The host of our B & B recommended this restaurant and we were delighted. Ambience, food, presentation, and service, all were the best we've had in Portugal. Try the white fish with shrimp sauce. It is superb!

Endeavouring to leave the crowds behind wound our way upwards and came upon this lovely old restaurant situated on a corner with a quaintly angled outside dining area. The food was excellent always with fresh seafood as its main item. As starters had a great...More
