We like Spanish tapas and would like to try the Portugese versions. The proprietor advised us the seabass tapas (which was todays special). Indeed it was very good, so were the other dishes we ordered. Staff was very friendly and helpfull. Ambience was ok but nothing special. Otherwise it would have scored excellent. Good value for money.

We cant get enough of this place! The owner/waitor Antonio is as charming as he is efficient and makes the best Sangria money can buy!. Mama delivers her secret Portuguese recipes time and time again to perfection and we cant get enough!, I would like to offer recommendations for dishes but when everything is so superb it is hard too! Meat, fish and vegetarians are all well catered for in a relaxed informal atmosphere.
Only the most critical could point out a minor decorative re-furb would move this on to another level, but this is like visiting friends in a great friendly atmosphere with beautiful tasty tapas style dishes.....It is a very dependable independent with exceptional value for money thrown in and is a must for the tourists as it is for the Bathonians! Enjoy,I know you will...........

Found the only choice in Bath to be chain pubs, Thai or Italian, so this Portugese was a welcome relief. Good food and deserves a visit as an independent.

We were warmly welcomed to this little restaurant on a Saturday night and even though we didn't have a reservation and the place was full, we were seated quite quickly. Our group of three shared 6 small dishes (like tapas), all of which were really tasty. We paid around £11 each.
The service is good and quick and the ambience warm and relaxing. It's a really nice place, even if you go just for drinks. I would like to revisit.
