The restaurant is an old fashion place, service is good and food was OK. I was expecting something else, more ellaborated dishes, more flavor, better service. I think is overpriced versus quality.

Although there is a menu, Paulo just asks you what you would like to eat and produces an excellent meal. You shouldn't miss going there.

The most wonderful place. The food was incredible, staff were friendly and knowledgeable about dishes and told us about local ingredients used which only added to the experience. Service was fantastic. Would go again if we weren't leaving tomorrow.
