This is fine most of the time, although it can get a bit windy at times. We were served with preprandials and nibbles ( included in the set price) as well as... More

Location was fine but the service, although nice, was a bit slow. The baccalo was too way dry, and the pizzas soft and mediocre to say the least - the band was fine however

This was what Mindelo is about and the cultural aspects of the visit were what we sought and what we got. The food was basic Italian fayre but Ok and reasonably priced. The venue is... More
