Great value lunch menu @ less than £5.00, with choice of chicken or pork or several types of fish. Mario the waiter speaks perfect English and is very obliging.

"Chicken is very big - so that's why it is bloody" - fantastic explanation from waiter - twice! "Vino de casa" was more expensive than main course - for a small bottle (37.5 cl) Crazy! It's a Tourist trap!

We ate here twice as we'd really enjoyed our meal here. On our first visit we ordered the Seafood cataplana. It was excellent and at 28 euros for 2 really good value, it was really tasty and plenty of seafood. We returned a couple of nights later and I had the swordfish steak (with potatoes & veg) and hubby had the lamb chops (5 chops!) The portions were very generous and the food nicely cooked and well presented. I thought this was a great little restaurant.....good food at a good price.

The portions of food were large and good value. The staff were pleasant. Privacy on outside tables is limited as they sit you with strangers which I didn't like

this is just off the main square, but is easy to find as it is next door to the chemist. After our 1st visit here we were so pleased with the prices, the food and service we returned on a few occasions. Lunch menu is fantastic value and same size portions as you get in the evenings. For a set price of 4.90 euros you could choose from mackeral, sardines, pork chops, chicken piri piri, plus a few more items. all of the mentioned a fresh and grilled on charcoal. you were served two very large pork chops per portion (my fussy, ravenous teenage boys loved them) and such a fanrastic price. there is a good choice, especially portugese food. the shrimp cocktail was the best. my partner order the seafood rice - this is amazing - it consisits of fresh fish, crab, clams shrimp etc etc, now my partner is a 'big' eater and this beat him. it comes in to the table in a saucepan and you help yourself and the rest of the rice is kept warm in pan. my partner had four plates and there was still more left. i think this cost about 13 euros... (it does say for 2 people on menu and we asked if we could have one portion - i did wonder if they had still given a 2 person portion, but when the bill came we were only charged for one!) the gentleman who is on the door/waiter is tall and slim and very gentle and cares very much about you enjoying meal/service. I can't say about desserts as was always too full to order one! Overall we loved this place, great food, great prices, lovely relaxing setting.
