“This Gula Gula is Pretty Good”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Again, there can be a Q, so being early is not a bad idea. It's young, lively yet cozy. Good service, and the plates are well served. What ever I ask for, something a little elaborated or that might sound too simple, is always tasty. The desert my son and I go crazy about is the "White chocolate pie withe red fruit topping".

“Really nice place to eat!!!”
Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

I saw this restaurant in the guide, but you are always afraid of what can happen. The place is just beautiful a very romantic! At the beginning they gave the portuguese menu so we were not sure of undrestanding but then they gave us the menu in English. However we decided to take the risk and try the specials of the day, which were a lilltle bit cheaper. The food was nicely decorated and tasted amazing! Its a place you should go!!!! I really would like to go again?

“Amazing salads”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The meat, the fish and the chicken at Gula Gula are very good, but my preferrence is the salad with strips of meat , mango , lettuce and grated cheese. Light for the body and delicious for the taste. There are other great saladas and very good quiches. I recommend.

Good food, Nice atmosphere, reasonable price and options. A good place to have an ordinary lunch or dinner with your friends or partner. Hard to park by yourself.
