They accommodate us on the 31st Dec 2017, when the service is pure madness...lots of people and a Q to get in. Fortunately I've booked in advance. I recommend booking as it's a very popular place. Starters are fantastic, besides the cheese, breads and pates,...More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local gentleman for excellent home style Portuguese cooking. It is a unassuming locale off the beaten track but so worth the effort to find! The service was impeccable and the food just delicious!

No atmosphere, but maybe because we were early...should have been perfect as we were the first customers - I chose chicken fillet which was served with chips and salad. My husband chose the white fish. A chef was not really necessary to produce what we...More
