ever tasted and the service second to none.
Cant wait to visit it again next Year. 100% quality.
