Very standard portuguese food with amazing ingredients and superbly cooked. The result is just simpler and better from the ones we have done until now which are super well ranked. Definitively the one place to go if you want portuguese food on the beach front

Welcoming restaurant on the boardwalk, with lovely & very friendly staff and nice food. The fish soup is brilliant and (don't judge us) the cheese burger is delicious! I can recommend the ice coffee for a cool down!
