“Unimpressive”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

This restaurant dominates the main street and there are always queues to get in - but don't let that convince you this is the best place to eat. I'm half Portuguese and know what a good meal in this country consists of - this is not it. The dishes are really unsatisfying and service is slow and arrogant - hence the queues. I saw tourists getting annoyed this year and I gave up after a few minutes. It's not often I say I hate a restaurant - but I really hope it's not there on my next visit.

“Common restaurant...”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

I don't understand how could this restaurant be in the 1st place. I went to the restaurant with two people and everyone ask for a different dish. Only one was acceptable and the others were not bad but definitely not good. There are many other chip restaurants much better.
