We were amazed by the quality of the food in this value for money restaurant. There is nothing pretentious or over the top about this small restaurant. We just got good, honest service with two delicious meals and drinks for around 20 euros.

Meals remain hearty and excellent value. The restaurant feels authentic, and the staff are very pleasant. But on a recent visit we felt it had lost something from when we first came here a few years ago. Sardines and pork chops both came so overcooked as to be practically incinerated. The 'green soup', though, was traditional and very good. All in all, a cheap and cheerful stop for lunch or dinner: you certainly won't go hungry, but increasingly it feels a bit like quantity before quality.

We really enjoyed our meal here. The staff are friendly and service quick. I am very fussy about meat but there was not a pick of fat on it and it was lean, tender and juicy. There was so much food we struggled to eat it all and had no room for dessert. Bill came to €24.50 for two with bottle of water.

We had the fish ewith honey and pepper and the crepe with avocado and madeira wine. The latter was basically a medium warm crepe with to avocado halves next to it and a lot of madeira wine poured all over, i.e. it was all soaked and didn't taste like much else. The owner was nice, but forgot to bring us the bread we had ordered and also didn't react when I communictated in a polite way that the crepe was not for me.
