Not sure if we picked a bad night or were just unlucky in our choice of dishes.
Tried the garlic bread with cheese for starters - I liked it but my gf didn't like it.
Mains were bife a cavalo (sirloin steak with fried egg on top) and galinha piri (chicken with strips with peppers and potatoes).
My steak was full of joints and nothing like sirloin I've had before. I've not had much Portuguese food before so I'm not sure whether it should have been like that. Was a bit bland though.
My partner had the chicken (tried a bit of hers - which tasted good) but I'm feeling the onset of heartburn as I'm typing this (gf says she feels the same).
The other reviews mention the seafood being good so maybe I should have stuck with that.
Our waitress was friendly and explained the dishes and offered us the pre-theatre option of two pastas and a starter.
If this is the one of the best westcliff-on-sea has to offer, I strongly suggest you guys come down to Brighton and see sample some of the amazing restaurants down here. :)
