Nice place with good food, very friendly staff and good value. Loved the piri piri chicken and would recommend it.

We went to this restaurant on the Saturday night of our holiday, hoping for some good grilled food. Husband had mixed kebab which, when the pepper and onion were removed, consisted of a tiny amount of meat. I had six tiny and very pallid lamb chops, flavourless. The service was poor, possibly because of a large table of expats who seemed quite demanding. Altogether a great disappointment.

Dear friend
onlly now had the chance to respond to your review, about the mixed kebab could happen
a bad preparation of the porcion but normal served with 300 grs of meat with great quality
(2 pices of pork loin, 2 chicken breast and of beef tenderloin),about the lamb chops we use
the best meat of young lambs not old lambs that`s why they don`t the strong taste of old lamb or frosen lamb,
i`m always in contact with the clientes so they should tell me what`s wrong because we just try to do the best.
i`m sorry if your meal it was not the greatest and hope to have you again as a cliente
to showld you the best of us.
all the best for you and falimy

Visited last year,This year it was the finest local restaurant we visited.
The golden Bream I had was the best fish dish and the fillet steak the best meat (the pepper sauce a must)! The staff are second to none. It would be a crime not to visit!

Had a superb prawn and squid kebab, tender and tasty. Great home made creme caramel too! Only negative was unnecessary tv on (no sound) showing Benfica TV. House white not the greatest either but made up for by free port at end of meal.

Visited this restaurant in September 2012. It was late in the evening and they were about to close up but the staff were brilliant! We didn't feel rushed in anyway and the steak was the best I have ever tasted! I cannot wait to try it again this year
