Good food at reasonable prices. You would pay twice as much for the same food if you went two miles down the road to the Marina.

Another place in Portugal where we were only given one of the menus where there were actually several to choose from thus limiting options. Little choice for vegetarians/vegans and very slow service.

Came here as it was located near to our hotel. We ordered a chateaubriand which was quite good. The service was quite slow and was noticed by other tables. All in all it is the definition of average. Food ok. Service ok. Value ok.
