We had a group of 13 visit this great restaurant. Everyone's food was outstanding and service was great too. I had the steak which was one of the nicest I have Ever had. Will definitely return on next visit. Very close to open square and outside escalator.

Lovely freshly cooked food. Garlic mushrooms delicious. I don't usually eat desert but couldn't resist the profiteroles with warm chocolate sauce. The evening was really made by the staff who were incredibly friendly, particularly Luis Garcia who made us feel like old friends. A nice change from the usual tourist restaurants. I would definitely recommend a visit.

Thought we would have a change from portuguese restaurants and try an italian. Glad we did as the food was very good and the staff both attentive and friendly. Took the advice of a previous review and had the chicken lasagne which was delicious. Would certainly go again.

Came here and had a pizza, true way to cook it with a thin base. We also had lasagne which was nice with the the correct sauce. Would revisit if we went back to Portugal.

Really good food, He had steak and I had salmon the first night. It was excellent. The second evening he had the steak again and I ate the Fettuccine del Mar. Happy to say it was excellent both nights. And very reasonably priced. Definitely worth a visit.

Thought I would try this restaurant on recommendation. I was very disappointed with the meal which was the risotto and only one choice of that. Not the usual flavours I am used to with this dish, very plain. The service was inconsistent, and I would have had dessert if I had been presented a dessert menu. I will not return.

Thank D J
