If you are looking for something nice but small and quiet this is definitely a good place to go. The owners are also very friendly and speak fluent English! The food is really good and their menu includes a lot of tapas style dishes. Don’t expect to park right in front of the restaurant though, walking is probably the best way to get there.

This small restaurant serves very delicious small tapas dishes.
The couple who owns the place, do everything to make you feel at home - warm welcome, nicely decorated room, pleasant background music, but first and foremost delicious small dishes based on Portuguese tradition but with a modern touch.
The selection of wine is not large but adequate.
All in all a wonderful experience.

I ate there last night. If the food doesnt do it for you (its great great portoguese food), the people will. The husband/ wife duo that run it are incredibly nice and welcoming. Great food and people!!!

We really enjoyed our moment there, and Joao, the chef is very creative. The service, done by his wife, is as well as we could expected in a small but nice restaurant.

We visited this restaurant on a Satuarday luchtime, we were the only people in there but we had a great luch with excellent food and service. It is often difficult for me to get vegetarian food in Europe but as the owners spoke very good English it was easy to explain to them that I didn't eat meat! We would definitely go again.
