This place is just a diamond.... Why??? Because of simplicity, kindness, quality of products, people who works there... I never say it but you should absolutely go there. Cataplana is marvelous... Wine excellent

If you want an authentic Portuguese experience this isn’t it but with waiters enticing people in its always busy. There are better options IMO in the local vicinity. Pricing is good though.

There are lots of places around the old town that offer tourist menus and this is one of the better ones that we had. There's a decent selection of meals and it's good value with a drink included for less than €11 per person. The...More
