We have had several fabulous meals here over the last couple of years & we have never been let down. The food is delicious (the soups are always worth a try) and the menu changes often. The staff are professional, friendly & patient. Highly recommended!

Visited restaurant with friends. Great food and service-would definitely recommend. Probably best to book in advance if on a weekend as all tables were full.

Absolutely awesome meal. We had a couple special dietary requirements which the place literally bent over backwards to accommodate to, which again we thank you for. Very reasonably priced for such high quality food & service that you receive. Will definitely be eating here again the next time we're in the city.

Great for food, great for catching up & great for coffee too. Sat outside with children in tow and service was still good. Coffee is nice. Pastel de natas are beautiful. Nice setting. Would recommend eating in here too but this trip was purely for caffeine

Booked for lunch and glad we did as it was really busy. Lovely warm welcome from the staff and we were seated straight away. The restaurant is very cosy and relaxed. The menu is small yet had plenty of choice. We opted for the prawns in butter which were absolutely delicious and the brisket which melted in the mouth. The... More

I was really excited about going here for a roast dinner as many people had highly recommended it to me. However to discover there was no vegetarian roast dinner option, I was very disappointed. In addition, there was only one vegetarian main course on the standard meal. Although this was very delicious, it was not nice to have no choice... More
