“Delicious and lovely experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Had the piri piri chicken which was delicious. Really lovely staff that were helpful with selecting menu choices and wine, and let us in quite late when only a few other guests were still eating. Off the beaten path, a bit away from the main tourist traps. Highly recommend for a nice relaxing dinner in a friendly and nice atmosphere.

“Beautiful food ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Went here with family and my 8 month old who loved the swings. The service was first rate and friendly and the food was amazing and reasonably priced. I ordered the pepper steak which was beautifully cooked, my wife ordered the chicken curry which she loved and for desert I ordered the Portuguese version of an egg custard which was to die for and the wife had apple pie and ice cream which she loved. So far a week into our two week stay and this is easily the best place we have eaten which is why I'm compelled to write this review.

“not for me”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

Made a special effort to go here mainly due to the children's play area. We arrived at around quarter to seven. It was quiet,another family having drinks and a table of diners inside. More families arrived before we left. The play area has a little pool table - cost 2 euros. A little merry go round train and car, one Euro, bar fuseball, one Euro. A little playhouse, a table with a couple of games and a little slide. Our grandson had a nice time playing on everything and we had a table next to the play area so that we could keep a close eye on him. We ordered chicken escalope for him, and asked for boiled potatoes and not chips, the woman who served us agreed that children eat too many chips and said that she would serve it before we had ours, so far so good. I ordered beef stroganof, husband was undecided, and was advised that the tuna was fresh and would be cooked how he liked it. Our daughter ordered the chicken curry. It was on the menu as a special dish.

Our grandsons food came first as promised, the breadcrumb coating was more than cooked, the chicken was raw! It got sent back. Another was duly delivered, cooked. Ours then came. My husband really enjoyed the tuna. Our daughter's curry was, in her words, horrible and the sauce tasted like it came out of a packet. Now on to my "beef" stroganof. Tinned mushrooms outnumbered the little amount of beef, but worse was to come in that plate. A horrible slimy piece of what resembled skin with black warts about a centimetre thick and 2.5 centimetre long. I called the woman who served us and she said it was the skin from a tinned mushroom and went and got the tin to show me. We asked for the bill, paid the full price, who needs a scene on holiday, and left. The woman who served us called us a taxi, she gave our grandson a lollipop and a couple of sweets, she was courteous, so were we. We won't go back.
