Not in the nicest of locations but the decor and food are very nice. It's Portuguese cuisine with a slight twist. They're very accommodating. Only a couple of dishes for vegetarians and no kids menu, but they'll do their best to rustle something up for you. Great wine store!

We visited this resteraunt as we were staying locally and it was recommended. We had a lovely meal and the pork and fig I had was the best meal I had in the fortnight that we were in Portugal. It is has a lovely environment and feels very authentic. The food was great as was the service. Highly recommended

Home baked bread to die for...followed by mains....portugese style beef and lamb chops. Dessert was great too. Extremely good value for... More
