“Break the bank”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

Expensive, Expensive and dirty. Table cloth was dirty, wine glass dirty and my cooldrink had nibbly bits in, we did not stay to eat as I wasn't sure how this would go. In and out in 15min.

“Stunning!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

What a lovely place! Lodete is a fantastic host - we connected immediately and we had delectable food, as well as excellent service. Mannie is just as friendly and outgoing and we had one of the best plate of crêpes I've ever tasted in my life! We actually went back the next day to have more. Please try it - you won't be sorry.

“WOW - what an experience of delectable Portuguese dishes -”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

A fairly new addition to the Waterfront - well worth giving a try - delectable Portuguese dishes - I had the Espatada - too devine - done to perfection - succulent juicy and oh so tasty - served in traditional Portuguese style - brings back memories of the Algarve and Portugal. Seafood (prawn) curry delicious rounded of with their surprize pancake (crepe suzette) filled with a creamy smooth filing and delicious orange and lemon sauce. This is a must for the discerned eating out crowd - you will not be disappointed - service good - personal attention from owners and staff makes you feel at home and to top it all with a lovely view over the lagoon. A definate big YES from someone who appreciates good food, good service and good ambience.

“A great surprise !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

We were walking past this restaurant with no real intention of eating there, however we got talking to the owners ( who did not try and flag us in !! ), and was very impressed with the hospitality and warmth, from an owner run family business. Food was also fantastic !!, will be back.
